Story & preview: Jack Foley
FILMED on September 1, 2001, U2 Go Home is the first ever
release to feature U2 playing to a home crowd, in Ireland.
Following an 80 date sell-out world tour, U2 headed home for
two extraordinary outdoor shows at Slane Castle, in Ireland, where
the band played to a total of over 160,000 people. This homecoming
concert will be released on DVD by Universal Island Records on
November 17, 2003.
U2 Go Home charts an emotional return for the band: in 1984 Slane
Castle was the venue for the recording of their landmark fourth
album, an event which was captured in The Unforgettable Fire documentary,
available here re-mastered and re-graded for the first time.
The Elevation shows also marked the 20th anniversary of the band's
first appearance at Slane, supporting another legendary Irish
rock band, Thin Lizzy, at the inaugural Slane Castle Festival.
The DVD includes a bonus track, and DVD ROM special features
include U2 calendar, screensavers and weblinks, plus three songs
shot on 'Spincam', allowing the viewer an interactive, 360 degree
view of the concert.
U2 Go Home is presented in PCM Stereo, DTS and Dolby 5.1 Surround
Sound. Aspect ratio 16:9.
