U2 BRINGS ITS REINVENTION OF THE ROCK & ROLL ARENA SHOW TO HBO IN TWO WORLD PREMIERES:

BEHIND THE SCENES DOCUMENTARY ON THE iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE TOUR

iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE LIVE IN PARIS CONCERT SPECIAL

U2 and HBO will be debuting a unique combination of two exclusive world premiere specials this fall, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, President, HBO Programming. First, to debut on Nov. 7, a behind-the-scenes documentary that offers unprecedented access to the band and the team that worked with them to conceptualize and create its current iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE world tour. The following week, the network will present the tour’s Nov. 14 performance filmed at the newly renovated Bercy Arena in Paris and aired exclusively on HBO that same day. Both the documentary and the concert will be available on HBO GO and HBO NOW simultaneous to the programs’ HBO world premieres.

“U2 continues to take risks, which has made them one of the most consistently exciting forces in rock’n’roll,” said Lombardo. “The one-two combination of this documentary special, followed by the concert, will provide viewers with the ultimate look at this remarkable band behind the scenes and on the stage.”

The documentary takes a look into the creation of U2’s wildly innovative and widely acclaimed iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE world tour, which began May 14 in Vancouver and currently runs through November. The special will detail how a show of this magnitude is conceived, revealing the blood, sweat and imagination that has gone into making iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE, the tour that would ultimately “reinvent the arena show,” according to Rolling Stone’s opening night review.

Interviews in the documentary include all four members of U2 – Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. – as well as the supporting cast of Willie Williams, who has created tour concepts for the band for more than 30 years, award-winning designer Es Devlin, newly signed on for this tour, production director Jake Berry, Audio Director Joe O’Herlihy, executive director Gavin Friday, set designer Ric Lipson, and others who bring iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE to life around U2’s music, night after night.

The special also explores the challenges and setbacks U2 faced in the months before tour rehearsals began in April, including Bono’s serious bicycle accident in New York last fall, and his — and the band’s — hard road getting back into “fighting shape” for their triumphant return with iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE. This exclusive documentary chronicles in detail how these same four friends, who started out as a humble punk band from the Northside of Dublin more than 30 years ago, continue to create magic nightly with the most grandiose, yet most intimate, arena tour ever staged.

On Nov. 14th, the audience will see for itself the results of all of that hard work when U2 plays the Bercy Arena in Paris on the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour, showcasing the inventive set that allows U2 to explore the concepts of iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE via a performance that literally moves throughout the venue via multiple stages, a one-of-a-kind interactive floor-to-ceiling arena-length LED screen that has earned its reputation as the fifth member of U2 on this run, and a radical new approach to surround sound that ensures that everyone in the audience sees, feels and hears the show with maximum impact from every seat in the house.

And of course, there are the songs: The iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE setlists span the band’s entire career, from its 1980 debut album, Boy, to its most recent work, Songs of Innocence. The concepts of innocence and experience are explored in vivid musical and visual detail, progressing from songs inspired by the members of U2’s earliest influences and formative life experiences through decades worth of indelible anthems from the band that has won more Grammys than any other living rock band.

The documentary will be produced and directed by Davis Guggenheim (the Oscar®-winning An Inconvenient TruthWaiting For SupermanIt Might Get Loud featuring U2’s The Edge, and From The Sky Down–the 2011 documentary chronicling the recording and release of U2’s 1991 classic Achtung Baby) and produced by Shannon Dill with U2 manager Guy Oseary serving as Executive Producer.

The concert will be produced by Done And Dusted with Executive Producers Hamish Hamilton, Simon Pizey, Davis Guggenheim and Guy Oseary. It will be directed by Hamish Hamilton, who has worked with the band since 2001. Collaborations include Elevation 2001: Live from BostonU2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle, Ireland; the Beautiful Day Documentary; and Vertigo 2005: Live from Chicago. The youngest recipient of the BAFTA Special Award, Hamish has Directed and Executive Produced the London 2012 Olympic & ParaOlympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Directed the last six Super Bowl Half-Time shows, multiple Academy Awards ceremonies, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for over a decade, President Obama’s Inaugural Ball, MTV’s VMA’s, and many more.

NEARLY 1/4 OF iTUNES USERS ARE LISTENING TO U2

“This is fantastic news. If these figures suggest that these songs still matter to people, then we’re knocked out. That’s all any songwriter wants.” — Bono

An independent study has concluded that U2 accounted for 23% of all music listened on iOS devices throughout January 2015.

The study, conducted by the Kantar Group, found that not only was U2 the most-listened-to act on the iOS platform, but that more users were listening to U2 than the second (Taylor Swift at 11%) and third (Katy Perry at 8%) runners-up combined.

Additionally, Kantar found that 95% of the U2 listeners listened to one or more tracks from the band’s current album, Songs Of Innocence.

“It’s nice to know that 5 months on so many people have discovered Songs of Innocence. In the end we just wanted people to hear the album. We took a big risk but today we can say that the experiment worked.” — The Edge

Monday, December 8, 2014 — As tickets go on sale today to the general public for U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015, the band has unveiled a bold new artistic initiative in the form of Films of Innocence: A visionary collection of 11 films by the world’s most vital urban visual artists, each inspired by one of the 11 tracks on U2’s Songs of Innocence album.

From 4pm GMT / 11am ET, the same day that general on sales open for U2’s return to indoor arenas for 22 pairs of shows in 19 cities, the U2-pioneered Films of Innocence project is celebrating the visceral power of urban art with 24-hour exclusive premieres across the following 11 platforms:

Stereogum  – “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” by Oliver Jeffers
Complex – “Every Breaking Wave” by Robin Rhode
The Nerdist   “California (There Is No End To Love)” – D*Face
NPR – “Song For Someone” by Mode 2
Dezeen – “Iris (Hold Me Close)” by Chloe Early
Pitchfork – “Volcano” by Ganzeer
Nowness – “Raised by Wolves” by Vhils
Dazed Digital – “Cedarwood Road” by Maser
Rolling Stone – “Sleep Like A Baby” by ROA
Paper Magazine – “This Is Where You Can Find Me Now” by DALeast
Juxtapoz – “The Troubles” by Todd James

Following the 24-hour premieres, the Films Of Innocence collection will be available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon. U2.com subscribers will receive an exclusive bonus in the form of Conor Harington’s visual interpretation of the Songs Of Innocence bonus track “Crystal Ballroom.”

With the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 chose the artists and gave them complete creative freedom to create personal responses to U2’s music. The result is an exhilarating display of diversity in approach, style and commentary. Powerful and cognizant, Films of Innocence takes these artists and their works from the streets to the screen, as they scale the globe, play with time, and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes. The result is an essential visual counterpoint to the album.
