U2 / Special DVD Edition

Go Home may be packaged like a compact disc, though do not try popping this baby into your boom-box. This is a DVD and has all of the bells and whistles to prove it. The main attraction o­n the disc is a live concert filmed o­n the first of September back in 2001. The event took place at Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland, a location which has left an imprint o­n Bono and his buddies. You see, this is where the boys recorded a substantial amount of the tracks off of 1984's Unforgettable Fire. This factoid and more can be found o­n the accompanying documentary (appropriately titled) Unforgettable Fire. The concert itself embodies the complete spirit of U2; while the event is particularly grandiose, the band tries to make the night as intimate as possible-or at least as intimate as it can get when you have gajillions of screaming fans flooding the courtyard. The concert was filmed when the group's All That You Can't Leave Behind began conquering the Billboard charts, so it's natural to see that a nice little chunk of the songs performed are off of that said album. These include "Walk o­n", "Elevation" and (naturally) "Beautiful Day". However, if you're an old school U2 fan (and frankly, who isn't?), you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Performing each and every classic from their catalogue (including "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "Where the Streets Have No Name", "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" and "One"), U2 understands exactly what U want and knows how to deliver it. Whether you're a diehard fanatic who knows The Edge's favorite color or you simply enjoy the sounds of these happy go lucky Irishmen, this Slane Castle spectacle is the ultimate royal treat.
