Title: U2 TJT 2017 Tour DVD/Film?
Post by: aviastar on March 24, 2017, 12:29:02 PM
Sorry if I missed this, but do you think there will be a concert film of one of the 2017 TJT shows like they did with I+E Paris and other tours?  If so, I would definitely be all over that. The only show I could have possibly attended this year is on my father's 60th birthday...and I bid for an assignment to fly to his home airport and suprise him...so unfortunately, I am going to have to sit this tour out.

But I'm really hoping to see it on DVD - or better yet, get it on Netflix!

I'm sure there probably will be, but this is the first tour where I feel like it's possible that they won't, especially since it's relatively short. Hopefully they will release one though.

If they don't, I will jump off the highest building I can find, (kidding, sort of) since I, too, have to skip this tour. They really have to, don't they? I mean, RHMT has never been played live. so, they HAVE to.

I think they'll do one of the last shows. Brussel is the last one, but I don't know if they'll film that. Paris they did last tour. Amsterdam is a very ugly stadium to film in (not because it's a soccer club which I don't like, but because of the roof with big constructions ;)). So maybe London or Berlin?

Not to worry! But if they do RHMT AND Luminous Times, then you may worry.  ;D

theres not a chance they WONT do this. it's just a matter of how many will the release? Elevation had 2, Vertigo had 3 if you include the 3D film and the Milan DVD that came with 18 Singles, then 360/i+e just had 1 each. i hope they do a bluray/cd like coldplay does so i can get the audio.

I also believe it would need to be filmed "out west". Rose bowl would make sense since it is the closest location to the actual tree. But 360 was filmed there. So maybe Dallas or midwest Kentucky instead? Tennessee possibly?

They could follow through on what they originally planned 30 years ago for the end of the Joshua Tree Tour & film 2 concerts in Buenos Aires. As it is well known, those concert plans fell through due to logistics so they filmed the last 2 concerts of the tour at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, AZ.

Although now that I think it through some more, I don't know if it would really have the same impact since they already performed Mothers of The Disappeared with Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo on stage during the first Popmart concert in Argentina.

It's madness not to do an official release of this, given that its their biggest tour in nearly a decade and playing a lot of songs that have been absent for either 30 years or ever. In any event, they'll be multicam edits on YooToob within a week of the first show anyway!

If they did do a DVD for this tour, firstly I don't see why they wouldn't, it's a special year for them and it would make sense.

Secondly I would expect it to be in either Vancouver or the US this time around

There's no way they're going to film one of the early shows of the tour, so the western U.S. shows won't be filmed.

It's an interesting question. The last tour not to feature a video release would be...Love Town? I'd be shocked if they don't. But that may just be precedent talking.

all the tours from Zoo TV on have had at least 1 concert. War had LUABRS of course. R&H kinda counts as JT but it's not just a full concert.

They Filmed Zoo Tv in Australia, despite AB being a hugely European inspired album!

True, but it seems to me that with U2 getting all nostalgic about all of this we will see the DVD filmed somewhere southwestern.

For those of us wanting a Blu-ray/DVD Release of TJT 2017, history IS on our side in that case. It's not like U2 to NOT document a tour of theirs on video for the fans. It doesn't even matter where they choose to shoot it, as their general practice for the most part has been to shoot very late in the tour when the shows are at their possible best. Take PopMart (Mexico City) and ZOO TV (Sydney) for example... That said, if they don't shoot in Dublin, where they said the origins for The Joshua Tree are there, I would be disappointed.

late in the tour means his voice is prob. failing.

I too think they will film a show- though planning and logistics will probably be the biggest factor regarding location. What I really hope is that the director does not film it like a music video (like some said Vertigo Chicago and Rosebowl 360 was shot) whereby the shots jump around frenetically without showing the band/stage.

Agreed. More footage of the stage and visuals, less intentially jerky camera shots. The band needs to get Ned O'Hanlon back. Hamish Hamilton doesn't make good concert videos.

Even worst than jerky camera movements on the 360 DVD was the nonstop superimposed shots! The jerky movements on that DVD were far less bad than either Chicago or Boston, sans Vertigo, which I thought was kind of appropriate, given the definition of the word :D

vancouver is deserving of one:

05 tour rehearsals were here (city of blinding lights video was also filmed here) and chicago got the dvd (shows right after vancouver)
09 rose bowl was filmed, again show before us
15 tour rehearsals again for almost a month and tour opened here
17 same as 15

i know itll never happen for a the first show in a tour but one can always hope...

Even if you go back to the original JT tour it was one day after Save the Yuppies and only a few after Denver for R&H.

East Rutherford looks like a good candidate. Close proximity to the largest media centre in the world, two shows for editing, ample practice before committing to tape also a large market that will have a connection with the show. Have U2 ever released Live in New York?

East Rutherford is most likely.

2 shows. In the US. End of leg one so the nerves will be a bit smaller and the show slicker.

That's basically what they did for U23D about a decade ago, filming at a bunch of different Latin American show, piecing them together.

That's true, the Bonnaroo show will be out there professionally filmed, even if it isn't released on DVD.
