This month marks the 20th anniversary of Achtung Baby, the seminal rock album from U2.
Released on November 19, 1991, Achtung Baby would contain five of the band’s biggest singles — including “One,” “Mysterious Ways” and “The Fly.” The album earned the band a Grammy Award in ’93 for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. It sold more than 18 million copies worldwide. It’s a damn good album.
In celebration of the anniversary of Achtung Baby, we’re screening U2 3D, the 2008 3D concert film from the band’s Vertigo tour.
U2 3D broke barriers in the world of concert films. It was the first live-action digital 3D film and it featured the largest amount of 3D cameras used for a single project. The result shows — the film is a totally immersive experience that eerily captures what it feels like to be at one of the band’s larger than life concerts.
This 85 minute long concert film takes audiences through seven different concerts — filmed across Latin America and Australia. The set list is a nice sampling of the band’s career — including classics such as “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “Bullet the Blue Sky” alongside newer hits like “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own.”
Suitable for the entire family, this is the pinnacle for what 3D concert films should be like and a must-see for both fans of the band and rock in general.
Tickets are only $7 so don’t miss out on U2 3D’s triumphant return to the Houston market. Who knows when you’ll have another chance to catch this film on the big screen again.
