A documentary examining the production of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed album from U2. Featuring cuts from "Where the Streets Have No Name," "With or Without You" and "Pride."
It’s U2 like you’ve never seen – or heard – them before. Make sure you have your leather trousers and moshing vest close at hand, as the band presents blistering versions of their biggest hits live from the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. And, lucky you, you’ll get to spend some time backstage with the lads as we offer you exclusive all-areas access. Feel free to make your own laminate.
Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen formed U2 back in the mid '70s. They have sold over 145 million albums worldwide and won numerous awards, including 22 Grammys. This unique programme features footage of U2's 2009 visit to London, where they performed tracks for the Live Lounge in the BBC Radio Theatre and played from the roof of Broadcasting House.
Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos and the review, criticism and insight of a panel of highly opinionated experts, this package delivers the finest documentary film yet to emerge on Dublin's favorite sons. Achtung Baby was the album that fired U2 into the 90s when the four-piece dramatically overhauled their traditional approach to songwriting.
The story of the making of The Joshua Tree is told here, via interview and archive film footage, with contributions from band members Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen. U2's long-time manager Paul McGuiness reveals how the album catapulted the band into the category of rock superstars, and there are contributions from re-mix producer Steve Lillywhite, co-producer Brian Eno and Elvis Costello among others.
U2 are almost as well known for their philanthropy and charity work as they are for their music. Over twenty years, lead singer Bono has made a name for himself as a tireless worker for social and economic change in Third World Countries. A Rock Crusade is the story of this band's never ending energy, drive and commitment to social causes.
This film tells the story of the massive regeneration of U2 during the new millennium. Across two stunning and classic albums, a world tour to accompany each, numerous side projects and a fresh attitude that not only drew the old fans back in droves, but equally attracted huge swathes of new devotees, the 'noughties' was just as much U2's decade as the eighties had been.
