While Pimm has sadly passed away, well known U2 insider Caroline Von B. has taken over and kept this tradition alive. On a side note most of the book is written by Pimm Jal de la Parra. This is the U2 book that the U2 crew take on the road. I'm not sure if it says it anywhere but apparently he had passed away during the creation of this updated version. A few people had gotten together to finish it off for him.

Before the World Wide Web made tracking concert tours, set lists, etc. as easy as it is today, this book exhaustively collected information on every live performance by U2 (and was updated after every major tour). It is a fascinating piece of documentation - one I highly recommend to U2 fans who've relied only on the WWW for archival information on U2's live performances.

More by Pimm Jal de la Parra. This book is an absolute must for fans of U2 and ESPECIALLY for collectors of U2 bootlegs. It's like a bible that charts the correct dates for every show U2 has ever played (up until the 1998 publication. David Bowie: The concert tapes. Pimm Jal de la Parra.

Pimm Jal de la Parra, 1966-2002. Some time after the Zoo TV tour, the book U2 Live: A Concert Documentary dropped into my lap and left me speechless

Pimm Jal de la Parra, 1966-2002. U2 show designer Willie Williams remembers a gifted U2 fan. U. om April 16, 2002. Pimm Jal de la Parra, U2 live show archivist extraordinaire, has died. Some time after the Zoo TV tour, the book U2 Live: A Concert Documentary dropped into my lap and left me speechless. Being something of an archivist myself I was deeply impressed by such a comprehensive history of U2's live career - especially as this was long before the Internet made such data collection much more feasible. The book instantly became U2's final authority on all things regarding touring history.

If you are in a group of hardcore U2 fans, and you say, "the U2 bible" or "the Pimm book", they will all know which book you mean. For collectors, bootleggers, and general fans, this is THE book. While Pimm has sadly passed away, well known U2 insider Caroline Von B. has taken over and kept this tradition alive. This is the U2 book that the U2 crew take on the road. Need I say more?

This book is an absolute must for fans of U2 and ESPECIALLY for collectors of U2 bootlegs. It's like a bible that charts the correct dates for every show U2 has ever played (up until the 1998 publication.)
The correct set lists and supporting acts are also mentioned for the vast majority of the shows. Also, most shows have descriptions of highlights, lowlights, etc. Want to find out more about the show you're about to buy a bootleg for? Get out this book!
This book was updated shortly after PopMart ended, but unfortunately it seemed very very rushed and therefore there is little to no information about any PopMart shows save for the debut. (Only dates are given.) Nevertheless, it is definite that this book will continue to be updated, hopefully soon with a complete PopMart coverage and then with the whole Elevation tour.
This book must sit on every U2 fans shelf. Highly recommended!

This is the updated version. The first book that came out covered U2 from their earliest stages up through to the beginnings of the Popmart tour. This one carries us through the Popmart tour right through to the end of the Elevation tour. Pretty much every U2 show ever played is covered to some extent, whether it's just with a setlist or a lengthy review. Each tour has a page or so dedicated to an overview and then each show is detailed to some extent. If you're just a fan of the band you'll get a kick out of many of the shows details (the pizza order/delivery from 1992 being fantastic). If you're a collector of shows this book is to U2 fans what Deadbase or those Tapers Compendium books are to Grateful Dead fans. It's either a lot of fun to read or a rich source of information. Just a blast.
On a side note most of the book is written by Pimm Jal de la Parra. I'm not sure if it says it anywhere but apparently he had passed away during the creation of this updated version. A few people had gotten together to finish it off for him. They most certainly did him proud.

I, like many others, agree that this is the best biographical account of the career of U2 as a live band. Other than listing & describing every single U2 concert known to man, it highlights all of the other juicy tidbits in between. I must add that the photos are also very nice. Unfortunately, I cannot give this second edition a full "5 stars" because it seems as though it was published too early. The stuff on PopMart is only the first five shows, so the PopMart info is virtually nothing special. If you you have the old one, save your money; if you don't, might as well buy this one! I don't know why Pimm couldn't have waited out the rest of the tour.

Every die hard U2 fan must own this book. A Concert Documentary provides extensive info including venue, date, attendance figures and descriptions of, literally, EVERY single show U2 has ever played (up until the end of the Zooropa tour). It also includes many pictures. The last few pages contain comprehensive lists of: songs never performed live, cover songs performed, guests appearing onstage, etc. Absolutely essential.

This is the ultimate compendium for the true U2 fan. Not only does it document every single show they've ever played but it gives a lot of background and behind the scenes info on the albums. When I found out this updated version of the book was coming out I got excited and now that I've received it I was not disappointed!

Don't even think about being a hardcore U2 fan and not owning this book!!! It is perfect for U2 collectors, trivia ( almost won a radio contest today thanks to this book!!!), and is an Ideal book to make a collection of rare tracks with... Ever heard the U2 song "Womanfish"??? I wouldn't have had I not have owned this book!!! You can find mp3's of songs you didn't know the title to before, or songs you didn't know exsisted!!! Plus, learn all the facts about the shows you have tapes or cd's of, or shows of theirs you have been to!!! 5+++ stars and then some!!! Can't wait for the Elevation version for the complete Popmart and Elevation stuff, one of the best books I own!!!
Hands-down the best book for collectors, fans, completists and trivia buffs. Compiled from thousands of sources by devoted but objective fans, this book is a good read, reference book and very interesting look inside each tour. As a long time collector, I have always heard that if a setlist exists in this book, there is a recording of that show, somewhere in the world.
