TYPE OF STAGE
Informally dubbed “The Claw,” the stage is so big that only sports stadiums can contain it—well, some of them can. Cowboys Stadium near Dallas will raise its enormous scoreboard next month to accommodate the 164-foot-tall rig. The Claws—there are three of them that leapfrog from venue to venue—weigh about 180 tons each and take about a week to assemble. ( Look for the bright red trucks and the line of tour buses as they come into your town)
Recession ? Really U2 would never know that. 65, 000 fans have purchased tickets which already has set a single day attendance. It was pretty easy to add a second show at that point. All 24 EURO shows sold out and grossed $188 million. The tour is expected to cross into 2010 and could surpass the Rolling Stones “A Bigger Bang Tour’ at $588 million. Making U2 the highest grossing concert in history.
Buys guys with a musical score for Spider Man about completed, The Edge will be featured in a documentary “It Might Get Loud,” along with fellow guitar icons Jimmy Page and Jack White.
What wll they play
Your guess is just as good as ours. If we look over he set list from the EURO tours we have some what an idea. However all bets are off until the first song. Lots of fans sites have databases of set lists we have posted a links to a couple of them. We know the standards if we can call them standards will be.
“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” “Mysterious Ways,” “One” and “Where the Streets Have No Name.” Each night’s encore in Europe was the same: “Ultraviolet,” “With or Without You” and “Moment of Surrender.”
It going to Snow
Remember Izzy from “Grey Anatomy” ? Yea well she made Snow Patrol as household name. They have been opening up for the boys on the EURO tour leg and have signed on for a couple of US dates. MOst fans sites have agreeed that Snow Patrol put on a great show, which take that for what its worth.
