Arguably the most excessive tour ever (although the ZooTV
tour certainly comes close). It began on April 25, 1997 in Las Vegas
and finished in Johannesburg
, South Africa
on March 21, 1998.
For $52 a ticket you got to see U2 play live (subjectively, an incredible experience) among the largest LED screen ever made (something like 150ft wide by 75ft tall), a gigantic McDonalds arch that framed and divided the LED screen, a 100ft tall toothpick with a speared olive on it, and a 40ft tall, mirrored disco-ball lemon that the band re-entered the stage in after the intermission.
Supposedly PopMart is the last of U2's huge stadium tours.
