Title: Joshua Tree 2017 Blu Ray Release? Thoughts?
Post by: shorne on May 14, 2017, 08:07:09 AM
Here's my hope:

I'd love to see a  FULL show- hopefully from an outdoor gig late in the tour when the band has congealed and the songs and rants evolved... and hopefully the bonus material will be made up of other tracks played on the tour but that weren't in the track listing for the featured show.  Also, a weblink for a downloadable audio version of the tracks. 

Maybe also throw in Outside It's America and whatever other Joshua Tree era material they can pack onto a second disk... including the awful godfather themed MTV commercial.  LOL  DO IT!!!! DO IT ALL!!!!  Let's party like it's 1987!

Blu Ray and UHD 4k release.  This is the first tour since 1984 that I cannot attend, so outside of seeing video clips from peoples phones and such, I want a proper filmed release to come out.

I think it'll happen. Maybe Paris again

Of course they'll make a blu ray...because if they don't, well, I'll just quit.

That would be the third U2 concert DVD filmed in Paris. They'll most likely film a southwestern U.S. show to fit the theme of the album, or Dublin, if they are even playing there. I don't know, haven't looked into the dates since they were first revealed.

I'd love it if they chose London this time around, but part of me thinks that's unlikely. It has to be a America show this year. My guess is one of the East Rutherford shows

or Rome. London would make sense because it is a large market, they have a strong media presence and U2 have a personal history attached to it.

It would be very cool to see U2 in Rome, good pick.

I'm going to the Rome gig in July and Italians are very passionate about U2 (and just about everything else LOL).I went to the Rome concert on the 360 Tour in 2010 and it was probably the loudest U2 gig I've ever been to, so I'd love to see a Blu-Ray release of that show.I can't wait  :D

If they want to go super political, which they might, they'll pick the D.C. show.  Which I would be happy about, because that's the one I'm going to.

Drop all the political talk and make it a total  U2 concert leave the politics for the politicians .Causes like aids fine.

no not late in the tour his voice will be worse but yes they will do this. i doubt theyll double dip the special features from the JT 25th DVD but the godfather thing would be funny as an easter egg or something.

Good shout. Nothing more divisive than politics. Maybe they should be trying to bring people together, rather than contributing to the problem.

Regarding the blu ray. unlikely that I would be interested..

The only one I've ever returned to is zootv in Sydney. This is where they were at their peak in my opinion. It's the little things that grate on me nowadays, from their more recent tours...

Apologies to whomever this is likely to offend, but bono just doesn't look great these days.

I don't need the visuals of him performing cheesy rock postures with his dodgy transplant peroxide hair or whatever style he happens to be supporting (typically looks like he's wearing a dead badger) over the top of versions of wowy, one, NYD, MW Pride that sound slightly weaker than the previous tour, from a vocal perspective at least.

Yes the band sounds tighter, and Adam is notably a better player, but it saddens me to see the overall live versions deteriorate.

The crowd participation on the political themes, like the mask wearing, the staged fans joining them.. it just makes me want to stick zootv back on.

For these reasons I'm out.
However, actually watching in person is a slightly different story, and the above sins are less noticeable, probably because you're caught up in the moment.

Is London really that much of a special city for them, it's kind of sandwiched inbetween Dublin and America, would love to see them do a tour DVD in my home city

bass slap, I'll have you know Bono's transplants are done by the best in the business, because of course Bono can afford it. Wish he'd opt for a more natural short style like he had on 360 tour.

Anyway, of course I bet they'd put out a DVD. Easy cash grab and "commemorative memorabilia" for each tour they do.

Even though I'm sure the tour has American politics themes, I bet they'd choose a European city (Rome, London, Dublin etc all mentioned above).

Americans are just too noisy. Dudes and their "WAWOO!", chicks and their screeching. Doesn't make good filming backdrop noises. Another bonus of picking a European city where English is not first language is that the crowd will react less strongly to whatever Bono is saying on stage. The cheer for the songs only. Maybe they think European girls look nicer, idk.

Yes, I know there are DVDs of Boston 2001 and Chicago 2004.

You're right skelter, on all of your points.
Knowing that bono has the best transplant in the business certainly puts me off having one.
I take the edge hat option every time  ;)

I think it's obvious that it will be the New York Shows at Metlife Stadium.
It's an album about america, so it will be a show in american at the end of the leg, when they are really into it. And at the Metlife Stadium they have two dates for the cut.

Home version of a tour? Let's see:

War: Yes
UnFire: No
TJT: Yes (though it was years later)
Love Town: No
ZooTV: Yes
PopMart: Yes
Elevation: Yes (twice)
Vertigo: Yes
360: Yes
I+E: Yes

I'd be shocked if it isn't under the tree Christmas morning.

exactly. i dont get why people question whether or not there will be a dvd/bluray release each tour.

and there were 2 Vertigo shows if you count the concert dvd from U218 Singles.

It's an album about America, so The NJ shows or the D.C. one seem most likely.
