Zooropa is U2's eight studio album, released on 5 July 1993. Regarded as one of U2's most experimental albums, Zooropa is one of its kind and it's likely U2 will never make an album as Zooropa again. In this slideshow we explore the themes and meaning of Zooropa and its songs. Zooropa, an album about uncertainty, consumerism and hope in a time of chaos and overload.
"No one knew we had a sense of humour, we had become glum rock's leading lights. Zoo TV opened up all the possibilities of theatre; role-playing, irony, satire and farce, and finally killed off the old idea that we were a band of painfully earnest people who didn't know how to have a good time."
