Of all the albums in the Irish band’s prolific careerAll That You Can’t Leave Behind was a monumental success for U2. The 2000 album, the group’s tenth to that point, featured hit singles “Beautiful Day,” “Elevation,” “Walk On” and “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of,” ultimately selling more than 12 million copies worldwide, hitting No. 1 in 32 copies.

Today, Oct. 30, U2 commemorates the 20th anniversary of the album with a lavish reissue, and in fitting fashion it’s available in a variety of different formats.

2-CD Deluxe Edition (Click here to pre-order from our Rock Cellar Store)
2-LP Edition (Click here to pre-order from our Rock Cellar Store)
5-CD Super Deluxe Box Set (Click here to pre-order from our Rock Cellar Store)
11-LP Super Deluxe Box Set (Click here to pre-order from our Rock Cellar Store)

Produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois and recorded in Dublin and France, it won seven Grammy Awards and was easily one of the most successful albums of U2’s career, so releasing it in such a format makes a ton of sense.

For the VERY dedicated fan, the 11-LP box set features just about everything anybody would ever want:

  • a 32-page hardback book from longtime friend and collaborator Anton Corbijn featuring many previously unseen images of the band along with hand-written notes by Anton, plus a double-sided poster.
  • 39 additional bonus tracks, including remastered B-sides (“Summer Rain,” “Always,” “Big Girls Are Best,” “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town”).
  • out-takes from the album sessions (“Levitate,” “Love You Like Mad,” “Flower Child”), as well as the track “Stateless” which featured on The Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack; plus an acoustic version of “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of.”
  • the complete 19-track live audio of the band’s Elevation Tour performance, recorded at the Fleet Center, Boston, Massachusetts in June 2001. The set includes 7 tracks from All That You Can’t Leave Behind.
  • a collection of 11 remixes which features four previously unheard versions recently unearthed in the band’s Dublin archives: “Walk On (Wyclef Jean Remix),” “New York (Carnegie’s Deli Mix),” “New York (Superman Kicks Ativan Mix)” and “When I Look At The World (Picante Remix).”

Stream the Super Deluxe, which spans more than four hours of music, below, via Spotify.

U2 will also host a special concert & Q&A live stream event today, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT to celebrate the release:
