The release of U2360° at the Rose Bowl couldn’t have come at a better time. Whether by coincidence, synchronicity, or divine providence, I am again holding tickets for a postponed U2 tour (I also had tickets for the Vertigo tour finale in Hawaii which was delayed eight months). So, as I write this I should be standing in the GA line for the June 6th Anaheim, CA, show, but it’s a wonderful consolation to watch the new DVD and offer a few reflections.
On October 25, 2009, I attended the filming of the concert with a group of friends. We ended up with great spots on the floor about twenty feet in front of The Edge. The crowd was in prime U2 form, and the atmosphere was exuberant, so I wasn’t sure how the DVD would compare. Could my 50″ flat screen adequately represent the ethos, emotion, and energy of a front and center live performance?
