They eventually turned Mofo into a more direct and shorter song to suit a live setting, if anyone listens to the first few Popmart shows up to New York you can hear them evolving the arrangement and trying out different ideas, some better than others. This is my favourite early version...
BTW: superb version, indeed, although I prefer the later ones when they actually stopped several times for Bono's verses to have bigger impact.
That's one of the (few) things I like about Popmart over other tours: they were SO underrehearsed by the time the tour started that many of the versions evolved throughout the tour instead of staying the same as usual.
