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.
The thing that makes the Slane Castle DVD exceptional is the sound quality. It's outstanding for a live show and the best I've heard on a concert DVD. For financial reasons I had to decide between the Slane Castle and the Live in Boston DVDs. I felt that the Slane DVD would be the better bet because I figured U2 would give their all doing a concert in their native country at a venue that had special meaning to them. Later on I was able to see the Live in Boston DVD and although I felt that it was very good in its own right and probably had better features, I felt overall the Slane DVD was better. The Slane DVD is superior because they just did a better job on the songs. There are a few songs on the Slane DVD that I actually like more than the original studio versions. They are: 'Out of Control'; 'Kite'; 'All I Want Is You'; and 'Bullet The Blue Sky'. Truly outstanding. I hate to use the word "beautiful" but the Edge's guitar-playing in 'With Or Without You' is exactly that. He's truly at his melodic best in that number.
U2: Go Home is a great concert DVD and a must for anyone who digs U2.
