U2 Part 1: Let Them Be-the Second Chapter

From their humble beginnings in a Dublin classroom to becoming the most influential band on the planet, U2 are without doubt the most important rock act of the past twenty years. Still one of the biggest and most flamboyant bands in the world after 30 years of delighting their fans, U2 released one of their very finest albums with 1991's 'Achtung Baby', but by the mid 1990s the band were in danger of slipping into irrelevance. Instead of allowing themselves to fade away, the mighty U2 redoubled their efforts, reapplied for the job of 'best band in the world' and entered the new millennium with the explosive 'All That You Can't Leave Behind'.

U2: Part 1

Formed in 1976 in Dublin Ireland, U2 consists of Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion). The band’s early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's history, they have maintained a sound built on melodic instrumentals, highlighted by The Edge's timbrally varied guitar sounds and Bono's expressive vocals. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal themes and sociopolitical concerns. This documentary includes extensive interviews and behind the scenes footage. Part one of the series U2. (59 minutes)
