"PopMart Live From Mexico City" DVD Release
Monday July 9, 9:00 am ET


SANTA MONICA, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Jul 9, 2007 -- U2 will release a DVD version of "PopMart Live from Mexico City" on September 18, 2007 through Island Records/Interscope/UMe.
Filmed at the Foro Sol Autodromo in Mexico City on 3rd December 1997, "PopMart Live from Mexico City" was directed by David Mallet and first released on video the following year; this is the first time it has been released on DVD.

Described as a sci-fi disco supermarket, the PopMart Tour opened in its "spiritual home," Las Vegas, on 25th April 1997. All trash and kitsch, PopMart introduced a giant mirrorball lemon, a 100ft cocktail stick -- complete with olive, and the works of Lichtenstein, Warhol and Haring, to a live rock audience: a production experience never quite seen before.

Originally filmed on analogue video, the film has been transferred to a digital format with re-graded and cleaned pictures. Great care has been taken to maintain the original look by simply enhancing it with an added degree of sharpness and contrast unavailable when originally filmed. The audio has also been re-mastered and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound.

"PopMart Live from Mexico City" will be available in two formats: a Standard 1-disc format containing the concert, and a Special Limited Edition 2-disc format, the 2nd bonus disc containing previously unreleased live audio and video material, including documentaries, a PopMart tour visuals montage, and DVD-ROM extras.

The full DVD track listing is as follows:

Disc One:

Pop Muzik / Mofo / I Will Follow / Gone / Even Better Than The Real Thing / Last Night On Earth / Until The End of The World / New Year's Day / Pride (In The Name Of Love) / I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / All I Want Is You / Desire / Staring At The Sun / Sunday Bloody Sunday / Bullet The Blue Sky / Please / Where The Streets Have No Name / Lemon (Perfecto Mix) / Discothèque / If You Wear That Velvet Dress / With Or Without You / Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me / Mysterious Ways / One / Wake Up Dead Man

By the time they release it, I'm gonna be bored of it. I think I already am.

Axver 07-09-2007 07:56 PM

Next there will be a correction to this press release, noting that "2007" was actually a typo of "2017".
