We have Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullin Jr, and more in Funko form, all the news and set info about these cool Pops and the best places to buy them from online.

U2 were instrumental in taking stadium touring to the next level with huge screens and branded stage props. They even had elevators/lifts to get them to the stage area upon occasion. I grew up with U2 music and considered the likes of  Sunday Bloody Sunday groundbreaking rock… But it was New Year’s Day that really made me notice them. I was lucky enough to go see them on their With or Without you tour at Wembley Arena in London UK.

These new U2 Funko Pop Rocks figures are inspired by one of the most groundbreaking stadium tours, the Zoo TV tour. The show featured huge giant video screens, lights galore, multimedia presentations, and masses of cutting-edge tech.

The spectacular production values were something that we really had never seen before in a stadium gig, it truly was groundbreaking. The resulting sold-out Achtung Baby shows were an incredible success.

These new Pop Rocks U2′ Zoo TV Tour (Achtung Baby) Funko Pops are a vinyl snapshot of U2 at their absolute peak in vinyl form.

The U2 Zoo TV stadium tour took place from 1992 to 1993.

The Zoo TV tour was not a Netflix and chill kind of deal, this was a full-on rock, music experience designed to bring U2s brand of music to a broader audience.

The tour was a massive success with the fans and music critics and 30 years is still considered one of the most innovative and influential concert tours of all time.

The Zoo TV tour was ambitious in its stage design, with an array of huge video screens and small monitors, and other visual effects. There were also satellite link-ups that allowed the band to interact with fans around the world.

The electricity bill really must have been quite something.

There’s can be no denying that U2 is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. And if you’re lucky enough to see them live like me then you will understand why.
