Title: Where Should U2 Film The DVD?
Post by: jick on July 10, 2009, 08:12:31 AM
I guess the topic says it all.  I hope you guys also put reasons on why you feel the DVD should be in that location.  The last poll we took, the post-Zooropa song we wanted U2 to debut live that won it was Electrical Storm and they ended up playing it.  Who knows, they might just read our polls again and film the DVD in the city that wins this poll.

Cheers,

J

I would say Seattle, but they're not playing Seattle this tour =P
I don't think they will film their tour DVD at a city they've already made a DVD at. Washington DC might be kinda neat.

I voted for two-night city in the US. Seems like a good time in the tour. They should be really tight by then. And they have a first show to test everything out with. I'm going to both NJ shows, so that'd be really cool if they filmed there and called it "U2 360: Live from New York."

They won't do Croke Park given the design of the stadium which effectively means they're playing in 270, rather than 360. I believe they filmed the second night of Vertigo at Croke Park, but that footage has never surfaced.

I went for the 3rd-leg option.  Since the expectation is that things will only get better, I think U2 should put off the DVD shoot.  And, fingers crossed, I will happen to be in the audience.   ;D

Post by: markreed on July 10, 2009, 02:57:59 PM
By the time we get to the third leg, I bet that the oddities from the first part of 360 will have been ironed out in favour of more older warhorses. Get the tour on the opening European leg : just like the last two 'opening leg' tour DVD's have. The world does not need a fourteenth concert recording of New Years F***ing Day.

L.A., for the simple reason that it's an easier shoot with so many sources of equipment at their disposal, and it'll be less likely to drive them nuts. They can also hang out at Edge's place afterwards. If they don't like the result they can shoot in Vancouver (another t.v. and film hotspot) and then take a working vacation to do some editing.

Please no more US dvds. As someone who lives in the US and has seen the band overseas, our audiences (no matter what one says about how "great" their hometown crowd is) are usually too liquored up from their little pre-show parties or just too busy texting and letting everyone know they're at the show, in order to feel important, to put any kind of energy into the show. Just compare Milan's audience to Chicago's "I'm just gonna stand here motionless while they play anything except Sunday bloody Sunday/Streets/BD/Vertigo" attendees. Even the GAs sucked over here last time. Now maybe, if people stopped treating shows as a reason to ingest copious amounts of over-priced beer and use it as a "night out," things would change.

U2 3D was a great movie, no question about it.  But it was not released on DVD in 3D format.

It would be great if U2 could release a movie on 3D format in DVD (meaning the buyer is supplied with glasses), so he/she can have the full effect at home in their home entertainment systems.

Miley Cyrus did this with the "Best of Both Worlds" DVD, so I am thinking maybe U2 can follow suit since someone came up with that brilliant idea.

Post by: SirGazzatron on July 11, 2009, 05:32:34 AM
hi all!

I picked the 3rd leg option... usually the best time. If you think about it, the best setlists usually come out them shows as most know.
Zoo TV - Live from Sydney was filmed right at the end of the Zoo TV tour (Zoomerang leg), and so included Zooropa songs. It was a great mix match i reckon. oh and its my hometown haha

Also, the last Vertigo leg in Australia & South Pacific featured I think the best setlists out of the tour... We got to see Windows, Saints and a great version of Kite. check out the bootlegs if you can. These concerts were special due to the delay and postponing of them etc. Everyone wanted and needed the shows (band and fans alike) I would say.

Generally, they should wait, but I'm all for them doing two releases (like Elevation- Boston & Go Home- Slane). haha

Hmmm, thats my thoughts anyway.
Gaz  ;D

I vote Zagreb, for it would be "exotic"...  at least as far mainstream releases go:-) I generally prefer European crowds at U2 gigs, also the age average would possibly be younger and the audience better looking.

Also some friends of mine might be in the front rows then.

And if the stadium should crumble and dissappear into the Adriatic sea... (I know it's a bit further soutwest...) ;D

This pre-packaged saccharine crap is an important part of the industry. It's smart to keep an eye on the trends and what is popular. Just because the music isn't very good doesn't mean that we should shove them aside and ignore them, they have importance in the culture and industry that should be noted by music enthusiasts.

Look, you can pay attention all you want,I choose not to de-value myself with devalued music (along with the fans with no taste or musical knowlegde).
Since when has U2 been interested in trends? That means they would have gone grunge on Zooropa, hair metal on the JT, and made another HTDAAB with NLOTH?
This "industry" has had copious amounts of trash talked about it, from top to bottom, by the band and McG. " Music enthusiast" is the type of person who says "Oh I listen to everyone," which denotes, no taste.  If more people shoved crap aside and ignored it, the record companies would stop pouring it out. alas, If you want to put credence into everything every teeny-bopper and their Oxycodone/Xanax addicted middle-aged former teeny bopper parents buy, you are free to do so. Just don't complain when ALL of the good stuff disappears.

