Rumor: Best of 1980-2000 DVD

I found this rumor at atu2.com:

Two sources which we consider reliable have shared the rumor that U2 is planning to release the next "Best Of" compilation during the 2002 calendar year. One source reported the compilation would be released in the first half of the year; the other reported it would be out in the second half of the year. UPDATE: This release is now rumored for November 19, 2002. In addition, it's rumored that U2.com will allow fans the chance to vote this summer for favorite A-sides and B-sides. UPDATE #2: As if that's enough, also rumored for release in late 2002 is U2: The Complete Music Videos 1980-2000 on both VHS and DVD.


How feckin' cool would that be?!

Minus the Red Hill Mining Town video.

Anyway, yeah.. This sounds great! I hope they do it.

that would be great especially if they honestly put on the dvd every video that was released to mtv and other music video stations. there are a lot of freakin U2 videos, ones that probably haven't been seen in years.

i wonder if they would put the live in australia versions of God Part II and All Along The Watchtower from the Lovetown Tour on it.

if... they... do... release... this...

Yeah, sort of....

The video exists but is locked in the vaults of the band and MTV. If I am not mistaken, a rough version was aired on MTV in 87 and has never been seen again. It was supposed to be the 2nd single from The Joshua tree but because Bono could not hit the high notes live it was scrapped. The video was filmed by neil jordan. This is all I know. If something is wrong, please correct me.

Peace.

If they do a complete video collection, they should include the red hill video. I mean, we all know that Bono can't hit the high one's anymore so why keep it locked up. That would make the package.

"Every video ever made for U2......including the ULTRA RARE Red Hill Mining Town video never before seen ANYWHERE!"

Now that would sell copies

Yes yes! You must do it! And while you're at it, get one of those Dolby 6.1 amplifiers too! My parents have that, so everytime I go back home, I take my Boston DVD along cuz it absolutel ROCKS when you play it on that kind of a system. My dad has more fun playing with it than I do, and he's not even a huge U2 fan!

Rats! No wonder I haven't seen it. We didn't get MTV until the early 90s!
