Edge and Adam's amp setups Innocence And Experience Tour 2015

Well, I went through The Tonight Show promo footage, and got a brief screenshot of Edge's amps for the tour.

The main old Vox AC30 is not there, neither is the second old AC30 that Edge has used in the past,but two White AC30s are. These look like the amp that Bono used on 360, as well as the amps that Edge used on The Graham Norton Show when they played The Miracle last year.

Looks like there are 3 Fender Tweeds on top too.

As for Adam, there are no stacks of Aguilar cabinets visible, yet alone any clearly visible amp. What is he using?

These promo shows can tell a lot, but we always have to keep in mind that they're using a different scaled down rig. If he got some new amps Dallas is probably dancing with joy that he no longer has to keep all these old falling apart war horses going. No original SDD-3000's, no TC2290's, no Korg A3's, now maybe no more decade old Vox amps, it would make his job a lot easier. This is shaping up to be the most radical departure in the Edge's equipment since his first foray's into midi controllers in the 80's.

Adam is using this (i would say): Ampeg Heritage B-15N

Ampeg: Heritage Series - B-15N

Yes, I think he used that on The Graham Norton Show back in October. Is he using multiple ones, as one is surely not enough for a big arena,unless of course he has it mic'd with loads of microphones?

Interesting now he seems to have gone back to Ampeg after years with Ashdown and Aguilar.

It must only be a recent change, as it looks like he used Aguilar cabinets in the video for 'Invisible'.

If need be you could perfectly play an arena, or a stadium with just a single mike or DI output. After all, it's not like you have to rock the whole arena with a single amp.

Some musicians stick to brands for life, and some have like celebrity marriages with them.

Is it possible that edge is using these new amps for only promo shows and he is going to use his real ones for the tour? I feel like looks can be deceiving as electronics of his old ones can be rehoused to he newer chassis. Or his can be cloned to match the specs. Hm....

These are not Promo show amps, these are the real ones for the actual tour shows.

This is not footage from a promo show, it is the sneak peek footage from the Tonight show that was shown on the show that gave fans a taste of what the tour would be like.

Plus the 2 AC30 3 Fender configuration is the configuration that Edge used on both 360 and Vertigo, hence the reason why there are that many amps on stage.

The promo show rig for The tonight Show was much smaller, with only one Fender Tweed amp. This is not detailing the amps used on the promo show for Angel Of Harlem, Beautiful Day and Song For Someone on Friday, this is the amp set up for the tour, which starts in 2 days.

Adam used the Ampeg for all Promo-Shows. It's a flip top and easy to handle. In studio I saw an Aguilar ag500 dual channel with a 112s cab. And tomorrow we will know what he is using on a big stage. I think he is still using Aguilar there on stage.
