It's A Beautiful DVD For U2

Boston concerts filmed for live DVD and TV special.

U2 are planning to release a DVD of their acclaimed Elevation Tour.

Ned O'Hanlon, the longtime U2 video producer behind 1994's Grammy-winning "U2: Zoo TV, Live From Sydney" and the 1997 TV special "U2: A Year in Pop," filmed the Irish rock band's performances at the Fleet Center in Boston on June 5 and 6, according to a spokesperson for Interscope Records.

The Boston footage will also be used in a TV special, the spokesperson said. U2 are working on a distribution deal for the show.

Chatting with fans on U2's official Web Site on Friday, guitarist the Edge called the special a "definitive TV live show" and said it may air around Thanksgiving. The DVD is due around the same time.

U2 are discussing a possible return to the United States for another leg of the Elevation Tour late this year, according to the spokesperson. The current tour leg wraps up Friday (June 22) in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Meanwhile, the Edge said the band is in the early stages of writing music for its follow-up to All That You Can't Leave Behind.

"There's a lot of beginnings," the Edge wrote. "We're constantly coming up with openings but until we get into a full few months of writing, I don't think we're going to come up with anything finished."
