Did anybody else catch U2 on Access Hollywood tonight? It was pure coincidence, but imagine how excited I got when I glanced at the TV and there to my utter surprise and amazement was Bono!

I'm a bit behind on my U2, but apparently they're releasing a DVD of their Elevation tour sometime Novemember. I can't wait.. my birthday's in November, anybody feel like buying my love? ;)

Oh yeah, and they also mentioned that U2 was filming a TV show..

The DVD/TV show you mentioned are all the same show!!! They filmed it in Boston on the June 5-6 shows. I wonder if you'll see me. smirks. The filming has caused a lot of controversy to say the least. Too many people are whining about the strategically placed "beautiful" people but I won't get into it. Anyways The tv "show" will be either on Showtime/VH1/HBO?/PPV??/ or network tv and then go to DVD like the Popmart Mexico City Show. Enjoy...

uhh there is no PopMart DVD out yet... is there? I just have the vcd and my tape from the showtime broadcast. It was pretty good.

No I was not one of the lucky "beautiful" people chosen but I was in line watching the guy yank people out. I did know a couple people that were picked out. URRH. I can't really complain since I got in line at around 4pm and they started to pick people at around 5pm. I suppose people waiting in line all day have a reason to bitch and moan if someone like me who just showed up and got picked went to the head of the line. But for me... personally... I don't really care. Like I told other friends, you're going to see U2 in or close to the heart. Really close. I was right on the railing along the leftside and had the best view IMO.

Feel sorry for the guys up in the balcony where Bono is about an inch tall or less..... People complaining they should of got in first will just have to deal with it AND of those.... there are only 300 people who have any right to complain....

Sorry about the rambling... ;-)

i dont know, i thought that was really shitty. my mom told me about it and she said it was HBO that had picked people out... but they haven't even agreed to air the show yet. So U2 must have had something to do with it. That really disappoints me because they dont seem like they would care about that stuff at all and it makes me think that they really dont care about their fans as much as they claim to. I dont know. I just dont like the whole situation at all. Too bad they didn't film the night I went! That would have been great to have a DVD of their performance. Ah oh well. It was amazing regardless.

It was partly a band decision, I heard. Apperently, they were tired of seeing "the same faces every night." Cheap? Maybe so. I think sitting down during the songs was rude, though.
Either way, HBO HAS broken the contract, and will definitely not broadcast.
A video/DVD is in the works, perhaps using the footage they got that night.
