Musical Interludes: Zoo TV

We thought we might go with a concert clip today, from U2. The Zoo TV tour followed up their albums Achtung Baby and Zooropa, featuring a mix of the old and the new. This clip, from Sydney, features two songs from The Joshua Tree, namely Running To Stand Still and Where The Streets Have No Name. The two songs are a stark contrast to each other; the first is a slow ballad about despair and addiction, while the second is an open ended song, open to countless interpretation, and a staple of live tours to this day. Enjoy, and if you're a fan, let us know, particularly if you've seen the band in concert.
