Best Buy to Release Boston DVD EARLY!!!!!!!!

Best Buy apparently has some type of marketing arrangement and will
begin selling the Boston DVD & VHS on Tues., Nov. 20th (a full 2
weeks earlier than other stores!)

From www.atu2.com:

ELEVATION HOME VIDEO UPDATE: In North America, the official and full
release date of the Elevation Tour 2001: U2 Live in Boston home video
is December 4th. BUT ... through what we assume is an exclusive
marketing arrangement, Best Buy stores will be selling the DVD and
VHS exclusively a full two weeks earlier, beginning on November 20th.
(You may remember Best Buy being listed early on as one of the tour
sponsors in an official news release.) In the UK/Europe, the video is
still listed with a November 26th release date. And there are no such
exclusive pre-sales with any particular retailer that we know of.

Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For some reason I thought that they had always been saying it would be released on Nov. 20th. Whatever. I need to find a Best Buy.

Here in Canada I think it has always been the plan to have it released on November 20th, and I don't even think we have Best Buy's here.

Awesome! I love Best Buy, and now even more so. As far as I know, they're mostly in the Western and Central US, but I guess they're expanding into the South and East coast. Try BestBuy.com if you want to find a store nearby. Our Canadian friends may have to drive to Michigan to find one.

it is scheduled for december 4th release on future shop's web site. we don't have best buy but future shop has recently been taken over by best buy so i wonder if the deal will carry over to canada and future shop will get the disc(s) early.

Anyone hear anything about a special U2 CD being given away on the 23rd at Best Buy? So far I have heard that Best Buy will open early on the 23rd (7am at my store). One rumor I heard said they would be giving a U2 CD away as people came in the store. When I called my Best Buy yesterday I was told you would get a special CD with the purchase of the DVD, but only on Friday and there would be a limited number so I should get there early. Went to Best Buy last night and my husband was told that there was no CD giveaway, that they were re-releasing the Best Of with the B Sides at a special price, but then he said something about a special CD, not the B sides that you could buy. I just checked the Best Buy site and can't find any information about a "special" CD at Best Buy on Friday. Anyone know the real story? I really want to buy the DVD today, but I will wait until Friday if buying it will get me an extra U2 goodie. HELP!
