5.0 out of 5 stars ..of a crown. 11 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Comes housed in a 'Super jewel Box',which is dead posh.Its a glass dvd case-yeah,glass,woop,woop!,,a lovely surprise actually coz it looks great.
Also,what can only be described as a 'gorgeous' linear booklet in the hinge.,fabulous quality/attention control here....why all dvd's never got booklets as standard anyway...but thats for another day..
The feature comes in the form of the 'whole' gig here.,the cd you bought back in the day had some serious cuts,as here we come fully loaded with a shed more tunes,a full 82 mins.Was supposed to have had a 're-grade',,but the transfer looks the same as what was on the vhs,also,back in the day-and its frame is 4:3 and unless you have a snazzy tv you're stuck....shame really.(I can't remember if the vhs held the 'whole' gig)..
This does not reflect on the audio as is top notch;3 options.,D.D 5:1 Surround/dts 5.1/Pcm Stereo.,is ntsc/region free.
Has a commentary track from the director but is rubbish-I could'a done better!...very boring.(shame)
The screen saver/menu screen,too,is framed at 4:3,,but don't let all this put you off as I'd still recommend this,overall I wouldn't have wanted this to 'look' like a bluray-wouldn't have been the same!...I could go on.
Wazza.

5.0 out of 5 stars ....I cant believe how great this is 23 July 2010
Format:DVD
If you are a u2 fan from before the Joshua Tree,you probably already own this.If you dont you should.This gig is from 1983 s War tour,some of which was broadcast on channel 4 s the tube .The weather is dire which probably adds to the magic of the footage,and considering the relat ive lack of success,or radio airplay and lack of media support at that time,its amazing the reaction the songs get ,from the fans attending.As always The Edge is the real star and backbone of this group,the songs are not as complex as later on but the he really does stand out ,and even though its pissing down he isnt wearing his hat,cool or what?It may seem dated compared to later tours ,but it is 27 years ago and anyhow if the songs are good enough,who cares about lights and crap?This is an essential purchase to a u2 fan,miles more important than 360 or Popmart,so buy it!Under A Blood Red Sky

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody fantastic 26 Jun 2014
By Angus
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I hadn't seen this 'video' in more than 20 years. It is awesome. I 'made' my kids sit and watch the opening bits where the rain is belting down and the band come on and just blast everyone away.

Its as fresh now as it was in the 80's. Walk Away and Sunday Bloody Sunday give me goosebumps.

I never really liked U2 (and still don't really) but this is a proper gig.

Read the insert about what happened before the gig and that the promoter didn't want it to go ahead and that it bucketed down in the desert state, with only half the arena filled, it turned out to be one of the best gigs ever filmed.

Fantastic

Dirty, Gritty Visuals and supreme audio. So glad I finally got this after all this time. Fabulous and a must for those who were there originally; me just a young 17 year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars U2 explodes onto the american scene 19 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
I'm one of those old timers who saw U2 back on the WAR tour--not, unfortunately, at Red Rocks, but at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium. When I watch this DVD and look at those fresh-faced kids in the audience--especially the ones being interviewed before the show, I see myself and my friends at the very same age. Like them, I remember eagerly anticipating what I hoped would be "an excellent concert," as the kid in the 'do-rag so wonderfully--and accurately--predicts.

For years, I've been trying to put my finger on what it was that amazed me so much about my first U2 concert, and this DVD has finally helped me figure it out: I went to see a band with one hit ("New Year's Day"), and I left the show feeling like I'd seen the greatest band of all time. (Thirty years later, I wonder if I was right.)

Although "I Will Follow" had reportedly gotten some airplay in America before the WAR tour, I had never heard it, and I'd venture to guess that most American kids who went to see the WAR tour were just like me: They only knew "New Year's Day," and they were just hoping for a decent show by what appeared to be an exciting new band. What we got--and what this DVD shows so beautifully--was an entire evening of incredible music--no "filler" whatsoever--performed by a positively electrifying group of guys who seemed like they'd been doing this forever. (Other reviewers have taken cheap shots at Bono's mullet, but I admit to thinking it was extremely cool at the time.) Even though we'd never heard any of these songs before, we stomped and cheered for multiple encores.

Today, everybody knows what a great concert U2 delivers. Back in 1983, few Americans knew what to expect. To our delight, we all got, as this DVD shows so beautifully, the total U2 experience.
