    During the concert in Berlin (13th november) at the end of City of Blinding Lights there was a wonderful moment on the screen. When U2 was in Berlin late August, early September, Willie Williams visited the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche (Memorial-Church) and post an Instagram message about it. In the glasses of the church he noticed the letters EI. Experience and Innocence.
    At the end of COBL, the graphic images of the city showed the memorial church and zoomed in on the glass walls of the octagonal church. The screen was filled with square blue stained glass panes. Then in some squares all kinds of icons emerged that were a reminder of this tour. It was a very impressive picture, which ended with the square with EI in it. This visual completion of COBL was unique and made especially for this last concert. Really beautiful!


    Good catch.

  4. ooh you're right! well, here's hoping it's gonna take six months max.
  5. One of the very few moments of the night which maybe didn’t get quite the reception it deserved was bono pre best thing talking about realising his dad loved him, I found that very touching.
  6. Since TJT30 will be released in spring, my personal guess is, the e+i DVD will be released not before end of summer or fall. Because they want to sell both of them
    If TJT30 comes to cinemas in March, it won't be out before April or May; so they need another "selling break" before the next release. Probably another 6 months after TJT. Which would also be closer to the maybe-OZ-tour which might give a sales boost to it. It's all about sales, marketing and money in the end.

    For those who can't wait, I will be done with the Multicam by Christmas or New Year's Eve.
    (After that horrible edit of Paris, I'm really afraid the official Berlin DVD won't do the show any justice....)
  7. I wonder if there may be a broadcast of the Berlin show for the Christmas period.
    I recall one of the Paris shows being leaked prior to actual TV broadcast.

    I think we had that 2015 TV broadcast for a reason so soon as the aftermath of the Paris atrocities.
  8. All (both?) of the Paris shows were leaked not long after the gig. If I recall, they were mixed almost on the fly ready for the HBO broadcast a few hours after the gig. Given the time zone difference, they had some time to make additional tweaks.

    And we say “leaked”.

    Yes. I forgot about the fact they were for a HBO broadcast. I know versions exist different to the DVD release and ended up on YouTube.

    Yes I really liked that
  12. Yes it was touching. In combination with the speech and “I’m sorry” during Dirty Day. The IE and EI tours went from being about mother to coming to terms with father.
