Win U2’s Super Deluxe ‘Achtung Baby’ 6 CD, 4 DVD Box Set
In honor of tonight's (Oct. 29) Showtime premiere of the U2 documentary 'From the Sky Down,' the network is teaming up with Ultimate Classic Rock to give away the six CD, four DVD "Super Deluxe" box set edition of the band's seminal 'Achtung Baby' album.
The film, from 'It Might Get Loud' mastermind Davis Guggenheim, tells the inside story of the creation of 'Achtung Baby,' which marked a crucial turning point for the Irish band, who had conquered the world but also painted themselves into a creative corner with their 'The Joshua Tree' and 'Rattle and Hum' albums.
Somehow, after much struggle, the band managed to completely re-invent their sound and image and further solidify their place in rock history. Guggenheim was granted unprecedented access to the band's recollection of these events, including being played dramatic studio tapes revealing the creation of the mighty anthem 'One.'
It all promises to be a must-see film for fans of the band and rock music in general. If you can't watch the show tonight, don't worry, it'll be airing throughout the next few weeks on Showtime. Visit their official site to watch a preview of 'From the Sky Down' and to see the complete broadcast schedule.
The box set includes both 'Achtung Baby' and its follow up 'Zooropa,' as well as four discs of remixes, b-sides and a "Kindergarten" version of 'Achtung' comprised of early demo versions of the record. The DVDs include 'From the Sky Down,' a live concert from the Zoo TV tour, a disc full of videos from both albums and other assorted treats.
