2021 will mark the 30 year anniversary of U2‘s groundbreaking Achtung Baby album and the spectacular Zoo TV tour that came in the wake of the release.

 

In two recent interviews with Rolling Stone, both the Edge and Adam Clayton stated a desire to revisit the Zoo TV concept. Said the Edge: “We do want to celebrate it, but we’ll see…At some point, I’d love to do something again with the Zoo TV idea. It’s weird how it’s come around. It was very prescient.”

 

Adam Clayton stated: “We don’t revisit it in a spirit of nostalgia. We revisit it in a spirit to refresh and expand on. I think if it is your catalog, if it is your history, there’s nothing wrong with you going back into it and reinterpreting it in a different way for a different time.”
