Recommended for: U2 fans
Read in October, 2006

As a self-professed U2 fanatic who has seen them 60+ times (and who shares a May 10 birthday with Bono), I must confess a bias while reviewing this book.

Be that as it may, this coffee table tome would be of interest to anyone who is curious about how a large-scale rock concert/tour is conceived and executed -- it's a far more collaborative effort than most people realize, going far beyond the four members of U2 to include hundreds of designers and production staff.

For U2 fans, this book has a wealth of live performance photos taken from every stage of the band's career, from the late 1970's (before "Boy" was released) through the Elevation tour of the 2001-02.
