I was at rose bowl. It was a great concert. There was lots of energy due to the number of people attending. If there weren't as many people, I don't think it would have been the DVDs as many other places had more magical concets, with more U2 moves(bringing people on stage, etc) Never understood why breathe was made a bonus track.

I was there too.  Awesome show.  Incredible venue, no stadium on that tour was more beautiful than the Rose Bowl.

Only complaint is how scripted it was, and all of Bonos talking and celebrity call outs (much of it edited out from the DVD) really killed the pace is several parts.  Song sequencing also questionable.  But as a venue?  Best I have ever attended, by far.

Most of the big American cities and London suffer from the same we will sit back and you entertain us vibe from reserved seen it all before crowds.

Would be good to see U2 swerve yet another US show dvd release in favour of an Italian show or another Latin country.

I'd heard all this stuff about Italian, Spanish/Portuguese and Latin American crowds being better and seen it in videos but it REALLY doesn't hit you until you're actually there. I'd definitely love them to go that route - though I  think podiumboy is onto something when he notes that they may well want it out for Christmas and that could mean a US show.

NYC makes sense.  They should really offer downloadable shows (video and audio) to fanclub members for a few bucks a piece.  Would be a great souvenir.

I was at rosebowl too and agree it was good, but watch some of the pro shot popmart and even vertigo shows from St America... Or vertigo from Milan. No contest for nuts.

Right about the wanting it to be out for Xmas thing though.

I found the rosebowl crowd similar to Australian crowds. Pretty good, but a little self conscious.

What I want: Amsterdam (Dutch crowds are always among the loudest. Bono always acknowledges that), Turin (same thing for Italians, they are mad!) or Barcelona.

What I think we'll get: NY.

Right on ! The Dutch are full of energy and love to make it a party. Not just with U2 bye the way. The Italians are just as passionate i hear.

I'm surprised nobody bought up having two DVD's one in the US and one in Europe or South America like on the elevation and vertigo tours.

I was at a Best Buy store over the weekend and casually perusing the music aisles.  Looks like Rush has released a multi-concert Blue Ray DVD box set... it had 5 or 6 different shows from different periods.  Price was about $110 USD.

I'd love U2 to do something like this.

Urgh. US crowds on a DVD does not an incredible package make.
With all due respect to my American friends, I have to agree with Briscoe here. No comparison with Dutch, Italian, Belgian, Spanish and Latin American crowds.

That being said, with 8 shows at Madison Square Garden, you should have the best chance to have a diverse audience with fans coming to the concerts from all over the globe, at the height of the summer vacation season.

Would love them to record a Glasgow show especially at the new Hydro as nobody does it better than a Scottish crowd. I remember seeing Adam walk off after a gig at Hampden and just looking back and saying WOW.

I think it's Montreal, too. They haven't yet taped a show in Canada and by all accounts the Montreal crowds were fantastic on the last couple of tours. And why else would Montreal get 4 shows and Toronto only 2?

If they follow previous patterns for arena videos, they'd use a city that has at least 4 shows, especially if there are two distinct Innocence and Experience shows.
