Performance notes: U2's first concert in South Africa, the only African country they have performed in to date. This concert was not originally in draft tour itineraries distributed at the start of Popmart's third leg in 1997; instead, a concert at Singapore's National Stadium was scheduled provisionally on this date. The Singapore show never happened (to date Japan is the only Asian country in which U2 have performed) and the Cape Town show was added. Happy birthday is sung for Adam Clayton, who turned 38 three days earlier. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"The actual screen arrived very late in the day. The costumes arrived the night before the show. We were still figuring out how to play the songs. This was material that had been generated in a studio environment and we really hadn't a clue how to make these songs work live."
- Adam on Popmart's opening night in Las Vegas

Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
