"U2: A Year in Pop" will also include a "history-mix" of footage and music that encompasses the band's career to date, behind-the-scenes film of the making of U2's new album POP, and preparations for the massive PopMart stadium tour--complete with a sci-fi disco supermarket setting. The hour culminates with a portion of U2's opening night performance.
