Anton Corbijn is rumoured to be working on the tour film for The Joshua Tree 2017. Corbijn’s visuals are firmly connected with the original album, and his visuals form the basis for much of the current tour, especially the 11 songs from the original album. Corbijn is no stranger to working on tour films, as he’s directed Depeche Mode’s Devotional film in 1993, and their Live in Berlin film in 2014. Corbijn has been at the last few tour stops and has been filming some footage. The rumour shared with us is that the two shows in Buenos Aires are the two that are being filmed this tour. That gives the band and Corbijn two shows to get the shots that they require for the tour documentary. But it appears some pre-production work is being done already at various shows in the USA.

Originally posted by LikeASong:Rumourology strikes back: it now seems as if they recorded a few songs in San Diego just for lighting tests, and the shows that would be recorded for release are in fact the Mexican ones.

It seems so. The stadium wasn't damaged, and you'd think people would have been notified already if the concerts were to be cancelled.
