i totally agree with you L03VIk, the videos they showed on GMA were disappointing. they did not capture the vertigo live show. and i did hear that bono's voice was a lot weaker than most other shows from this tour. i really hope the DVD will have a different mix.

P.S
bono's studio voice is as good as ever.......but he can barely sing live these days (listen to dirty day from zoo tv sydney for comparison - one of best vocal performances of ALL time; and not just by bono!!!!)
He can barely sing live these day?! We must not be listening to the same bootlegs. While his voice was better during ZooTV, this is the best he's sounded since then. I mean, compare songs like Streets or Pride from Vertigo bootlegs to Elevation bootlegs. There's no comparison.

Anyhow, back to the make topic. I was a little confused when I heard Vertigo on GMA. I was at that show, and I really don't remember his voice scratching like that. I've heard a few non-GMA songs from Chicago III, and he was in top form. His voice also sounds great on the 3 Chicago bootlegs (although I think Chicago IV was vocally his weakest of the 4). So, I'm not sure what happened with the GMA performances, but I'm hoping the DVD uses a different audio source.

Dude, enough w. the "proshot". Were you at any of the Chicago concerts? Just forget about ALL of the recordings and listen to the people who were there..all four shows were awesome! I haven't seen the GMA clips, but personally I've always found thse type of clips to be misleading. It's like the "proshot" clips use the soundboard or earpiece recordings which overexaggerate Bono's vocals. IMO, good audience recordings are much better indicators if you want to rate the overall performance.

I think Bono sounds as best as he can. His best voice is gone since min 90's. You have to remember that.
I thought he sounded great for Slane.
I have to agree with you on Boston though.

I was the Chicago 2 show,his birthday. In fact we sat next to one of the cameras that had a dead center shot from the 2nd balcony where we were. Personally I thought Bono sounded incredible. Also watched the GMA clips and to me he sounded just as good. The crowd was incredibly worked up and I think it's going to look great on the dvd! Hope they add the part of everyone chanting happy birthday to him.

Chicago 3 was Bono's birthday, not 2. Chicago 3 is the DVD and it will look and sound just fine. If there is a particular weak part unfortunately they will probebly splice in part of Chicago 2 to even it out. These shows were good performances (although what I heard of Chicago 1, it was one of the weaker Vertigo shows, sounds uninspired and they have a lot of miscues) and the fact that 3 was Bono's birthday will add a festive atmosphere to it.

I just dont think the band was ready to shoot a DVD yet. Seemed like they filmed too early on this tour. They should have filmed one of the stadium shows this summer and an arena show this fall. Would have worked better as they would have the songs down completely. They were still ironing out the way they played songs and the lighting for them in Chicago. That is not a time to shoot the official DVD.

I thought Bono's vocals were OUTSTANDING last night in Boston.

Bono will overdub his parts if they are lacking, he always has...makes it much more enjoyable. If I want a rough honest version of what occured that night...that's what the boots are for.

What do you think?
I think you're totally wrong. If you weren't a fan, you wouldn't have been listening to tons of other boots to be able to compare.

BTW, I was at Chicago III & he sounded great.

It doesn't matter what show was night 1 or night 4. Personally I wasn't there to count the nights. All that matters was that I was at his birthday concert and I thought the band was great. And any true U2 fan will still want to buy the dvd even if some feel that it was too early to do the taping. Who's to say if they waited till later on to do it that something wouldn't happen then to mess it all up? Way I see it if you aren't satisified with it than don't buy it!

IMO it can be better.

Same stuff from Boston and Slane: out of focus, extreme close-ups, objects between the cam and the band etc.

Not that I don't like those DVDs but I think this Tour needs a new shooting style.
In this way it'll be another reason to it be compared to the Elevation Tour.

At least he* didn't use the same effect in "after the flood when the colors came out" LOL.

*edit: [he] = the director

GMA put this together, not the director for U2.

I think they should record in several cities and either choose the best one at the end, or make a DVD with multiple nights. It could either be 7-8 songs from maybe 4 nights (I know that isn't popular with a lot of people), or they could make it a multiple disc set to show the different stage production and setlists in the US, Europe, etc.

Haven't heard the Chicago bootlegs or GMA clips though, so I can't really comment...

You should. Last I checked they were avaliable at u2neophobia.com .

Chicago 4 is a great recording. Although now that Bad->40 has been repeated and UTEOTW has been played a few more times, plus WOWY it's not as amazing as it was at first. Still well worth a listen.
