Almost four years since Irish rock band U2 last performed a full concert. And as in 2011, it’s Canada again. The first of 36 shows in North America. 34 in Europe to follow.
As U2’s official website reports, what gave the show “an explosion of colour to the entire proceedings was the technological masterpiece of a giant construction suspended above the walkway connecting the main and “b” stages. Known thus far within the touring operation as the “divider,” it looks like a fence but serves as a superbly versatile backdrop for animated and filmic visuals, with giant images of the band, moving in real time, projected onto it to give an entirely new dimension.“
The stage set up for U2’s first arena tour since 2005 includes three stages and a large screen the band can walk inside.
