Songs for Everyone: U2 Releasing Home Video of Emotional 2015 Paris Performances


Courtesy of U2On June 10, U2 will release a new concert film titled iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE — Live in Paris on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. The release features footage from the Irish band’s emotional December 6-7, 2015, stand in the French capital that took place a few weeks after the group postponed its originally planned shows in the wake of the brutal terrorist attacks in the city on November 13.

The main video captures U2’s December 7 performance at AccorHotels Arena, which was the final show on the band’s 2015 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour. The concert, which originally aired as an HBO special that same day, features the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers playing select songs from throughout their entire career, including several tunes from its latest album, 2014’s Songs of Innocence.

The show featured a uniquely designed multimedia stage setup that included movable, floor-to-ceiling LED screens and a catwalk that stretched across the arena.

The concert also featured as a special guest Eagles of Death Metal, the American indie-rock act that was playing a gig at Paris’ Bataclan concert hall November 13 when terrorists attacked the venue, killing 89 people.

Deluxe versions of the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE — Live in Paris DVD, Blu-ray and digital video feature a variety of bonus content, including music videos; a behind-the-scenes look at the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour; an interview with the concert film’s director, Hamish Hamilton; a selection of extra live performances from U2’s 2015 trek; and more.

A Super Deluxe box set also will be available that contains a variety of collectible memorabilia, including a special USB lightbulb, a 64-page hard-cover book, dog tags, stickers, badges, a stencil set and a series of postcards.
