U2 Releasing Innocence + Experience Tour DVD

One thing is pretty consistent. If there’s a U2 tour, there’s gonna be a DVD. And guess what? It’s coming out soon. Let’s begin with a trailer.

From the official press release:

The concert film captures the groundbreaking tour as it returned to the French capital in December. The New York Times put it like this: “The Paris show that concluded U2’s Innocence and Experience tour was concert as personal memoir, archetypal story, prayer, exorcism and vow of unity.”

The 2.5 hour film, directed by Hamish Hamilton, includes guest performances by Eagles of Death Metal and, on the deluxe version, by Patti Smith, which also features behind-the-scenes footage, additional music videos and live tracks and a tour of the visuals narrated by the band’s lifelong friend Gavin Friday.

“Directing iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE was scary,” says live broadcast director Hamish Hamilton who previously worked with U2 on 2001’s Elevation Tour. “A technical nightmare married with a creative rollercoaster. It challenged everything I knew on so many levels…What blew my mind were the multiple narrative arcs combined with the number of emotional arcs you are taken through as you journey through the show. There’s a lot of good shows out there – but very few great shows.”
