U2 has hooked arm with TV company HBO. Two film projects, both premiering this fall, are afoot, writes Deadline. First up is a documentary that follows the Irish rock band behind the stage on their current tour “Innocence + experience”, which will have its world premiere on HBO on Nov. 7. The next week, the band plays in Paris – a concert that will be shown on HBO shortly afterwards.
– U2 continues to take risks, which made them one of the most enduring forces in rock ‘n’ roll. The combination of documentary and the following concert will give viewers the ultimate insight into this outstanding band, said Michael Lombardo on HBO.
U2 front man Bono, in the lead, was formed in 1976 and has released 13 albums. The latest, “Songs of Innocence”, came last year.
