    Achtung Baby
  1. Incidentally, my own favourite performance of Zoo station is the one on the Vertigo tour Chicago DVD 2005. I wish they would put the HD version of the show for streaming again 🙏🏼
  2. In the E&I concert Bono talks about their time in Berlin recording Achtung Baby at Hansa studios , Zoo station being from that album and described it as a difficult time when they “fell out of love with the U2 project” (could they have broken up even ?!) but came up with the song One , which they “really, really, really needed to hear “. At first I thought Berlin had named that train station in honour of the U2 song (see screenshot attached of the song being performed on the DVD, Zoo station). But it was actually the station that inspired the song title. The station is next to Be
  3. I have the I+E live double CD that has tracks from various different concerts and appreciate it. Im not bothered that the Berlin concert is not HD. It is all about the music for me. It is a brilliant showpiece and I still can’t stop listening to it. What I do wish however , is that they would release the whole show as downloadable audio tracks that I can play on my smartphone or in the car. At times , I crave to listen to it but can’t. The delivery is like no other performance they have ever done, quite unique and an evolution.
  4. Premium package CD offering. I can’t help feeling the premium package CD offering should have been of the Berlin DVD show , not the CD from last year. I definitely would have signed up for that.
  5. i toggled the resolution from 2160p to standard def ... the 5.1 audio came back.
  6. To add to my post above ,even streaming the show using my smart TV’s built in web browser , Dolby digital is coming only in 2 channel stereo. My amp states a Dolby digital 5.1 is being received but only the left and right channels are firing. I much preferred the 5.1 mix i would really like to know if anyone else is experiencing the same issue . Is anyone ? Max , can you look into this please ?
  7. I’m glad you finally received last years gift. im not sure what has happened to the 5.1 Dolby Digital audio with streaming the Berlin show . I used to get the rear channels just fine. I am airplaying to my Apple TV 4K as I always have done. The amp is saying 5.1 but I am definitely only getting stereo sound , not even the centre channel. Is anyone else getting this issue ? if I play anything else in my ITunes movies library , the Center and rear channels play fine. this is something that has happened only in the last couple of weeks I think and I wonder if
  8. Sure they could change their mind about a commercial physical release. But I think it’s unlikely. There is far too much money to be made by selling the rights to a streaming giant. To put things into perspective most notebook PCs don’t even have an optical drive any more and an ever increasing new generation of people will not even have a DVD player. It is becoming legacy equipment. I’m not sure it’s such a mistake for the content owners’ bottom line , however much we may lament the lack of a physical HD release. We have the DVD as a fan club gift. In time it will become a bigger gift than we
  9. I think we should believe them when they say that Berlin show will not get a commercial physical media Hi Def release (Blu Ray). I think the 4K streaming rights will ultimately be sold to a mainstream streaming platform in an immensely lucrative deal for U2, eclipsing what could be made from physical media sales and instantaneously so. The usual suspect is Netflix. But Apple TV+ is desperate to make waves, they have very deep pockets and it would be a huge coup for them, my money would be on Apple. It would also be something of a love letter, I reference The Complete U2, a digital box se
  10. Another one. Sorry , I tried inverting it , hoping it would get inverted again but it’s still inverted !
  11. Bono wore a “blister” suit on some tracks on the Popmart DVD. It always reminded me of his “the fly” look with the bug-eyed shades. Only they did not perform the fly on the DVD. sorry it’s upside down I hope mods can assist
  12. I went to the Justin Timberlake 20/20 experience concert about 5 years ago. The final Vegas show was filmed by famed Jonathan Demme who has died now. It was a fabulous show and I waited ages for a blu ray release. Eventually it was sold to Netflix and never got a blu ray release, which I was very miffed about as the Netflix show is missing several fantastic songs from the concert. Maybe U2 Berlin could eventually be sold to Netflix. personally, I don’t mind as long as it is the full unedited show as well as disc format is also marketed.
  13. Thank you. Great , relieved it’s the same CD as I didn’t need another set and only ordered the DVD. my CD set from last year came inside an oversized booklet. Looks like the one from this year is the same size as the disc , unless I’m mistaken. I have to take back what I always believed about dts. I’ve been listening to U2 concert DVDs this evening. They invariably actually sound better in Dolby digital (DD) than dts , at least on my Onkyo amp that I now use. I have the I&E Blu ray. Aside from the stereo track , this only has a dts soundtrack, no DD. I just pu
  14. is the 2 CD set the exact same as last year’s ? I have the CDs from last year, is why I ask. I only chose the DVD.
