Depeche Mode prepares for the 101st and final concert of its massive world tour at the Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, California, while a group of fans who won a contest travel to the concert through the United States on a bus.
U2: Achtung Baby offers a previously unobtainable level of insight into the band during the recording of their most dynamic and well respected album. Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos....
First of all, you have Depeche Mode at their live-est ever, performing in front of 30,000 screaming Frenchmen on October 10, 2001.
Second, you get Anton Corbijn's photographic sensibilities, both during the terrific concert film, and during the DVD's literally groundbreaking extras.
The plentiful extras include the visually stunning concert projection films made by Corbijn, candid pre-concert interviews with the band, Martin Gore singing "Surrender" to his dressing room mirror (classic!), and a "choose-your-own angle" version of "Never Let Me Down Again."
