National Geographic Entertainment Presents U23D In Chicago for a Limited Time
The critically acclaimed 3D film, U23D, comes to Chicago for an exclusive showing this Independence Day weekend.
From July 2 – July 5, 2010, U2 and 3D fans alike will have the chance to experience one of the world’s most popular bands. U23D is a unique cinematic event that movie critics say “is perhaps the most technologically pristine 3D concert film ever made.” Edna Gundersen of USA Today gave U23D four out of four stars. She writes: “… in many ways [U23D] delivers an experience that's even better than the real thing.”
Moviegoers will see this larger-than-life rock band “live” from seven different South American concerts during the group's Vertigo Tour–as well as share in the ecstatic joy and pulsating energy coming from the massive rock show audience.
U23D puts fans exactly where they want to be at a concert: as close as possible to the performers. You get so close that you can see Bono “eye-to-eye.” The sound quality is impeccable, and when the beat for “Bloody Sunday” starts, you will find it impossible to keep from bouncing in time.
This 85-minute film features a set list that includes such other famous U2 songs as “Pride (In the Name of Love),” “Where the Streets Have No Name,” and “Beautiful Day.”
Proceeds from theseU23D shows go to preserving The Field Museum and its collections.
