The documentary on the second disc was directed by Erica Forstadt with Ned O'Hanlan also acting as producer. The footage used in the DVD was shot live from two nights of the band's four concert stop in Chicago. The second concert was held on Bono's birthday, 10 May, providing a ceremonious backdrop to the concert.
Footage of the stage crew celebrating his birthday can be seen on the bonus second disc. Although the recording was edited and cut between songs, the songs themselves are rarely edited; mistakes made by the band members are left in the DVD.
During the bridge of " Elevation ", Bono skips a few words when he is forced to clear his throat.
