U2 Popmart Live From Mexico City

U2 Popmart Live From Mexico City

Has there ever been a more obnoxious musician than Bono during the promotion of U2’s worst album, Pop? The holier-than-thou front-man answers that question with his ridiculously inflated persona and outrageous wardrobe on this likely long-awaited DVD, which shows him entering the stage dressed in a white pointy hood and his idiotic "muscle” shirt. And yet, as much as you want to condemn him, as soon as the music begins, he’s an unstoppable, magnetic performer who knows how to engage an audience for the entire 25-song set. Sure, Popmart features probably the least convincing set list you’ll find from a U2 tour but somehow the Dublin boys make you join in on a dumb single like "Discothèque” thanks to a wonderfully camp entrance out of the giant lemon. And they still deliver everlasting goose bumps during "Bullet the Blue Sky” and of course, "Where the Streets Have No Name.” This is a must for all fans. (Island)
