In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction; this band has endured and thrived. This documentary asks the question why.
U2 perform a rescheduled live show at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France in the aftermath of the November 13 Paris Attacks as part of the final shows of the European leg of their Innocence + Experience Tour.
This film was edited together from seven Latin American concerts (mostly in Buenos Aires) and two shows in Australia, plus a special "phantom shoot" 10-song set performed without an audience to capture close-ups. In addition, some footage was included from a "test" filming that was done in Mexico City (for example, the scene where Bono reaches out to the camera during "Sunday Bloody Sunday"), which was primarily done for the camera crew to learn the show choreography, but was not intended for final use.

In some scenes, U2 are shown for a short period of time playing to an empty stadium. This is mainly due to the fact that U2 had agreed to be filmed playing a show to an empty stadium so they could get close-ups from on-stage. See more »
This movie is so good. Nothing I write here can prepare you for how good it is. I though it was crazy that people were paying more to see this at sundance than they would pay to see the show live, but this is 100x better than being there live. We are Lucky to be able to see this show for $10 when it hits theaters this week.
An independent film using 3-D is a phenomenon that we will start seeing more and more of. This movie makes me want to have 3d in my living room. Can't wait for the new 3d player to hit the home The director is a genius. She had every type of 3-d Camera available to her.
You will be hearing a lot about this film coming up.
