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.
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.
All that they can't leave behind was their visual shows ! (DVD)
Music is the language of feelings, and for me, U2 embodies the best of humanity: Love, Peace, Compassion. Their songs, friendship, dedication are as much proof of this evidence. Who can't be moved by such integrity ?
With this tour, they come back to simplicity: no big screen, no pop extravaganza It's a pity: they were the only ones to deliver this package and it was as much fun as it was truth.
About the music, I am disappointed to hear always the same classic on their DVD, even if all the "unplugged" songs are great: "Wake up", "Desire", "Staring at the sun", "Angel of Harlem"...
But as long as I have those goose bumps: Thanks U2 for giving me such primal feelings!
In bonus, you got a making-of about the song "Pride" 23 years ago at Slane Castle... Even after 3 big records, the band stayed simple (look at their clothes) and their only drive was music not money!!!!
