Synopsis by Mark Deming
After the release of their 1997 album Pop, Irish rockers U2 staged their biggest and most ambitious stage show to date, the Popmart tour, which found the band using broad theatrics and elaborate effects to bring a witty, intelligent, but emotionally compelling message to stadium-size audiences. This home video release was taped during the Popmart tour's Mexico City date, as the band plays a 23-song, career-spanning set. Selections include "Discoteque," "Wake Up Dead Man," "Until the End of the World," "Mysterious Ways," "Bullet the Blue Sky," "Desire," and "I Will Follow."
