This is the Most Incredible Fan-Shot U2 Concert Footage You’ve Ever Seen

This fan-shot footage taken of a U2 concert at the United Centre in Chicago back on June 28 not only sounds terrific but it’s in 4K.

This is nothing short of stunning. In fact, it’s the best-looking and sounding fan-shot stuff I’ve ever seen. Click over to YouTube for the full tracklisting/setlist. (Via Rob)

And now, a bonus. Michael forwards video of some Rattle & Hum footage that never made the cut. It might be fun to compare and contrast, huh?

  1. Two hours of recording something from one angle doesn’t make for a good “concert film”. Go watch the classic concert movies to see how its done. (Hint: It takes a lot of work and filmmaking craft.)

      Thanks for clearing that up. Without your contribution we might have actually mistaken this for a professional video. Disaster averted!
