U2 I+E Tour documentary coming to HBO in the fall

U2 Concert Tour Special & Documentary Coming to HBO this Fall | Variety
Quote:
U2 and HBO are teaming up for two world premiere specials this fall — a behind-the-scenes documentary and a concert special.

The documentary, bowing on Nov. 7, will offer access to the rock band and the team behind their current iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE world tour, while also featuring interviews with Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.

The concert special will present U2’s Nov. 14 performance from the Bercy Arena in Paris.

“U2 continues to take risks, which has made them one of the most consistently exciting forces in rock’n’roll,” HBO president Michael Lombardo said Thursday. “The one-two combination of this documentary special, followed by the concert, will provide viewers with the ultimate look at this remarkable band behind the scenes and on the stage.”

U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE world tour kicked off May 14 in Vancouver and runs through November.

Both the doc and the performance special will be available on HBO GO and HBO NOW at the time of the cabler’s TV premiere.
The Hollywood Reporter:

The documentary will feature interviews with Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. as well as the supporting cast of Willie Williams, who has created tour concepts for the band for more than 30 years; award-winning designer Es Devlin, newly signed on for this tour; production director Jake Berry; audio director Joe O’Herlihy, executive director Gavin Friday; set designer Ric Lipson and others who bring the tour to life.

The documentary will be produced and directed by Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) and produced by Shannon Dill, with U2 manager Guy Oseary serving as executive producer.

This is a cool way to do it besides just releasing a DVD (like how Rose Bowl was originally live streamed)! At least we now know for sure which show will be filmed.

I was just thinking about how somehow we probably won't be getting this on HBO Canada (that happened to us with "From The Sky Down" on Showtime Canada, it was delayed by 6 weeks IIRC). Then I realised I'll be in England that day anyway. I'm not going for U2, but it's amusing that we're flying home on the 14th when they film in Paris. This is going to be cool to watch when we get home though.

Clearly they are going to announce the 2016 shows as soon as the broadcast's over.

so only one show? I hope they film the rest too for bonus tracks

otherwise you know we'll get Elevation and Ordinary Love in the bonus e-stage slots.

I liked the idea of a show dvd culled from the best/most interesting performances across the entire tour.

I'd like that for a CD, but for a DVD I like the idea of it all being one show. But that's just my preference.

Your caution is absolutely warranted, and I never try to let my hopes get raised with their album releases anymore. BUT, I'm just saying that the timing works in a few ways. And while the Apple thing bit them, i think that having this HBO special, would be a really great way to introduce SOE.

I think that one thing that gets lost on newer fans, where they can more easily write the band off without giving them a chance, is that their looooooong history actually means something and is an integral part of both SOI and SOE.

I think it would be a cool way for them to purge themselves of the Apple hullabulloo and reintroduce/recalibrate themselves with the release of SOE.

But again, not holding my breath.
