Joshua Tree 2017 Tour Video?

Are there any plans to record and release a show?

I really hope so because this is a special show with several very rare songs that would be great to have on an official release.

I would also LOVE if they did a live airing of it ala ZooTV and not pre recorded and edited.

I assume they would want to release a DVD of this show, it's incredible. I haven't heard any stories of them recording any shows during this 1st US leg for a DVD (doesn't mean they didn't). Europe might get another DVD recording, but not Paris, Dublin or London. I can't see any of the 3rd leg US shows getting a DVD, unless they want their DVD to be a 2/3 full stadium in New Orleans or St. Louis. Phoenix would be a candidate, but it does not look like it's on it's way to a sellout or anything resembling that. Not Mexico... Maybe Buenos Aires or Sao Paulo?

Buenos Aires or São Paulo would be cool as you know they will be 100% sold out and the crowds are very animated.

Nothing was announced. Would they record a DVD for a tour this short that doesn't support a new album ?

They have never done this type of thing before, so it's uncharted territory.

It might get "weird" IF the new album comes out in December and the tour ends in October. That would be a tight window to release a tour video before the new album comes out. I say "weird" because releasing an official product unrelated to a new album during a new album promo period is strange.

With that said, why wouldn't they release this? They would sell 500k-1 million copies of this show(IMO). U2 fans would love to have this in their collection given the songs that are included that are not part of any other official release.

South America Footage

Not sure if anything has changed that would prevent such, but in the past South American concerts have often been aired on TV...

Half the Popmart Pro-shots are from South America...

they film every show. I would expect they would cobble together some of the best footage and release it, if they thought they could sell it.

why anyone would want a physical DVD these days is a different question....

To complete collections. I'm like that when it comes to album releases, there is just something about holding the physical CD, looking at the CD art and insert and the smell of it(sounds weird but that new CD smell is unique) that brings me back.

The only tour video I don't have is iE but I will eventually get it.

I only do this with U2 though, everyone else gets digital only treatment!

Because its safer on a physical DVD than a computer which is temporary and can have its hard drive and files erased or zapped in different ways.

All of my music is on physical compact disc or DVD/Blue Ray for videos. I still have all the compact disc that I have been buying since 1988. I don't do digital at all. Except when streaming something off of youtube, all my music listening and music video watching is from a physical product.

Cool thought that will NEVER happen:

We use special codes given to us by U2.com to purchase tickets to shows, so in theory, they know what show(s) we went to.

Since they record every show, how cool would it be if the subscriber gift was a blue ray and digital copy of the show you went to! If you went to multiple shows, then you are given the option of which show you are any and if you didn't go to any or are new, then you get a choice between 3 shows or something.

Yes, there are likely gaps in that idea but at it's core it would be a really cool gift and the ultimate souvenir from the show.

That may have been true about 10 years ago, but considering most things are saved in the cloud these days, yea... barring an Apocalyptic EMP attack, digital purchases are as safe as anything else. And if said attack does happen, we can an all come to your house and watch on your hamster wheel operated entertainment system.

What is this cloud thing you speak of? Sounds like black magic hooey to me.

Love this idea!
