Concert Special & Documentary coming to HBO (news)
« on: July 30, 2015, 10:31:30 AM »
  • Two HBO specials- one concert, one behind the scenes
  • Behind the scenes will be aired Nov. 7
  • They will be filming the Nov. 14 performance from the Bercy Arena in Paris for the concert film
  • It appears that the concert will be broadcast on Nov. 14, the same day that it's being filmed in Paris (could someone confirm this?)
  • Davis Guggenheim is directing the documentary. He previously worked with Edge on "It Might Get Loud" and U2 on "From the Sky Down"
  • Concert special is by Hamish Hamilton, who directed  “Elevation: Live from Boston,” “U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle,” the “Beautiful Day” documentary, and “Vertigo in 2005: Live from Chicago"

I hope this gets released to DVD, or else I'm going to have to visit my parents and beg them for just a few hours alone with their cable. Probably not gonna happen.

Here's the press release: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I'm very excited for this. Thank god that Hamish Hamilton and Davis Guggenheim are directing. The 360 Rose Bowl show would have been better if Hamish had directed it.

Looks like they won't be filming from multiple cities after all (unless they change things around for the DVD/Blu-Ray).

But I'm very excited for this. Thank goodness I sponge off of my sister's HBO GO account. :D

I'm real excited too! (Added the press release to the original post). I'm glad I have a year promo subscription to HBO- hopefully folks without HBO will have another way to watch it.

Looking forward to the documentary. HBO have a good relationship with sky etc so they may show it and I may get to see it. As for the concert being shot in Paris, I'm a bit concerned. I'd rather they released the best song performances from various cities and threw them altogether on one DVD.

I don't know about the Parisian crowd. Apparently they were boisterous on the last tour which surprised me a tad. We'll see. If anyone's going to Paris, make sure the atmosphere is a good one!

yes! i was just wondering yesterday if the blu-ray of the tour would be out before i see the show in Dallas in 2016. i've avoided videos of the show, but ive seen photos. i've only heard the Roxy bootleg.

For some reason though, this has me concerned that the tour may not extend into 2016.

Perhaps an extended break, album release, then start the tour back up late 2016?

Maybe.

Also, for people without HBO, in November, make sure to download HBO NOW on your smartphone, Apple TV, etc. and take advantage of the 30-day free trial. The press release says that these specials will be broadcast simultaneously on HBO GO and HBO NOW.

Am I the only one who hates Hamish Hamilton's style of directing? Scatterbomb approach! More camera angle changes than F1 in fast forward.

I still think he's better than the guy that directed the Rose Bowl show.
