A very personalized concert and most of Ireland was there. As the site of one of their earlier album's recordings, they invited their 20 year devotees back to where it all began - and because Bono buried his father a day previous, emotion was especially high. He really personalizes this concert to thank his family and his fans. There's references to politics and European sport that Americans might not understand, but can definitely appreciate. They include in their set an early single from 'Boy' that Irish folk would have known from their early local pub tours, but was not a state-side single. Otherwise, the set was quite similar to the Elevation tour, which is why I didn't give it perfect stars. There is no terrible U2 performance, and with this 'Sort of Homecoming' after 20 years, it's filled with toe-tapping, sing along hits. Bono has acquired a gift, maybe from Paul O, to have the crowd vocally mix his song into the next to enliven its intensity. Very effective and definitely worth $16 - it's like you're there, but without airfare and stay, you've saved a couple hundred quid. I am sad that I missed this piece of history live, but it's the next best thing.

Had I been lucky enough to attend U2¿s first-ever headlining performance at Slane Castle in Ireland on Sept. 1, 2001, chances are I wouldn¿t have enjoyed the show nearly as much as watching the amazing new DVD release ¿U2 Go Home ¿ Live From Slane Castle¿ chronicling the Dublin quartet¿s amazing show in front of well over 80,000 faithful. After all, watching the DVD puts you in a front row seat and the audio mix is perfect! For those of us lucky enough to have caught U2 at multiple dates in 2001, this concert matches many of the emotionally riveting shows in the post-September 11th period. U2 and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band are simply the two greatest live rock acts out there right now. Nothing against U2¿s ¿Elevation Tour 2001 ¿ Live from Boston¿ DVD release, but this concert puts you smack in the midst of the audience excitement while keeping you in tune with the band¿s sharp set featuring classics such as ¿Out of Control¿ and ¿New Year¿s Day¿ as well as modern greats like ¿Walk On¿ and ¿Beautiful Day.¿ Extras include a digital presentation of the 1980s video documentary on the making of ¿The Unforgettable Fire.¿

Better than Elevation: Bono's voice is much stronger. While visuals are less live-looking, movie- like use of hazy light and close-ups is more interesting. The song selection is better. No embarrassing cuddling with teen during With Or Without You. ONLY benefit to Elevation: unique rendering of The Fly

25+ years after their start, U2 still hold strong. Whether it's in the USA or their native Ireland, U2 command their set list and the crowd. 'Angel of Harlem' is a nice touch in the middle of the show, along with 'Out Of Control.' 'Bullet the Blue Sky' looses some of its punch in comparison to the Boston Elevation show, but still an awesome concert footage.

What makes this DVD especially superior is Bono's voice, which is actually in good form here and not strained as in 'Elevation.' Also, this video's movie-like approach to dramatic use of light and close-up make it more visually interesting, though not as detailed in a live-like atmosphere. The setlist is also more representative of their career and better

I date myself here but I loved that they had a song from "Boy" on this DVD. Having seen the band only once, "Pop tour" I wish I could have been at this concert! Creative theatrical performance with unique delivery of multiple classic songs captured with terrific camera work. The special feature "Unforgettable Fire" documentary was great too - U2 Pre-Joshua Tree awoke a few memories!
