For those of you who haven't seen it, the artwork for the new DVD has surfaced:

Personally i'm not too keen on it, but i've not generally liked the art direction for the HTDAABera. What do you guys think?

Funny, I just commented on that on Interference! I said it was too Bono-slanted, and I stand by that. He's cool and all, but this does nothing to assure my mum there are 4 people in that band, lol!

Too similar to ATYCLB. And it's a trainwreck. Not that either of these things makes me love it less or anything ;)

Maybe just the simple bullseye with a tiny silhouette with the guys in the middle/off to the side.. I dunno, just thinking aloud..

I edited it around a little on paintshop (too much spare time on my hands right now...) and it looks alot better with less symbols going on. Just the plain stripes, the skyline, Bono and and the text.

That's lame. And why from Chicago? Elevation Boston sucks because of the American audience, but Slane DVD is amazing. So they should have filmed in Europe...

I don't think the Elevation Boston audience sucks because it's American. I'm sure Europe has its fair share of bad audiences, too. :)

Love it! In the same stylistic essence of the Elevation DVD, but definitely it's own new creation. Can't wait!!!

I don`t like it. Too much red, too many different things tried to be put on one picture. It doesn`t look good.A bit more simplicity, please. Actually I like the general arwork of HTDAAB era, in fact its my favourite but this is a bit too much. And yes, why is only Bono on the cover. U2 is a band of 4 members, not a solo artist :D

I kind of like it. I think that its a bit over the top but since when has Bono done anything less? The fact is that no matter how you feel about it, positive or negative, you have to deal with it. He's trying to make a statement, as usual, and he's pushing you to think. U2 has never wanted their fans to be idle listeners. It's almost like he's screaming "DO SOMETHING!!" You may not always agree with Bono, but, at least he's active.
Thanks for sharing the artwork.

I think it looks really similar to Elevation. And it isnt very cool Bono is the only one on it. Other than that I like it alot though.

I don't mind it all that much. I rather love that part of the show where he gets all bondage-y. (I'm sorry, I know that's not the point, but the thought definitely crossed my mind.)

Well, my oft-Myspace-Assaulted eyes have sadly become used to media barrages, and this is a barrage full of material I want to see. I love it.

Too funny.

This'll more than likely have better content than some of those overdone profiles though.
