Filmed on 25th October 2009
U2360° At The Rose Bowl was the penultimate gig of last year's U2360° tour in support of their Grammy-nominated album No Line on The Horizon. The Rose Bowl performance was the band's biggest show of 2009 and U2's biggest ever US show, with a live audience in excess of 97,000. The show was also streamed across seven continents via YouTube. The first ever live streaming of a full-length stadium concert, U2360° at the Rose Bowl had over 10 million views on the channel in one week.
Shot entirely in HD, the concert was filmed with 27 cameras and directed by Tom Krueger who had previously worked on U23D, the first live action 3D concert movie taken from U2's Vertigo Tour. Available in standard and two disc deluxe DVD formats, U2360° At The Rose Bowl will also be U2's first concert available in Blu-ray. The deluxe formats and the Blu-ray will feature a new documentary called Squaring the Circle: Creating U2360°, with new interviews from U2, Paul McGuinness and the team behind the touring production.

Regarding the DVD, I am disappointed because I felt the editing didn't do justice to the entire concert environment in a way that was accessible. No shot was on the screen for much longer than 7 seconds, and most between 3 and 5 seconds. I have amazingly quick vision (I make my living drawing people and things really fast) yet I felt I never had a chance to focus on any one scene before another was quickly flashed, faded into, etc. There were few views that gave a sense of the hugeness of the concert. It was like blinking my eyes and another view. I'm pretty good at connecting the dots, and even though I was at that concert, the DVD never gave much of a feeling of the whole.
While the camera work and sound, etc., were very well done, I felt there was too much being thrown at the viewer, too fast. Frankly, I thought the Youtube live broadcast provided a better feel of the concert and visual experience of it, which was after all, a "world event".
and WHY is BREATHE not the first track!?!?!?!?!??! (its a 'bonus' track)
ok, good points -- Bono actually sounds damn good throughout the DVD -- especially on Unforgettable Fire....and of course The Edge and the others sound good too.
Some have commented about the editing looking more like a music video than a live concert, and I agree it does. It doesn't bother me too much, although I would have preferred just a straight-forward approach as opposed to all the overlays, dissolves, composite images, etc.
The concert itself is good. Bono and the boys sound good (although Bono's voice isn't what it used to be) and the set list is varied, although why they chose to leave the opening song "Breathe" out of the main concert and make it a "bonus feature" is puzzling.
I wish Bono a successful and speedy recovery from his recent injury and I hope to see U2 back out on the 360 tour soon. It would be nice to see them live again since the Blu-ray does a real injustice to the experience I remember.

|They are NOT going to get me again!!||
My exact experience and the same feelings. These are supposed to be collectors items, but look how cheap you can now buy used copies of the deluxe NLOTH on ebay and amazon. Like you said really nothing special added. And where do they get off charging this ridiculous price? I am done too.

Amazon does this way too often, and they don't seem concerned about it. The new Chickenfoot blu-ray is also listed at 1.33:1 not the actual widescreen, and I contacted Amazon to correct it. All they said is they can't (or won't) revisit any errors without a confirming webpage. I emailed the... Read More
