"Following the tour on the forums and being part of nearly every setlist party since the middle of the New York residency was a lot of fun. There are some fantastic shows and some big surprises! Although we all complained at one stage or another about a lack of variation in the setlist, I really enjoyed it!"
"Zooropa is U2's peak of experimentation and creativity in the 90's. Zooropa, Numb, Lemon, Stay (Faraway, So Close!), Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car, Some Days Are Better Than Others, The First Time, Dirty Day and The Wanderer are some of the greatest songs that U2 have ever written. A superb collection of songs which I never tire of listening to."
"At the very end of an album you’re at the height of your powers in terms of writing, arranging and performing. It’s a shame that you have to stop then and start the other phase of what we do, which is playing live. This time we haven’t really stopped. Bono is trying to capitalize on that momentum and that sharpness.”
- The Edge prior to the Innocence and Experience tour
