A Sept. 1, 2001, concert at Ireland's Slane Castle is the basis for the upcoming DVD release "U2 Go Home." Due Nov. 18 via Interscope, the title finds the band performing 19 songs in front of more than 160,000 people in its homeland. The show was one of two at the outdoor venue that marked the close of the band's Elevation world tour in support of 2000's "All That You Can't Leave Behind."
Three audio selections on the DVD offer the music in PCM Stereo, DTS and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound Aspect ratio 16:9. The DVD also features a documentary on the making of the band's 1984 album "The Unforgettable Fire," which was recorded at Slane Castle. The feature has been remastered for this release.
In addition, the DVD acts as a DVD ROM that includes a U2 calendar, screensavers and Web links, as well as a "Spincam" feature that provides the viewer an interactive, 360 degree view of three songs from the concert.
"U2 Go Home" continues the veteran band's tradition of concert films that began with 1983's "Under a Blood Red Sky," shot at Colorado's dramatic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The theatrical documentary/concert film "Rattle and Hum" followed in 1988. The band has also released "Zoo TV: Live From Sydney" (1994), "Popmart" (1998) and last year's "Elevation Tour: Live From Boston."
U2 is working on its next studio album and is expected to tour next year, according to sources.
