Joshua Tree Tour 2017 - Live DVD

Thought I'd start a thread to discuss where we think the live DVD will be for this tour (assuming they release one).

U2 as we all know, always release a live DVD for each tour they do. So what show/location do people think it will be for this tour?

Croke Park seems a good bet.

After seeing the video in here I think its safe to say it will be Dublin:

For what it's worth, there was a HUGE camera up on stage filming the audience just prior to the show in Paris last night. Hadn't seen or heard about it for any other shows.

They have proshot-video's like this from every show, so this video isn't an indication of a Dublin DVD.

The masterpiece of the show is the screen with its stunning visuals, and the screen is at its best when it's dark. In Dublin there was (like most European shows) still too much daylight when the JT-part started. I guess they will use a show where it was already totally dark when Streets started. I would maybe put my money on Rome: amazing crowd, already dark even before the show started, and there were also reports of much more camera's as usual.

The other question is: IF they release a dvd, WHEN will they release it? A release before Christmas would make sense, but it looks like the new album is finished and we can expect it maybe this year, or begin 2018. Releasing an album and a dvd shortly after eachother would be a little bit strange, isn't it?! So maybe they only release the show as an bonus-dvd with the new album (like they did with the Milan 2005-dvd). And maybe the dvd won't contain the full show, but only the JT-part?

They usually take a while to release their concert DVDs, (unironic) 2018 it is. Off the top of my head Rose Bowl 360 took 9 months to be released, and that was after being streamed live on Youtube.

Release was June, so that was a full 6 months.

I'm almost certain there won't be a DVD. Perhaps some footage on a bonus disc somewhere, a la Paris 1987 or Milan 2005.

Why? They've released a DVD of every tour since Zoo TV and this tour has been very successful and well-received, not to mention the visuals are beautiful. They'd be idiots not to release a DVD of the show

Yeah, crazy if they don't - big money maker, and they can hold onto it to not detract form the album. Release ahead of the next tour starting to drum up some ticket sales

They must release a DVD for this tour, it's just their best version of the Joshua Tree album ever!

I think they should have filmed in Phoenix tonight for a DVD release. Full circle 30 years that would have been iconic for the anniversary.
