Tulsa: U2 about the launch the Experience part of the Experience + Innocence world tour tonight in Tulsa. What can the core U2 fan expect? What will be different from Innocence tour? Will songs from Joshua Tree appear on the set list? What's Bono's political thoughts as the band ready for another summer tour season?
So as you head into the show initially it will seem very familiar to the fans that saw the Innocence tour. The stage pretty much is the same, of course, new features have been added and as the evening progresses those features will emerge.
AR! Augmented-Reality will be a part of the show. At one point the idea was floated that people should put their phones away and enjoy the show. It's about the music and connected with people. The people in the audience. The band starts off the evening with you and your phone. Be sure to download the application prior to your arrival.
The music. The band has been rehearsing the following albums
The Unforgettable Fire
Rattle & Hum
All That You Can't Leave Behind

Streets has been left off the list and so far it looks like this song will not be making an appearance this tour. As far as the list goes it's a gift to those hardcore U2 fans. Sit back and enjoy the music. Tonight the show will be streamed by some fans so that the rest of the world can take a few minutes to enjoy the experience.
