The Fly video from Boston-AMAZING!

If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?!?!
You can download it here: http://www.u2france.com/
It's simply amazing, the boys were in fire, especially Bono!
He was running like a maniac around the heart, he jumped into the crowd, his voice held such passion, he run into the screen like a fly....You gotta see it!
You can also down load Kite and Elevation.

Yes Mariana, its really amazing, my fave until now, I mean, from the 3 ones they have there. I was talking with a dear friend yesterday about this video. I have always loved The Fly, I think the song had its reborn on this tour.

I can only imagine how it is in the DVD... Too bad I dont have a DVD player, but maybe Ill buy myself one as a Christmas present.

Yeah, I don't know why they put them on Realplayer but it's a nice teaser until the DVD is released.

Maria Teresa, The Fly is my favorite of the 3 too.
If Santa doesn't get you a DVD player, I'll make you a tape.

Some really awesome performances there. The Fly has just been spectacular on this tour. I remember feeling really bummed that it didn't make the cut on the PopMart tour but in retrospect it really profited from a break. I actually like the Elevation version better than the ZooTv version which is sort of amazing.
Onto another subject; What do you all think of the direction of the dvd? How does this presentation of live U2 compare to Rattle & Hum, ZooTv Live in Sydney, PopMart in Mexico City and Under a Blood Red Sky?

MP

p.s.- Anyone know if and when U2France will post more cuts from the dvd?

Mariana, thanks for your offer, youre too kind, lets see what happen

Mathew, it seems that they will. They have a poll there: What would be the next track (video) u would like us to put on line from the Concert gig ?

Right now Bad has more votes, 18,8%, so its most likely to be the next one.

The FLY is amazing from Boston. Bono is so energized, he's going crazy. I can't wait for the DVD...or a better quality video Yes...I just can't wait. FULL blast

Yup! That video kicks a whole lot of ass!! I really liked the direction, too. Whole lot of energy going on, and for people who thought the U2 show didn't have much special effects or whatever.. ha!

i desperately want a better quality video of this, as it's annoying skipping over so many frames due to realplayers horibleness. but at least it's better than nothing.

If the quality of the video were much higher Polygram might be tempted to step in and squash U2France for hosting the clips. The quality of RealPlayer is so iffy that the clips just serve as an appetizer. I for one
can't wait to get my hands on this dvd.

You got a good point MAP, Polygram might not be very happy with this release as it's.
I can't compare the Boston DVD to the other videos until I see the real thing, but I think it might be better than all the rest.

Maria Teresa, just let me know.

Does anyone know if it will also be released on video? We don't have a DVD player. We were at all four Bosotn shows, and can't ewait to see it. What ever happened to the HBO broadcast? Did we miss something, or hasn't it been on?

I recall hearing a few months ago that no deal could be made with HBO for a broadcast, and that U2 was looking for other networks to broadcast it. Haven't heard anything since then.

Ok, I have a question, what is that blurb about walking into a sports hall in the beginning of the clip? Is this just a little blurb he made up for this tour, or is it taken from something? I like it.

Bono did a little adlib at the beginning of all the performances of the The Fly.. some of them were mostly the same, others were a little different.. I think they were all Bono-originals though.

About the whole copright thing.. the show was broadcast all over various countries and will be broadcast in more soon.. so polygram would be foolish not to suspect people to tape it and distribute that.

I don't understand -- where exactly on their web site is this clip? Seem to be only two pages to the site, and I didn't see "The Fly" anywhere.

Just to add some info on the upcoming DVD, some people from my list here have already watched the DirectTV broadcast and they said it's truly amazing, although it's an expensive pay-per-view. One guy said he watched the concert 7 times yesterday. It's going to be broadcasted until October 13th.
I'm green with envy, but oh well, I don't have DirectTV.
