Review: “Live from Paris, 1987,” U2

Posted in Review with tags , , , , , on July 30, 2008 by 30daysout


U2 exploded after The Joshua Tree was released in 1987 and became the biggest band in the world. A monster world tour followed and from that jaunt, a July 4 concert titled Live from Paris has just been released (I found it on iTunes, but it’s available on other digital sites), and it shows the band in top form.

Songs like “With or Without You,” “Trip through Your Wires,” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and “Bullet in a Blue Sky” sound fresh, and “I Will Follow” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday,” “Bad,” “Pride (In the Name of Love)” and “New Year’s Day” are some of the best live recordings of these songs that I have heard.

This 18-song collection (which was also released in DVD form as part of the deluxe edition re-issue of The Joshua Tree) captures U2 before the arrogance of the Popmart and Zoo TV periods and shows one of the world’s greatest bands during its most creative and exciting periods.
