Trivia

The show was recorded over U2's two night stand in Chicago on 9 May and 10 May 2005. The May 10th gigs can be easily spotted when fans are shown holding up signs wishing Bono a happy birthday, as his 45th birthday was May 10th, and other songs don't show fans in those vicinities holding any signs.

Vertigo 2005 : Live from Chicago
5 September 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Vertigo 2005: Live from Chicago (sometimes titled Vertigo '05: Live from Chicago) is a concert film by Irish rock band U2, showcasing two concerts recorded in Chicago, Illinois during band's 2005 Vertigo Tour. The film was released as a DVD later in the year (see 2005 in music) on 14 November by Island Records in most parts of the world and was released in the United States a day later by Interscope Records. The DVD was released as a one-disc standard edition and a deluxe edition with a second disc featuring bonus material and a documentary. It was the first of three concert films from the tour. The DVD was a worldwide success, topping the Music DVD charts in eleven regions and has received certifications in over seven areas. As of January 2007, it has been the band's best-selling DVD, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and has sold over a quarter of a million copies in the United States. The two concerts featured on Vertigo 2005: Live from Chicago were recorded and performed at the United Center in Chicago on 9–10 May 2005. The footage used in the DVD was shot live from two nights of the band's four concert stop in Chicago. The concert on May 10 was Bono's birthday, providing a ceremonious backdrop to the concert. Critical reception: -Vertigo 2005 received generally favourable reviews. Cammila Albertson of Allmusic felt that the concert DVD accomplished its purpose, but that the lighting or camera movements in some scenes did not capture the moments as well as they should have. Despite an overall positive review, John Murphy of MusicOMH felt that most fans do not need to purchase the DVD if they have Elevation 2001: Live from Boston or U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle, Ireland. Mike Shiller of PopMatters felt that the concerts were well-filmed but that the DVD was typical. John Cruz of Sputnikmusic felt that the band is one of the best live rock acts, but that too many songs from Achtung Baby were used and it was not a great concert.
