U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle, Ireland

is a concert video release by rock band U2 from the European leg of their Elevation Tour. Recorded on 1 September 2001 at Slane Castle on the band's featured stop in County Meath,Ireland, it was released on DVD in November 2003. Although Slane Concerts at Slane Castle are traditionally held once a year, U2 played two concerts. This was the final concert of the first European leg of the Elevation Tour.

The film features the band playing Slane to more than 80,000 people, the second of two concerts played at Slane Castle on the Elevation Tour. The performances were the band's first at Slane since 1981 when they opened forThin Lizzy. Bono had lost his father to cancer several days before the concert. Their first night at Slane was a day after his father was buried. Bono also dedicates "Kite" his father. U2 Go Home was filmed the same day Ireland secured a place in the 2002 FIFA World Cup. The match was shown to the football-crazy Irish crowd at Slane Castle prior to the concert, adding to the already festive air.



U2: Glastonbury 2011

U2 reach back to the early-90s not just with an opening salvo of songs from Achtung Baby but with the frenetic visual overload of the Zoo TV tour. It finds them at their fiercest and most urgent, The Edge wrenching bolts of noise from his guitar during Until the End of the World. One and Where the Streets Have No Name, usually preserved for the finale of their touring set, follow. It's a lean, combative, frontloaded set calibrated to win the unconverted at their first festival show since the 80s. You can't persuade everyone of course, but it's good to see a band this big taking nothing for granted.
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking for closes with a refrain from Moving on Up by Primal Scream, who are headlining the Other stage. In a flamboyant coup de theatre he enlists an astronaut to recite lyrics during Beautiful Day from the international space station. Other memorable moments are generated by the crowd. They take a whole verse of I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, while a field of flags blowing in the night breeze during Sunday Bloody Sunday intensifies the song's martial feel.
If there's a problem, apart from the wretched weather, it's that the opening sprint is never equalled for energy (and, thanks to the wind, volume), though Beautiful Day, Elevation and Vertigo come close. In the encore, after a glittering With or Without You, the sombre Moment of Surrender feels anticlimactic: a big moment for U2's fanbase. They end with Out of Control.


U2 Zoo Tv: Live From Sydney

Zoo TV: Live from Sydney is a concert video release by rock band U2 from the "Zoomerang" leg of their Zoo TV Tour. Recorded on Saturday, 27 November 1993 at Sydney Football Stadium on the band's featured stop in Sydney, Australia, it was released in May 1994 on VHS and Laserdisc, and re-released in September 2006 on DVD. It won the Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video in 1994. The show was also broadcast around the world live on pay-per-view. In 2006, the show was released as the live album Zoo TV Live to subscribers of U2.com.

This was the second of two consecutive concerts in Sydney. The previous night was used as a rehearsal for the video shoot; however, it is now infamous as the only U2 concert ever played without all four band members present. Adam Clayton was bed-ridden and unable to play, and was replaced by bass technician Stuart Morgan. Although on stage Bono cited a virus as the reason for Clayton's not appearing that night, it has since been revealed that Clayton was too hungover to play, as confirmed by Bono during an interview many years later. Clayton was back on stage the following night and appears in the video. Clayton no longer drinks and has cited the devastation he felt at missing the Friday concert in Sydney as his motivation for staying sober since.
