Go Home: Live From Slane Castle
Everybody’s favorite figurehead, Bono, returns with his Irish companions in tow to rock you in their hometown of Dublin, Ireland. This DVD compilation finds the band digging deep into its early repertoire, including “Out Of Control,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “New Year’s Day.” Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton are still a competent rhythm section, and The Edge still churns out wall-of-sound, effect-laden leads like no other. Even frontman, Bono, seems energized and enthusiastic as he waxes nostalgic about the first time the band played in Ireland as support for Phil Lynott’s Thin Lizzy. Some may scoff at U2 for its indulgent live shows and Bono’s politics, but one thing is certain: U2 is still a great live act. “Where The Streets Have No Name” and “One” didn’t make the pop charts on good looks alone.
