    Hey Y'all. I remember reading that this concert was being released soon. I assume that CBS ran excerpts from the concert as without commercials, it ran 43 minutes. Was excellent. In some ways, better than the "Elevation" from Boston concert. Bono had buried his Dad the day before and it was VERY emotional and the performance reflected that. They actually did "Out of Control" from "Boy" and it sounded great.
    I hope this is coming soon still and it is complete.
    Anyone know any info? The U2.com website only mentions the "Best of..." DVD.

    It was also broadcast in HD. The shots of the crowd and some of the band members closeups were great but it looked like they also had some SD cameras there as well since shots of the whole group did not look nearly as sharp.

    If it was at Slane Castle then the DVD will be coming out early in 2003. I picked up the Best of 1990-2000 DVD here in OZ today. Very nice indeed !!
    Now bring on Popmart & Zooropa concerts [​IMG]
