U2's Achtung Baby & Zooropa Re-Issues Coming Soon: Rolling Stone

U2 is planning to re-issue both Achtung Baby and Zooropa later this year, according to the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine (with Katy Perry on the cover). Author Brian Hiatt writes that the two albums are "likely" to be released separately along with a deluxe box set that will include both albums and additional audio/video from the Zoo TV era. Says U2 manager Paul McGuinness:

"There will be multiple formats. If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value."

Last month in Winnipeg, U2 simultaneously rehearsed for its Glastonbury performance and shot an Achtung Baby documentary with director Davis Guggenheim. The Rolling Stone article mentions the documentary, but doesn't specifically say that it will be part of the Achtung Baby/Zooropa package.

Rolling Stone also reports that U2 is working on an app "for the iPad and other tablets that could be involved with the releases."

The article says the re-issued albums will be released "this fall," but gives no specific date. (thx to Reilly for the tip)
