It is inevitable that NLOTH or whatever they will call this tour will be filmed and released on DVD as they have for almost every other tour.

Which city should have the honor and why?

The rumor is apparently Poland for this tour.

I'm sorry but Canada.  For supporting U2 for a million years and never living up to the reputation of the USA....

They did film the video for COBL in Vancouver, but we need a whole DVD!!

The rumor is apparently Poland for this tour.

Well we'll know on Monday if they are playing Poland, it's a possibility they won't play there as they have only played there twice ever, and it was skipped on the Elevation tour. In addition to this, the stadiums there are possibly too small, the largest being under 50,000.

indicate that only large stadiums will be used, so Poland may not make the cut.

I'd go for Wembley Stadium London, it's their first opportunity to play there since it was completed after the last tour.

Good point about Wembley! Last time was smaller (Twickenham Stadium), but incredibly convenient for this little fan who only really lived down the road from there at the time. ^^;;

Assuming they release a DVD before next Christmas, then it will be more than likely a  European show. It takes several months to edit and produce a concert DVD, the previous two -  Boston was filmed in June 2001, released in Deceober 2001, Chicago was filmed in May 2005, released in November 2005. Leaving it to one of the US shows, it won't get filmed until late August/early September at the earliest, which will mean it unlikely to be ready for the Christmas market.

The European DVD location options will be revealed next Monday.

Vertigo should've been filmed in Vancouver.

I'd love to see another another DVD from Dublin

If they'll play the Feyenoord stadium in Rotterdam, than I hope they'll put that on film. Beautiful stadium, beautiful crowd. They've played there already 7 times. But if they choose to play Amsterdam, than they should pick another country .. Barcelona.

The rumor is apparently Poland for this tour.

I doubt it... they don't always play there... and if they do then they will only play one show there max (i'm assuming).
For DVD releases they record the show over at least 2 nights to get the best possible bits for the dvd.
