U2 Live at The Apollo. For One Night Only
In June 2018, U2 played a one-off show at Harlem’s historic Apollo Theatre and it was a night to remember.
‘Felt like something you’d never come across again,’ was how Stereogum put it. It was.
Performing before just 1500 fans and originally aired for Sirius XM radio subscribers in the US, the show rapidly gained a stellar reputation amongst fans.
Variety caught the vibe.
‘None of the dazzling special effects that have become a hallmark of their big-room shows; just lights, a stage, and one of the greatest live rock bands in history at full throttle, roaring through songs from their nearly 40-year catalog.’
Including an encore to take your breath away when the 13-piece Sun Ra Arkestra appears from the back of the stage for a dazzling Rattle and Hum moment featuring ‘Angel of Harlem’, ‘Desire’ and ‘When Love Comes to Town’.
Now the set will be released in a special commemorative CD and download package, the latest of our U2.com limited editions.

U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE – LIVE IN BERLIN
‘U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE – LIVE IN BERLIN’, directed by Matt Askem, is a live show from Berlin in 2018, released on DVD for 2020 subscribers to U2.com.
If the 2015 film ‘U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Live in Paris’ was the definitive live document of 2014’s Songs of Innocence album, this new film is the definitive live document of 2017’s Songs of Experience album.
The show is performed in the round with the same innovative production as its companion iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour which ‘reinvented the arena show’ (Rolling Stone) two years before.
With twenty three songs over two hours and twenty two minutes, the film follows the action as it moves between multiple performance areas and the groundbreaking state of the art 100 foot LED screen suspended above the arena-length walkway.
The DVD is accompanied by a booklet of exclusive photos by tour photographer Ross Stewart and produced by the band’s long time graphic designer Shaughn McGrath, with creative direction by Gavin Friday.

U2 3-D DANCE MIXES
This October marks thirty years since the release of RATTLE AND HUM and our 2018 subscriber gift is a celebration of the anniversary.
The limited edition set includes a 12” vinyl record featuring three remixes as well as an exclusive RATTLE AND HUM gatefold poster plus a pair of black and white prints from the period by Anton Corbijn.
The 12” vinyl, inspired by an ultra collectable 1989 promo EP from Island Records, features remixes of three classic tracks from the era – When Love Comes To Town, God Part II and Desire.
The ‘Live From The Kingdom Mix’ of When Love Comes To Town – running to nearly 8 minutes – includes a ‘sermon’ by Little Richard while ‘The Hard Metal Dance Club Mix’ of God Part II (at almost 7 minutes) samples John Lennon’s voice and includes the recorded words of Martin Luther King. Both of these extended remixes have never previously been commercially available.
RATTLE AND HUM, a double album produced by Jimmy Iovine, was released on October 10th 1988. A companion set to the Phil Joanou-directed film documenting live performances from the 1987 Joshua Tree tour, the 17 album tracks also included new songs recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis in November 1987.

THE JOSHUA TREE SINGLES VINYL COLLECTION: 1987 & 2017
There’s a good chance many of you could name the four original single releases from The Joshua Tree. With or Without You. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. Where The Streets Have No Name. In God’s Country. (Ok, we named them for you.)
For many fans, those songs were the soundtrack of 1987, two of them worldwide No.1’s, and with the new tour opening in Vancouver this month, they’re on the playlist all over again.
For our 2017 special gift to subscribers we’re bringing together 1987 and 2017, in a unique limited edition collection of four 10″ vinyl records. On the A side of each disc you’ll find the remastered original studio track, while the B side features a live performance of the same track from this summer’s tour.
The label of each vinyl features previously unseen colour portraits by Anton Corbijn and the discs come in a sleeve capturing the original band member portrait from the 7″ single cover, backed by a brand new live image from the 2017 shows!
As usual, nobody else will have a copy of this one-off vinyl collection and it won’t be for sale online or in store. It’s produced just for our subscribers. In the next few months, you’ll be able to download all the tracks. We’re anticipating physical delivery of the four-disc set from September. In a year that a special edition of The Joshua Tree celebrates its 30th anniversary, this is a unique companion piece…available only to our subscribers.
