ZooTV - Australia
Popmart - North America
Elevation - Europe
Vertigo - North America, South America & Europe
NLOTH - Why not somewhere in Asia, maybe? Hong Kong, perhaps? Tokyo? Maybe even Johannesburg or Tripoli, Libya...that would give 'em an opportunity to do a shoot in Africa.

#@!



Then full list of U2 official DVD's released, which contain extensive live concert footage  is:

War Tour - North America (Denver)
Joshua Tree Tour - North America (various locations)
Zootv - Australia
Popmart - Mexico
Elevation 1- North America(Boston)
Elevation 2 - Ireland(Slane castle)
Vertigo 1 - North America(Chicago)
Vertigo 2 - Milan(about half the gig)

NLOTH : Think it's time for a European gig, like Germany, Spain or the Netherlands. It appears that the outdoor shows are going to be very different from the indoor shows, so that says to me they will film some of them and release one. Timing wise ,it would need to be filmed in the early part of the summer to guarantee a release by the year end. The previous 2 tours were filmed in the early part of the first leg partly to get a release for the Christmas market.


I've never seen a Vertigo show live from Milan dvd... is that an official release? Never even heard of it...

Speaking as a SoCal resident myself, LA is probably the worst possible place, the crowds are pretty lame

My guess it will by NY if they film one this year but I think they will probably wait until 2010 when they start up again.

Maybe a very energetic city in Europe:  Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Rome.

And in North America, it could be upstate in New York or Canada.

personally if they filmed the New York shows I would die, because I'll be there and I can watch it over and over and over in professional quality.


I'm also hoping for New York, even though it's technically New Jersey. After Boston and Chicago, it is New York's turn.

I bet the atmosphere in two Zagreb concerts will be absolutely fantastic. Croatian fans were waiting for a long time for a chance to see U2 live. It wouldn't be a surprise if they decide to film the show in Zagreb. Just because they CAN!  :D

My vote for Zagreb!

I am so exicted for the concert!!  ;D

Nielsen do you need a pat on the back?  ;)

Maybe Zagreb, who knows, this will be the first time they play there.

If it is in the US at all, it would probably be New York. That is a good stadium and there are two nights. I agree that it will  probably be a location were there are two nights scheduled. Even as a Yank, I must say I hope it is filmed overseas. The American DVDs can not compare to the ones shot abroad. Where ever they do it, I just hope that Hamish Hamilton (Boston, Chicago, Slane Castle) does not direct.

My gut is telling me Dublin. The best concert, and I know most people will agree, was Slane Castle. Raw emotion, best crowd ever. Also because they never intended to release it. It was originally for personal use only.

American crowds suck in comparison to European crowds. Canadian crowds on the other hand...Vertigo should have been the Vancouver gig they recorded the week before, LEAGUES better then Chicago.

Wembley is over used. Muse, Foo Fighters, Coldplay (rumored), U2 will be different.  Dublin, Toronto and one more in South America or Oceania

They'll be recording a closed intimate gig in my kitchen. I'll be providing the coffee for Adam, beer for the other lads, and the DVD "extras" will have Adam cooking sausages, eggs and chips ("fries" to you Americans!! :) ) during the interval.

Is this included in part of my package when I stay with you daveyg?

IMO the US shows filmed are not a patch on the European ones, not to mention ZooTV from Sydney.

The atmosphere at Milan/Slane is just so much better than the Boston/Chicago DVDs it's not funny.

So please, don't film a show in the US.

I'll go for somewhere like Zagreb or Berlin...
