just watched breathe, is it me or is there nothing wrong with it? why couldnt they have included this on the dvd?
I think there was a shot of another show(vegas i think) at 3:14 in the video, but i don't see why they couldn't have re-cut one shot. Wish they director or band would have stated why breathe was cut, it seems to be on alot of people's minds.

Springsteen and the E Street Band use no hidden anything, what you see on stage is what you get. A lot of impromtu. E Street Band, biggest and best bar band in the world.

Yep, my buddy is on their lighting crew. One thing they don't use are subwoofers. They do that so that they can play louder, within the legal limits, yet make it sound great.

"Of course, when it comes to editing the show, there's an elephant in the room that has to be addressed: "Breathe," the opening song of the concert, was edited out and placed in the Bonus Material section. I was as dumbfounded and disappointed as anyone when that news first came out a few months ago, but after watching "Breathe" today (after I watched the full concert), I'm actually glad they removed it. The camera work and editing aren't up the standard of the rest of the show and, to be frank, U2's performance of that song also seems lackluster in comparison. I still long for U2 to release a full, unedited concert ... but I think I understand why they didn't this time.

 

As much as I love this DVD, it's not perfect. There's a noticeable edit in "Mysterious Ways" where the audio and video don't match; Bono is singing, yet, on screen, the mic is not near his mouth. I also think some opportunities were missed to bring up the crowd volume, especially during the sing-a-long portions of "Unknown Caller." But those are minor quibbles to be sure. Slightly more than "minor" is this complaint: Aside from the new documentary, Squaring the Circle, the bonus material is pretty lame. The "BD Live" section has downloadable tour clips, but the same clips also seem to be available in the Bonus Material section; it also has tour photos that many fans will have already seen on Edge's Twitter account_74615. The promise of new BD Live tour content this summer is now a moot point because of the postponement. Much of the other bonus material is stuff many fans will have already seen on U2.com or elsewhere online."

the bad audio match up is what i spotted also. on moment of surrender.

Is anybody going to mention the terribly grainy video quality? I was very disappointed, for a Blu Ray, it looks really bad at times.

There is an assumtion that most people seem to have that all blu-rays are 1080p, but if you look at the back of the case it clearly states 1080i. In my opinion i think they went 1080i because they planned on using the stage cameras from the video screens for some shots, and if they went 1080p the difference between stage production cameras and 1080p cameras was to obvious when they switched from one to another. I think some of the video shoot cameras were less than HD though, also 1080P and 720P tvs tend not to look great when watching 1080i (one of the many times useless bits of info. I learned from working at Circuit City).
