It would also include Love Is Blindness from the Numb video single, One from the Achtung Baby Solicitation Kit, as well as new videos^, including a treatment for One a la the 360 Tour video, with U2 in a cramped Trabant outside the Olympic Stadium in Berlin^. This could be done with old footage for each AB/Zooropa LP track. 	For example, alternate videos of the grainy b/w footage taken in Tenerife for Even Better Than The Real Thing^, in Fez for Mysterious Ways^, in Berlin for Until The End Of The World^, Hansa and STS Studios for So Cruel^,in STS showing Johnny Cash singing The Wanderer^, and after reading about the making of the Numb video in Bill Flanagan's book, I want to see all the unused Numb footage!-The Videos/Director's Commentaries-The Videos, The Cameos, And A Whole Lot Of Interference-Triplecast footage-Old Mini Documentaries...1-Zoo TV The Inside Story2-A Fistful Of Zoo TV3-Trabantland4-The Story Of One5-Missing Sarajevo-New Mini Documentaries...1-Hansa's Heroes/Bringing Up Baby In Berlin^2-Zoorophonic/The Making Of Zooropa^3-At The Mixing Desk w/Daniel Lanois and Bono...A Song By Song Commentary on Achtung Baby^4-At The Mixing Desk w/Brian Eno and The Edge...A Song By Song Commentary on Zooropa^5-Tokyo^-The Original Complete Pay-Per-View Live In Sydney Broadcast (w/Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World and Zoo Confessional reinstated, as well as the original camera angles)-Stop Sellafield Now -The Concert Video Mega StashA show from every month of the 1992-1993 world tour.For example...-Disc One/Lakeland Florida 29 February 1992-Disc Two/Boston 17 March 1992-Disc Three/Los Angeles 12 April 1992-Disc Four/Barcelona 16 May 1992-Disc Five/Stockholm 11 June 1992-Disc Six/Manchester 19 June 1992(Stop Sellafield Now Benefit)-Disc Seven/Washington D.C. 16 August 1992-Disc Eight/New York "Zoo York" 30 August 1992-Disc Nine/Detroit 9 September 1992-Disc Ten/Kansas City 18 October 1992-Disc Eleven/El Paso 27 October 1992-Disc Twelve/Mexico City 24 November 1992-Disc Thirteen/Rotterdam 9 May 1993-Disc Fourteen/Ovideo 19 May 1993-Disc Fifteen/Berlin 15 June 1993-Disc Sixteen/Basel 30 June 1993-Disc Seventeen/Verona 3 July 1993-Disc Eighteen/London 11 August 1993-Disc Nineteen/Dublin 27 August 1993-Disc Twenty/Adelaide 16 November 1993-Disc Twenty-One/Auckland/4 December 1993-Disc Twenty-Two/Tokyo 10 December 1993+BONUS VIDEO-Zoo TV Special/December 1992-Top Of The Pops/One February 1992-BBC Radio Session Footage w/Mark Goodier 13 February 1992-Rockline session footage w/"mystery caller" Bill, from Arkansas...28 August 1992-Automatic Baby/One 20 January 1993-Thalia Theatre 31 January 1993A) Bono's anti-Fascism rally speechB) Bono, Edge, and Jo Shankar performing One-Achtung Baby and Zooropa Trailers-U2 And Axl Rose/One/Vienna 24 May 1992-U2 And Daniel Lanois/I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For/Montreal 27 August 1992-Larry Sings Whiskey In The Jar/Foxboro 20 August 1992-Allen Ginsberg's Cigarette Smoking Rag, set to the music of Numb-The Fly Speaks Reel*-The Mirrorball Man Speaks Reel*-Macphisto Speaks Reel**NOTE: Willie Williams said in Propaganda many years ago that some great footage of Bono in character as The Fly and Macphisto were taken back in 1991-1993. It was just Bono making loads of funny quips. Some of it is seen in the Sydney documentaries, such as Bono saying "never trust a cowboy" and "if you want a cottage industry, take up knitting". I can only imagine what Macphisto might say...-Bono's Guided Tour Of Dublin^-Bono's Guided Tour Of U2's Berlin^(from behind the wheel of a Trabant)-Numb Karaoke Video-MTV's U2 Zoo TV Interview by Kurt Loder-Wild Irish Rose 1990 (From "Bringing It All Back Home"/Irish TV Broadcast)-Until The End Of The World/Freddie Mercury Tribute-Macphisto At The Vatican July 1993(I wanna say that he was filmed there, but maybe he was only photographed.

How much would you pay for it?Also, the vidiwall segment with Lou Reed is great, but I've always wondered why they didn't try the same thing with Johnny Cash. After Can't Help Falling In Love, closing shows with Cash on the screen, giving that deranged benediction....I always thought that would have been fantastic!

As I said, there's not much chance of it happening, but the keyword is Fantasy.

It's a dream sheet. Nothing more.

However, it's not impossible, just improbable.

Most of what I've listed is stuff that we know exists.

As Bono put it, "dream out loud".

Bump this thread higher and higher, get everyone interested, and who knows what might happen and who might see it?

The Internet itself was unlikely once, same with a Bill of Rights.

I'm very doubtful about doubt.

In the meantime, yes, it's a fantasy.

For now.

If it was announced a year in advance that an expensive item like this would be released, but the announcement came a year in advance of the release, most of could buy it.

Perhaps a petition is in order.

To add your name to a petition wouldn't be hard, and it could get the ball rolling.

Look, I shook Edge's and Bono's hand, got Bono's autograph, Dallas Schoo's autograph, as well as Joe o'herhily's, Dennis Sheehan's. Had I said to myself, "no chance", then the result is obvious. I believe we have power as fans. I think we should use it.

Mate I love a good petition.

 

Anyways, welcome to the Zoo, and don't mind us, we're a cheeky mob!
