Slane Catle DVD @ 06:15 pm

guitarguy701:
I'm thinking about buying the Slane Castle DVD, I just bought the Boston DVD recently and I loved it, so I now I really want to see how it compares. Before I buy it, I just want to make sure its worth the money though, so if anyone has any comments on how good it is, what its like overall, or how it compares to the Boston DVD, i'd love to hear. Thanks.

Its much better than the Boston DVD. But then I would say that considering I was at the first slane show. The difference for me is that on the Boston DVD. The band are playing to the cameras, so the performance is good, but stiff. The Slane show was never meant for official release. So you see a much more relaxed band performance.

Yeah it was a great show. Of course we got ASOHC. But I actually prefered some of the indoor shows I saw.

why do you even have to ask if a U2 dvd is worth buying?


BUY IT

DO IT.

I love BOTH DVDs, and because of the difference, it's hard to judge which is better.

I do love Slane from more of a U2-fan background, because they have lots of little jokes, play Out of Control... it's SUCH an amazing show. Lots of songs missed off the Boston DVD too :)

I own both... they both have different feelings. I love Slane cuz its such a personal show for U2, I love it when he dedicates "All I want is you" to Ali... fav song in there. But I can't wait until old U2 concerts on vhs comes out on dvd! like Zoo Tv and Popmart!!!!

The Slane DVD is much, much better than the Boston DVD. In Boston they were playing to a relatively lifeless crowd, and knew they were being filmed...Slane was in front of a loud end energetic audience, in their hometown. The setlist is similar but beyond that there's no comparison...

Wow, I just got the Slane DVD for my birthday, so now I'm even more psyched (if that's possible) to watch it!

I agree that the Slane DVD is a billion times better than Boston. There's a stiffness to the Boston performance that isn't there for the Slane show. It's. Fabulous. :)

Aw, now I'm gonna have to shell out the cash for Slane, too. Sounds too good not to buy.

I guess there is an upside to not getting tickets to any of the Philly shows. At least now I'll have the dough for another DVD, lol!

Oh no, you didn't? Monkey balls! I'm sorry. :(

But yes, the Slane DVD is lovely. It makes me happy that they released it, because I had a ticket to that show and my parents prevented me from going (curses!). Alas. It's all wibbly. :)

I know, isn't it blasphemous? My parents told me if I went, I wouldn't be studying abroad in Ireland the following semester. I think I cried for three days, I was so mad at them. My ticket did go to a good home, but still. Agh.

Aw, that's sad. *pets*

(And oh how I love those purveyors of chocolate cake, as one can always snag tickets to a Finn concert without difficulty. ;D)

Better than the Boston dvd, because the band works harder for the home crowd and the crowd gives more. "One" gives me the trembles every time.

I haven't seen the Boston DVD, but Slane Castle is incredible - just incredible. It is U2, IN their element. A must-see.
