U2 'Innocence + Experience' gig from Paris coming to home video

Last year, I caught the band live during two of its LA stops and saw this HBO broadcast. Both were amazing. Looking forward to seeing this...

U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris will be released worldwide on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on June 10 via Interscope/Island.

The concert film captures the Irish band’s groundbreaking tour as it returned to the French capital for two very special shows in December last year.

In addition to guest spots from Eagles of Death Metal and Patti Smith, U2 – iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE - Live In Paris puts viewers inside the AccorHotels Arena with Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr.: the deluxe versions of the release also include a behind-the-scenes interview with live broadcast director Hamish Hamilton; exclusive tour visuals narrated by the band’s lifelong friend Gavin Friday; music videos; additional live tracks filmed during the tour; and much more. 

'Directing ‘iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE was scary,’ says live broadcast director Hamish Hamilton who previously worked with U2 on 2001’s Elevation Tour. ‘A technical nightmare married with a creative rollercoaster. It challenged everything I knew on so many levels...what blew my mind were the multiple narrative arcs combined with the number of emotional arcs you are taken through as you journey through the show. There’s a lot of good shows out there - but very few great shows.’ 

U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour kicked off in Vancouver in May 2015 and, to date, has played to over 1.2 million fans in 22 cities across Europe and North America. Staged in the round, the tour features multiple performance areas plus a state of the art 100 foot LED screen suspended above a 118 foot walkway running the length of the arena floor.
