U2 Zoo TV Live from Sydney in September

Island Records have announced the UK DVD release of U2 Zoo TV Live from Sydney for 18th September 2006. Available on DVD for the first time this release not only includes the legendary live show but also comes with a bonus DVD, featuring live tracks, mini-documentaries and the famous Zoo TV "Interference".

Directed by David Mallet and filmed at the Sydney Football Stadium, Australia in November 1993, Zoo TV Live From Sydney has previously only been available on VHS.

From its dazzling opening moments featuring hundreds of video monitors, Zoo TV was an elaborate multi-media show designed by Willie Williams; inspired by the video age, cable TV chaff, 24 hour hard news - it set out to satirise the mid-90’s media overload.

Originally filmed on analogue video, the film has been transferred to a digital format with the pictures re-graded and cleaned. Great care has been taken to maintain the original look by simply enhancing it with an added degree of sharpness and contrast unavailable when originally filmed. The DVD also features PCM stereo, Dolby Digital 5:1 Surround Sound, and DTS 5:1 Surround Audio.

This DVD will be available in two formats, a single disc concert only set and a special double disc limited edition format featuring a bonus special features disc. This special features DVD includes never seen before footage from the "Video Confessional" - a room in the outdoor stadium where people went to announce their secrets to the world, alongside a series of mini documentaries including "Trabantland" and "A Fistful of ZOOTV”. All of this and more…the bonus disc also features a number of surprises for the discerning U2 fan.
