U2 conquer Boston
8 December 2001 | by masterstylisticSee all my reviews

U2 prove once again that they are the loudest and largest band on the face of the earth. No film could ever justify the energy and emotion of a live U2 show, but if ever one could come close... that one would be the Elevation in Boston DVD. Make sure you watch it on a large screen with full surround sound and sub-woofer action for full effect!!

Ripping open with "Elevation", check out the hidden track on DVD 1 to watch the entire song from Bono's perspective via the bono-goggles-cam. As the lights flash and dim down to introduce "Beautiful Day", U2 pour out their souls into an awesome concert full of emotion and good old rock and roll. Watch as Edge looses his pick during "Gone", then looses it on his guitar by throwing it onto the floor in disgust - as anyone would trying to play a hard solo with bare fingers. Only disappointment is the non-existent track "One" - simply one of their best tracks in not on the DVD.

A definite must have for all U2 fans, and a must-see for everyone to appreciate U2 throwing down an awesome performance.

Cheers!
