who does not care much for, SLANE dvd?

im just seeing if others feel this way.

i would much, much prefer ZOOTV or(pop mart) but zootv for sure.

other than out of control, the rest of the show is alright. i have been watching the cbs slane broadcast and i just skip through 80% of the songs. its a big place but it just does not kick arss.ex rattle and hum dvd kicks big time arss. and i like boston dvd too.

how do you feel.(i know most of you cant wait to get your little hands on this )

oh and they cut out mysterious ways why did edge fuck up the little solo in out of control, it does not sound right
(listen to the album or any earliery version)

why did not you pension for ZOOTV dam you.

rattle&hum is my fave u2 dvd (it kicks arss and bonos voice is perfect)

i want all three... zoo-tv, popmart and slane. i have no problem with the slane show being released 'cause it'll finally give us a complete (almost) elevation show on DVD. yeah they cut out one song, but on the boston dvd they cut out like 6 or 7. but i do agree with you that i'd really like to see a released of the zoo-tv or pop-mart shows on dvd... in fact, i'll go ya' one step further... let's get the UABRS red rocks show on DVD! now THAT would truely rock

Well, I just basically buy everything U2 releases so I'll definitely buy Slane as soon as it is released.

But I do know it is really nothing new, just U2 playing some ATYCLB songs and butchered versions of their back catalogue of songs.

I'd rather have them release UABRS on DVD. Ditto for ZooTV and Popmart. But if they really wanted a hometown crowd, they could have released the Point Depot `89 shows, they were more special and I think they were captured on film.

Cheers,

J

i'd prefer ZooTV and PopMart on DVD, however since i have already seen those shows and not the Slane concert I have no problems w/ Slane coming out on DVD at all.

I'm fine with the Slane DVD. Popmart and Zootv have already been release, if you want them on DVD, you can always make one. I do, however, have an obsession with PopMex so you'll NEVER find me complaining if they release that on DVD.

I'm not extremely pumped for it, considering I already have an Elevation show on DVD. The location of the concert is cool I guess though, I'm sure I'll probably buy it regardlesslly.

I'am excited in that I think Slane II is a better performance than the Boston Elevation DVD. Plus it was a monumental show in U2's career. I would prefer Slane 1 but they didnt have the extra production crew there for that one obviously.

Regarding the back catalog. Zoo TV in Sydney is "suppose" to be released eventually. Rumor has it though that Mexico City Popmart is not going to be released on DVD. Personally, I would rather they release the Santiago 98 or Sao Paolo 98 broadcasts on DVD over Mexico City. I think they are stronger performances and better setlists. But I would take any of the three. In the meantime though you can always get the excellent bootleg DVD's of all three.

If UABRS is ever put to DVD, which I think will happen eventually. My wish would be that they release the entire show. Now THAT would be cool. And if we are really dreaming, how about a DVD of the full uncut final Tempe show from Joshua Tree and/or the Dublin 89 New Years show!! Those would be my ultimate DVDs. Wont happen, but it is feasible as the footage does exist.

you stole the words right out of my mouth, Santiago would be simply amazing. so much more energy and emotion!

i also agree that Slane was a better performance than Boston.

to be completely honest, i didn't get the chills when i watched the Boston DVD, with the exception of the camera located in the middle of the heart, which was missing more songs than the DVD was! watching Boston, i just didn't feel the magic that i felt when i saw the band in chicago, and even Milwaukee. not saying U2 played a bad show in Boston. it's just that the producer didn't do the job right. he didn't capture feeling to be in the crowd well enough.

the boston DVD sucked. never been disappionted by U2 until the release of this performance. the boston performance came of as fake, the slane performance was better, but not by much. glad i didn't go to the show when it came to town.

I'm happy they're releasing it, and I'm still hoping for ZOOTV, UABRS and The UF Collection!

I watched Slane on TV and I can't say it exactly knocked my socks off. I preferred the Boston concert. I'll still probably get it because I'm a completist to the bone.

I totally agree! And while they're at it, release Best Of 1980-1990 Videos on DVD! It's only on VHS, which nobody around here sells anymore, the ones I've seen listed on eBay are the wrong format, and dammit, I want to see the older videos on a format that won't be eaten by the machine!!!

Sorry, didn't mean to go off like that. But that really annoyed me. It would've been better if they'd released all the vids on one 2 DVD set, like Bruce Springsteen did with his, but hey, why do things the easy way?

I completely agree. I'd love to have the older stuff on DVD with maybe even some "extras," but I'll take what I can get. I'll have no problem spending money on this DVD the day it's released.

Don't think I could ever say this. Just my opinion though.

I want the Slane DVD, but there was already an Elevation DVD so I'm surprised they didn't put out something else. Best of 80-90 is a good idea because then the PLEBA girls could make more stills It should include secret and extra things like 90-00!
