Part of the audience interaction is to do with texting and crowd video content that you can submit prior to going to a show. You'll be able to upload a video to u2.com. The audience video is then used in the visuals for the show. Steve said the concept was to extend Zoo TV which drew on TV content from around the world - this is the fans content. Real life. They envisage fans making the soundbites / visuals this time around. Willie is going to be busy!!!

Also, Steve said the tour is not called after any of the songs on the album but a lyric of one of the songs.
I wonder if that lyric is in Unknown Caller?

@Brianvox: thanks for all the info. Great research!

They toured to Australia with Zoo Tv so I am hoping they don't miss us and am praying your information is wrong or they change their mind.

Spring stadium tour of US planned.
so that means OR a very short leg in the US (esp considering t would be 3 nights a week...) OR you are talking about spring 2010?

I'd rather they toured everywhere and concentrated on the music than having another extravagant massive show with gazillions of effects. I want setlist variation and great Bono vocals. Please no more stupid costumes or visual overload.

They're perfectionists and great showmen - I don't think you'll get your wish

I'm expecting visual overload AND great vocals.... Setlist variation is the question mark....

The upside to this is the band will be in a great mood every show having just come from seeing their families, Bono's voice won't be all haggard after playing 4 nights in a row.

The downside to this is less shows = less tickets = $$$$$ tickets

I guess I'm a little pissed because Australia may miss out, AGAIN.

I second that, they cant miss us out again! why should the usa and europe get it every time and we miss out?!?!?!
