The ultimate live 2 CD set will be beautifully presented in a photographic book documenting the iNNOCENCE and eXPERIENCE tours of 2015 and 2018. This one-off special release, produced by the band especially for U2.com Subscribers, will not be on sale online or in store.
From “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone),” “Every Breaking Wave” and “Song for Someone” to “The Blackout,” “Get Out Of Your Own Way” and “13 (There Is A Light),” this is the ultimate live companion to Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience, celebrating two extraordinary tours.
The complete track listing will be published soon with shipping beginning in spring 2019.
Starting in January until the CDs are shipped, U2.com will be offering regular downloads of each of the new tracks. The package is available to new and existing subscribers who renew their U2.com membership.
Fans can also choose to receive U2 3-D Dance Mixes for their 2019 membership package. U2 3-D Dance Mixes includes a 12” vinyl record featuring three remixes as well as an exclusive Rattle And Hum gatefold poster, plus a pair of black and white prints from the period by Anton Corbijn.
Memberships cost $50 for each one of the above options or $85 for both. All memberships also include access to unique online content including exclusive editorial and video; a 25% coupon to use in the U2.com shop; U2.com subscriber newsletters and opportunities to access special events; pre-order opportunities for special U2 releases and first access to ticket pre-sales, if the band announce tour dates.
The band took a break between those tours to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree in 2017. A concert film capturing The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 is “in the finishing stages,” according Corbijn, who’s directing the film. The longtime U2 director/photographer shared the news last week during a forum in Hamburg, Germany.
“U2, yeah, that’s sort of in the finishing stages. And that should be released, uh, 2019,” he tells U2tour.de. “It’s a concert film with bits at the front and bits at the back that are different.”
More details as it becomes available. The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 became the biggest tour of the year. The group played to over 2.7 million fans in just 51 shows across North and South America, the UK and Europe, and Mexico to capture the feat.
