The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the unveiling of the new state-of-the-art Foster Theater and to celebrate the new addition they will be screening the film U2 3D from Tuesday, October 27 through Saturday, January 2, 2010.
As you can probably guess from the title, U2 3D is the venerated Rock Hall inducted band U2 in the first ever live-action 3-D Film. The concert was shot in South America during the final leg of the band's Vertigo tour and from most accounts I've heard and read, it is indeed quite an impressive experience. The band certainly was in fine from during their 2005 stop in Cleveland.
