Dream Out Loud. Take an idea and turn it into action. An idea that lies at the heart of the special connection shared between U2 and their fans for more than 37 years. A relationship so unique that, in 2001 at a stop on U2’s Elevation Tour in Anaheim, the seed was planted to make a film about it. Five U2 tours and 17 years later, that idea matured into the film “Dream Out Loud.” This film tells the story of U2’s fans and their extraordinary connection to the music, the band and each other. It’s about U2 fans. Their experiences. Their stories.
How do you tell such an ambitious story? You have the fans tell it themselves, because they are the only ones who can. So a plan was set in motion. The idea became action in February 2017 with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film, all based on the idea that it would be made by U2 fans for U2 fans. The U2 fan community did not disappoint. On March 1, 2017, hundreds of U2 fans answered the call to back “Dream Out Loud,” and now the idea was real.
Production began in April 2017 in Las Vegas, and followed the 30th Anniversary Joshua Tree Tour from its open in Vancouver through the band’s homecoming in Dublin. Along the way, we visited 25 cities in 5 countries, interviewing more than 200 fans from 25 nations, ranging in age from 12 to 72. Fans from the very beginning, fans seeing their very first U2 show, fans from all walks of life.
This film is a conversation, with 200 people. These experiences all weaved together bring to life the incredible journey that U2 fans have been on since 1980. Where we have been and where we will go. We Dream Out Loud.
