U2 stream PopMart Live From Mexico City

U2 are streaming a concert from their 1997 Popmart tour in the third installment of their new limited-edition series, “The Virtual Road.”

“Popmart Live From Mexico City” captures the band on tour in support of their ninth studio album, “Pop”, which was previewed with the techno-heavy lead single, "Discothèque", before it debuted at No. 1 in 27 countries, including the US and UK.

The second of U2’s two sold-out December shows at Foro Sol Stadium was filmed and originally released the following year.

The year-long Popmart tour saw U2 play 93 dates before almost 4 million fans, while earning a gross of US$173.6 million.

U2 launched “The Virtual Road” on St. Patrick’s Day with their 2001 homecoming performance “U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle, Ireland”, and followed that up with 1983’s “Live At Red Rocks”; the 4-part series will wrap up on April 10 with “iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE: Live in Paris.”
