What's the word on a DVD for JT17?

Recommended Posts

I know nothing's official until it's official, but has there be any rumblings or indicators as to whether they filmed one for DVD release?

I would guess one of the South America concerts will be released.

If you look at the setlists for that final leg you will see that they are the same night after night. To me this means that the band were doing live rehearsals and getting the set right for DVD.

This will be a down-time release I'd say with all that's coming over the new 12 months. Might be a few years before we get to see it, like Slane.

Anton Corbijn apparently filmed all of the South American shows. 

It's uncertain at this time if it's going to be one concert as the basis of the release with small pieces from additional shows used to enhance the primary concert, or if the entire release will be assembled from various dates.

But I wouldn't expect to see it until next Christmas season.  I don't think they'll want to put it out at the same time they're promoting Songs Of Experience or touring Experience & Innocence.

I figured it was just a given that there would be a dvd release. It will be a huge waste if there isn't and it definitely seemed like they were filming every night (at least some parts of the shows). Because of the videos that kept going up on the social media outlets.

Will be released next Christmas season as someone said earlier.

Any release and promotion will keep interest generated for further tour dates likely going into early 2019.

I attended and as good as the show was I do remember thinking it wouldn't make a great DVD production - The giant screen etc. was great being there but not sure it would be as entertaining to watch as the Innocence or 360 DVD release.

Band were on great form musically but it did feel quite static compared to previous tours.

I hope if/when it comes out, that the 8K videos are special features of their own. It would be nice if extra tracks were songs that didn't make it on most setlists. A Sort of Homecoming, the Sweetest Thing, MLK, and Don't Look Back in Anger (though, they probably wouldn't go through with getting the rights).

A TJT Live dvd could come out this side of Christmas.

The next tour is likely to go into next year with band playing other countries not visited in recent years. That tour dvd likely to come out after that.

If they release a JT2017 DVD, I hope they include Noel Gallagher's encore from Twickenham #1.

When they were in Mexico, Edge said that they were filming the shows for the DVD. And there were cameras all over the place. But I haven't heard anything eversince.

I would like a DVD as well.  Do you think it would sell enough to merit producing one?  Most people I know who went to that show would not buy it.  They are fans from the past and don't buy copies of concerts.  This is not to say I would not buy it.  I'm wondering how many would.  I'm hoping enough to merit releasing one.  

I don't like how I presented the above.  It's two days later.  I wish I had said that I'm glad Edge spoke or recordings taking place.  I'll jump on buying it.  Most people I know will just stream it.  They think it's stupid to pay for a concert dvd.  I did not mean to question U2's ability to put out something so monumental.  Pardon me, please.

I finally figured out what I've been trying to express.  Whenever DVDs have been filmed at shows I've attended, they've always put up a disclaimer stating that anyone present knows and agrees to being filmed.  I did not see where anyone posted of this happening at a show.  Did Edge mention they were filming?  Perhaps the law changed and they no longer need to inform people?

I'd buy it.  I hope that they do.  The Super Deluxe boxed set was fantastic and I think that a DVD set would make a nice companion.  If they do, I can't imagine it would be released until after E+I ends.  I don't know how long it would take to produce, but it seems unlikely it would be released this year.  Taking into consideration the European leg ends in early November, that doesn't leave much time to get it out before Christmas.  

It would be wonderful if they did, though.  I don't really stream that much and would prefer the old-fashioned DVD/Blu-Ray.  But, I'm old.

Well, I'm with you in the preferring-the-physical-item category.

You know, I'm of two minds (at least) about DVD/BluRay releases for JT 2017 and for e&i 2018. They could very easily release JT this holiday season; there really wouldn't be any reason to wait. Also, DC was just recently recorded (ostensibly for release) - so were the Apollo Theater show and the Newark show in 360 degrees. These are already in the can. They aren't on the road again until the end of next month. Thus, it is not inconceivable that one or more of these could be out this Xmas season - as I already said, if they are planning a release for the JT anniversary tour, I would think that would definitely come out this year. It's whether or not the e&i tour makes it out this year too - the European tour would be over by the time they would be releasing e&i to the market (if they have a view to releasing it this year).

I even wonder if they would do some kind of deluxe live set that would include both, whether for Xmas this year or by next summer. I also wonder if they are planning to upgrade the pre-U2360 shows to BluRay anytime soon - that would be a great set.

If we still appreciate the physical versus cyber-I'll take age.  Nothing beats putting the disc into the machine, hitting play and hearing that sound not being compressed.  I like even looking at my U2 dvds on the rack.  They always make me smile.

I'd love for JT 2017 to be released this year.  I was thinking about how long it would take to edit, press and distribute the DVD/BD.  I know that the band puts their collective and creative hands in the production of tour videos.  And, I wonder if they are using the period between tour legs for some R&R or to work (revising set-lists for Europe, JT '17 DVD/BD, etc.)  It would seem right to release JT '17 hot off of the heels of this current tour.  Demand would be at its highest and they could capitalize on the holiday buying season.  Obviously, this is my take on it and I know nothing.

I remember having the VHS copies of Rattle & Hum, ZOO TV Outside Broadcast and PopMart (Live from Mexico).  They were regular occupants in my Sony S-VHS VCR (oh, yeah).  Unfortunately, the VCR died and by that time, I had converted DVD player (Sony as well).  I can't remember how long it took, but it was a while before they came out on DVD and I did buy them.  I agree it would be totally awesome to have ZOO TV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo on Blu-Ray--all in one set.

Yes, I loved those VHS tapes too - wore them all out! :D Sony always makes good stuff - that's why my 5.1 system is Sony. B) (It's also why I'm aching for everything in BluRay too - odds of surround sound are increased with BluRay (yes, there is 5.1 for DVD as well, but for BluRay it is more likely and sounds a bit better).)

I'm hoping for a double serving this Xmas - but I'd be happy for just JT if they wanted to release things more progressively.

I saw this yesterday:  

I have been having bad headaches from seeing so many shows in a short span of time. (small price to pay even though they are nasty)  I can't look straight at the screen.  I thought this was an official announcement by the band for a dvd/blu ray in October.  Sadly, it is not.  I like streaming this guy's work.  Can someone please explain how he legally does this?  I see that he is attached with other U2 sites.  I am trying to understand, not criticize.  I would search and read on my own.  I am typing and looking at the screen from a thirty degree angle.  (no complaints)  I thought HERE IT IS!  OCTOBER!  ONE BLU RAY ON THE WAY!!!!     nope.   lmfao.   I love life but I want my TJT30 Bluray.  This trailer got me very excited.  I can stream this. I want that full sound dmway keeps mentioning.  I want the cool U2 packaging. Someone mentioned putting a stamp on something and sending it up...please do!   I'm begging but being goofy.  😶

I still have mine.  We also used to tape their vids on MTV and then sync them with the cds for better sound.
