He suggested that the first time I listen to it should be in the dark through headphones. I took his advice and from the first note of “Where the Streets Have No Name” I was transported.
I have been a huge U2 fan ever since.
Over the years I have attended big rock shows by such icons as Hendrix, The Doors, Lennon, McCartney, Talking Heads, The Police, but nothing gives me more of a thrill than seeing the boys from Dublin entrall a stadium full of folks.
So when someone said “U2 3D in IMAX” I broke out in goose-flesh.
However, nothing could prepare me for the dis-corporate experience that the film creates. The skillful use of 3D projects you into the audience, then above it and then on stage all driven by perfect IMAX surround sound. This is miles better than any live concert I have ever attended.
For any U2 fan and there was an audience filled with them it was a pure orgasmic experience, people were singing along and waving their cellphones high.
If I have any complaint about U2 3D it is that at 90 minutes the film is too short. Still it’s a half hour longer than any live concert I have seen at Casino Rama.
