The music will be dark and dreamy, and hundreds of "magic" hookahs will be passed around the audience. No video screens needed.

Well, if they did play arenas in NA, then they could just rig it all to the roof. I used to work in IATSE and it can be done. Well, depending on the venue.

Yeah but the fact that Lanois mentions that there will be no pillars automatically suggests that he's talking about a stadium show. I think the US will be getting it as well...

He said one side will be favored but the "artillery and pillars" are out of the line of sight.

hmmm well they'll need something pretty amazing for the stadiums in that case- it's easily enough done in an arena but difficult to see how they could do something like this at a place the size of Croke Park- they can hardly put great big girders from one side of the stadium roof to the other

still it should ease the gold circle pressure because you'll be close to the stage anyway

When I think of a round stage, I always think of Peter Gabriel's Secret World tour and the stage for the second part of the show. This should interesting.
