Z is for ZooTV & Zubaz (2017 Blogging A to Z)

Welcome to my '92 Time Capsule!  This is it!  The end, the last day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge!!!!  It's been an interesting experience, one which I reflect on at a later date, but for now...

Today's letter is Z.  Here we go...

The ZooTV Tour was a worldwide concert tour performed by U2 in support of their 1991 album, Achtung Baby.  The tour began in late February 1992 and concluded in December 1993 and was comprised of 5 legs and 157 shows.  It was the highest grossing tour of 1992 and the 6th highest grossing tour of the 1990s.


Zubaz is brand of pants that were, unfortunately, in my humble opinion, overly popular in the 1990s.  They were one of the big fashion trends of 1992.

Zubaz initially began as a line of shorts marketed as functional, comfortable clothing for weightlifters.  The brand expanded into other clothing items, but the pants became the most popular item in the line and became synonymous with the name brand.  The pants are tapered at the ankle, include an elastic waistband, and are very baggy.  The pants were originally designed with a zebra print, but was later sold in numerous designs. 

The pants were very popular with NFL players and fans which led to a crossover appeal in the mainstream.

On a personal note, I never owned a pair of Zubaz because I thought they were hideous. I still think they are one of the worst fashion trends of the '90s.  I've never seen U2 in concert either.

Alright!  'Fess up!  Did you own a pair of Zubaz?  If you did, what color were they?  Have you seen U2 in concert?  What did you think?

Well, folks, we've reached the end...  Hallelujah!  Twenty-six letters and twenty-six blog entries.  Whew!  I'm beat!  I hope you've enjoyed my month-long trip down memory lane to the year that was 1992.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
