Product Description

U2's PopMart Live from Mexico City is released on DVD for the first time on September 18th in two formats, a Special Limited Edition 2-DVD Deluxe Packaging version and a single disc, Standard version. Described as a sci-fi disco supermarket, the PopMart Tour opened in its "spiritual home", Las Vegas on April 25, 1997. All trash and kitsch, PopMart introduced a giant mirrorball lemon, a 100 foot cocktail stick - complete with olive, and the works of Lichtenstein, Warhol and Haring, to a live rock audience: a production experience never quite seen before. Filmed at the Foro Sol Autodromo in Mexico City on December 3, 1997, PopMart Live from Mexico City was directed by David Mallet and first released on video the following year. Both the video and audio have been digitally remastered and the DVD includes a brand new 5.1 surround mix in DTS and Dolby Digital of the concert.

I love this concert, or better to say "Live Show".
Carlos R. Castillo
This concert is great and is worth having in your dvd library, if you are a true U2 fan.
Alisha J. Almond
I am most impressed, however, with the amazing sound quality of this DVD.

I never sat down to watch a concert DVD of U2. This one blew me away. I've always half followed U2, though have never been a die-hard. Phases I guess. But having really liked their "Pop" album at one point I decided to see this DVD and man! these guys put on a killer show! They really vascilate between soft and loud. Bono's got the audience in the palm of his hand and they are loving it. Besides many of the cool cuts off Pop, so many classics were jumping out there as well and when you least expect it. But it's just amazing how many "classic" songs U2 really have in their repertoire. I guess the thing that impressed me most, besides an incredible light and sound show and the songs themselves was the way they delivered some of them in different garb. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is sung softly the whole way through with just the Edge and an acoustic guitar. And really so many songs just kept this edgy yet pleasant tension on low boil so that when they did let loose, they really let loose! These guys know how to build a vibe and put on a show. No mistake about it.

Ok, at the time, U2's Popmart episode looked a little gimmicky if not like a mis-step in their march toward rock canonization. But strangely, at least at first, looking back on it now, it looks more like genius than it could have back then. In the arc of their rock legacy, the experiment now looks like just the right dose of sarcasm blended with a hint of 'give em what they want if that's what we will get accused of anyway' to fit in between the old/middle era and their current image. It's almost as if by embracing this joke when they did, they gained the credibility to step up to the next level in the music/society hierarchy they now exist in.

So, with no concerns about how this whole charade comes off now, the music itself shines just as well as on some of the other recent tours and DVDs. Of course, the tunes indigenous to the Pop album are what they are, but the treatment of the some of the older favorites melds the sounds reasonably easily where it makes sense, while the others fit in fine in the arrangements that largely have been carried on even through the recent tour.

The imagery unique to this tour is as fun to look at now, even from someone who really didn't pay attention 10 years ago, as it must have been for the huge Mexico City crowd at this particular concert.

The audio quality is fantastic, with a nice balance of the four performers' instruments and voices with the crowd. This disc puts the crowd singing on a higher volume level than some of the other U2 discs, which gives it an accurate live feeling, as well as helping to make sense of the somewhat off-beat vocals U2 concert fans expect of Bono these days-- at times, he clearly struggles with the crowd as he attempts to deliver the vocals in a style different from the records.

The video quality is not good, but you should know it was recorded on standard video anyway, so don't expect miracles. It is in 4:3 format as well.

THIS DVD IS LIKE YOU ARE THERE
-THERE IN THE LAST ROW OF THE STADIUM

As the a name says, this is concert video of the U2 in Mexico City during the tour to support the CD "Pop". It is a little over 2 hours and there are no extras besides the sound options.

THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS DVD IS THAT IT AUTOMATICALLY PLAYS WHEN YOU PUT IN YOUR DVD PLAYER. You don't have to fish through menus to get the concert started. And it begins right at the start of the concert. Although there is intro music and the band is shown walking to the stage, it is still enjoyable. There is none of the pre-concert crap to get through like some videos have.

This DVD is much like the CD "Pop". "Pop" had a muted, distant feel to it. It was not as sharp and bright as earlier U2 albums. This concert and video is much the same way. So, it is a little hard to really get into and feel as if you are there. It more like being in the back row.

The stage show is very bright with vivid colors, but that does not come through in the video. It is as if the bright lights washed out the video.

Most of the camera shots are from far away. Even the close ups have a feel that they were taken from afar (like a megazoom was used).

The sound quality is mediocre. This is the worst sounding U2 live I have ever heard. Some have raved about the remixing of the sound to 5.1 for the DVD. Well, you do get some interesting sound effects, but I don't think the sound quality is very good. The sound quality is actually better if you listen to the DVD in stereo than in 5.1.

The sound and video really don't seem to go together. They are not out of sync, that just don't seem to match. It doesn't pull you into the concert.

I was able to see U2 for the first time at PopMart in Salt Lake, Utah and it was AWESOME!!!!!! You are really an anal person if you can't get past the giant lemon, and U2 will never be able to please people like you. The lemon, it was the coolest!!! I got chills when they came out of the lemon at intermission. Obviously you lemon haters have never seen a lame Rolling Stones show with a giant snake-like contraption for their prop. I haven't heard anyone crying that they destroyed their careers because of that. So why the uproar over this album and tour, I don't get it. If you are a true U2 fan this album was great in its own right. The lighting the stage the lemon, etc. did not detract from the songs at all in concert. Bullet the blue sky was one of the best songs they did that night and it comes from 1987. This concert is great and is worth having in your dvd library, if you are a true U2 fan.
