"I thought of Zooropa at the time as a work of genius. I really thought our pop discipline was matching our experimentation and this was our Sgt Pepper. I was a little wrong about that."
- Bono on the Zooropa album
The show where the Red Rocks show was recorded would originally have been postponed due to bad weather, but the band couldn't afford this because they had a film crew over. That is the reason the show happened regardless.
