AllMusic Review by

This DVD captures U2's 2009 performance at the Rose Bowl, which was simultaneously broadcast over the Internet via YouTube. With more than 97,000 fans present, the show set a U.S. record for the highest-attended concert by a single headlining act. No one is better equipped to handle such a massive audience than U2, and the band runs through 130 minutes of new songs and old standbys during the course of this show, playing beneath a giant, groundbreaking stage nicknamed "The Claw." It's a visually arresting performance -- there are moving bridges connecting the main stage to a circular ramp, not to mention a giant video screen that expands and contracts itself -- but the band continually draws your focus back to the music, which is the real highlight of this DVD. Although most die-hard fans watched the concert during its free YouTube stream -- which, incidentally, was the website's highest stream in history -- the group also released a tangible version of 360° at the Rose Bowl in several different formats, including standard DVD, Blue-ray, and a deluxe box-set.