Face it, for bands like U2 the industry is DEAD. Metallica are even going  without a label for their next release most likely.

That crap is important ... insomuch as it props up lesser selling artists. But yes, if the art itself isn't very good, then it has no importance and is just product being shifted like musical Baked Beans. 7p a can.

U2 3D used a different type of 3D technology than the Hannah Montana movie.  I believe U2's movie was all in 3D while the Hannah Montana movie wasn't. 

Anyway back on topic. 

I picked the third leg of the tour they should film.  By then they should have everything in full motion. I think they should film the DVD in South America.  The crowd is really into the music and you can see the band feed off of that energy.  Just keep that Hamish guy from directing it and it should be a good DVD.

It's got such a bizarre shape, I just can't see it on DVD. http://www.baseballpilgrimages.com/american/skydome.jpg but then again, it would look awesome with the CN tower in the background. We'll just have to wait and see... All I know is where ever their filming, it will be a in multiple night city.

Face it, for bands like U2 the industry is DEAD. Metallica are even going  without a label for their next release most likely.

Since when is U2 interested in trends? Seems to me they had an Apple commercial and a U2 edition iPod going on. A 3D concert movie. U2 is interested in what's popular and what's happening, but they certainly don't blindly follow trends (as you pointed out with your grunge / hair metal etc statement)

I'm not sure I totally understand your statements of personal antagonism here; I don't listen to Avril or Miley or any of the aforementioned crappy artists. The point I'm trying to put across is that in today's failing music business, it's unwise to overlook what other popular artists are doing that is working, even if you dislike the music or the artist themselves. That doesn't mean that everything they do is the new bible. It's like how Ford makes really crappy cars, but the other auto makers still keep an eye on them to see what they're up to, because it may be relevant. I'm trying to come up with a better analogy here, but it's almost midnight so I think I'll set my Hannah Montana clock radio and go to bed.

I would think it would be one of the nicer/huger/round stadiums.. (look at all the current stadium images on the official page to get an idea).
ie, see New York/Washington (plus it's a decent 3 months into the tour.)
Croke Park is kind of missing one side.
Most decent sized artists play Wembley and film shows there. Doubt U2 will take that standard approach.

Plus it will definitely be at a stadium where at last 2 shows are held.
It is all dependent on how much time is needed to develop it into the DVD and released before Xmas. Doubtful it would get released at some random time during the year.
So, otherwise Xmas 2010, the show filmed during a gig in that year.

How many friggin' versions of Beautiful Day, Mysterious Ways, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Angel of Harlem, Stuck In A Moment, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, MLK, Walk On, Where the Streets Have No Name, One, and With or Without You, do we really need?

If that's the case, why pay for a ticket to go see them live?

So far I haven't bought tickets to the 360 tour.  Too much redundancy.

Assuming it's Europe which would be ready for Christmas market, then there are really only a few options.

First off, it will more than likely be a city that they play twice, for a two night shoot,so that leaves:
Amsterdam, Dublin, Gothenburg,Zagreb, Wembley

Dublin's definetely out, as it's empty at one end due to standing only Terraces.

I'll go for either Wembley or Amsterdam.

Please no more US dvds. As someone who lives in the US and has seen the band overseas, our audiences (no matter what one says about how "great" their hometown crowd is) are usually too liquored up from their little pre-show parties or just too busy texting and letting everyone know they're at the show, in order to feel important, to put any kind of energy into the show. Just compare Milan's audience to Chicago's "I'm just gonna stand here motionless while they play anything except Sunday bloody Sunday/Streets/BD/Vertigo" attendees. Even the GAs sucked over here last time. Now maybe, if people stopped treating shows as a reason to ingest copious amounts of over-priced beer and use it as a "night out," things would change.

Having attended shows on both continents, I'd have to concur. If you want to hear an exception, listen to the boot from 4/20/01 in San Jose-loudest audience I've ever heard at at U2 show (have seen 17 since 83')

Well I wish they did it on the second night of Barca, I was there & it was truly AMAZING. Me & My friends have saved up to do a U2 Road Trip, I was there in Milan & Paris, those nights were truly amazing. I doubt they'd wanna do it in Paris because you couldnt hear bono sing thats how electric the crowd was. Since they have done a dvd in Ireland I doubt they do it there. So since I'll be at Wembely I definatley think they should do it there.


WEMBELY
WEMBLEY
When they play @ wembley the footballing chants will be going of because thats the week the PL starts.

I dunno, how many versions of 'The Unforgettable Fire', 'Ultraviolet', 'No Line on the Horizon', 'Magnificent', 'Unknown Caller', 'Moment of Surrender', 'I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight', 'Get on your boots', 'Electrical Storm' and 'Breathe' do you have already?  :)
