They may do like Taylor Swift did with her 1989 tour - film a show and put it on Apple Music/iTunes or whatever. saves them the cost of manufacturing physical dvds/blurays.

This idea is awful though - if Taylor Swift's marketing team determined there wasn't a market for her hugely successful Red and 1989 tours then the market for concert DVDs must be tiny these days.

I honestly care less about the DVD and more about having a high quality audio rip of the show

People with slow internet who don't stream or download every single thing and who like physical copies with pretty box art.

I don't think people care so much about the medium as the product. It would be really disappointing not to have an officially released pro-shot concert from this tour - whether it is on DVD, Blu-Ray, iTunes, Netflix etc.

Yeah, it would be real disappointing for this tour to be the first since Lovetown without a video release, especially since the visuals on this tour were great and it was a very theatrical show

Netflix is an interesting option. I could see them going that route with an exclusive deal. Probably makes more financial sense for them vs an HBO or a brick and mortar release.

I heard that the first four songs in San Diego were filmed for HBO, my guess is they'll film the rest of the show somewhere in South America and then release it

The rumor is that they did a test film in San Diego of the first four songs for a shoot in Mexico, but it's just a rumor.

I wonder at what point in a tour does U2 typically record a video for release? Earlier? Later? Midway? And what's the determinative factor in deciding where to record?

It would be interesting to know which % of shows in any given tour U2 already completed before they decided to make the vid.

Speaking of HBO, what ever happened with that documentary they made on the IE Tour?

It's on a shelf in Paul McGuinness' basement along with Songs of Ascent, bequeathed to U2Girl in his last will and testament.

Zoo TV was at the very end, PopMart was near the end, Elevation was at the beginning/middle and then the somewhat at the end, Vertigo was at the start and then various shows were filmed, 360 was near the end of the beginning half, I+E was at the end.

Looks like Edge was miming along to the guitar during The Best Thing..... Pretty disappointing.
