Performance notes: Live debuts of Zoo Station, The Fly, Even Better Than The Real Thing, Mysterious Ways, One, Until The End Of The World, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World, Ultra Violet, and Love Is Blindness. First time U2 covered Satellite Of Love in full, though Bono had snippeted it a few times during Bad in the 1980s. Bullet The Blue Sky and Desire are distinctly different to past live versions. The former is even more hard-rocking than it was on the Joshua Tree and Lovetown tours and features a longer solo. The latter has completely different guitar effects, and during the song, Bono plays the role of Mirrorball Man, a parody of US televangelists. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

29/2/1992 - Lakeland, Florida - This review has minor spoilers
The first night of Zoo TV was a bit of a rough one - you can tell the band was definitely still trying to figure out how to play some of the new material as well as the rearranged older material. Bono forgets lyrics here and there, some noticeable transitions are either non existent or quite clunky, and some things are just entirely different, for example Even Better Than The Real Thing is first played in a much lower key. Mysterious Ways has an entirely different guitar solo and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses has some noticeable differences too. It’s definitely an interesting start to the Zoo TV tour, and I wouldn’t say it’s bad at all. Some things are actually super cool which were sadly dropped later in the tour. Amazing ad libs are found throughout the show which never came back, and the “fade away” section on Bad is also entirely different. It’s definitely interesting to see how the tour evolved over time, so to see the first full show is definitely a treat.

"I tend to do something with the guitar sound, use certain effects fo fatten it, rather than just use it clean - though on 'War', it's cleaner than the previous two albums. I use the echo in a very concise way - I try to use the repeats in time with the music. Most guitar players would use the full spectrum of the guitar to get across the power and dynamics, but by using the echo I can get away without using the bottom strings so much. I tend to use three-, maybe four-note chords rather than the full six and to use the top strings, the top end, which gives that distance between the bass and the guitar, and gives me a bit more freedom."
