Now appearing in Paris on their Innocence and Experience tour, U2 brings a live show unlike anything seen before to HBO. The special has its first airing at 9pm on Saturday (November 14). The exclusive presentation will also be available on HBO GO and HBO NOW simultaneous to its world premiere on HBO.

The U2 touring show showcases the inventive stage set that allows U2 to explore the concepts of Innocence and Experience through a performance that literally moves throughout the venue via multiple stages, a one-of-a-kind interactive floor-to-ceiling arena-length LED screen and a radical new approach to surround sound that ensures everyone in the audience sees, feels and hears the show with maximum impact from every seat in the house. U2: Innocence and Experience – Live in Paris will be shot live and air exclusively on that same day.

U2 Streams Big on Youtube

According the Spinner, Sunday’s U2 show at the Rose Bowl drew 2.5 million web viewers.

You can watch the concert here in its entirety, all 2 hours and 21 minutes. It’s a little jerky (and forget about full screen mode unless you want to view a slideshow) but compelling nonetheless, and, you know, they’ve got some pretty good songs.

Even if you could make it to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena CA this Sunday, October 25, to see U2, the show is sold out, but you can watch for free since the show is being streamed live on at 8:30pm PDT (that’s 11:30pm EDT)

We’ve seen U2 live a number of times, and have no doubts it will be a boffo show. How the show will translate to a relatively tiny computer screen remains to be seen, as well as how well the servers can stand up to what will undoubtedly be a HUGE, worldwide demand.

We do live in interesting times.
