How was the view from behind the stage? Please post pics if you have them

Did anyone sit behind the stage or walk around and look out to see the view? I have behind the stage 3rd row seats and I was wondering whether the curtain really affected the view and how long it was up.

they must suck cause you have those damn light curtains coming down and blocking the view since they are all bright. Bono also didnt interact as much with them either. LIke ive stated in other posts, maybe it was cause the show is still fresh, but i hope he uses the catwalk more.. and he doesnt forget the people in the back.

Wrong. View was just fine even with the curtains. Bono interacted plenty.

Plus it's cool to see the audience from behind and read all the signs being held up.

What to say ? View was great, curtains weren't too much of an obstruction, Bono came around quite often, everyone back there had a great time. Plus the curtains are only on a few songs, and even then they rarely had ALL curtains down, sometimes it was only 2 or 3, sometimes all seven(?), but usually not all.

I had a blast, mediocre performance but LAPOE rocked something bad.

Boy does my spot in Philly (back corner on Edges side, 221A) look a lot sweeter after seeing THAT pic.

the rig hangs lower at this arena because its smaller with a lower ceiling. The larger arenas the lighting rig will be a little higher. There may be some trouble seeing the tip of the elipse from certain rear stage seats, but you will be able to see most if not all of the stage from most vantage points.

I might be wrong, but I think that this pic was taken between sets or before KOL. The lights were not a problem when I saw them on the last tour. The house lights are on, so I think the lights are just lowered. If you look at the other pic, they are not there.

I was 6 rows back behind the stage. It was my first U2 show so I probably would be blown away no matter where I was in the arena. That said behind they stage was amazing. Had a better view then most of the arena. The light strands do not block the view very much at all. I could see Bono clear on the other end of the catwalk. Obviously you miss out on some what goes on back there. But Bono came back a few times and Edge and Larry would turn around every now and then. Edges keyboard is at the back of the stage as well. Heres some pics I took from back there. Sorry they are so blurry, I was an idiot and forgot to charge the batteries before I came so it was hard to get a steady shot.










That last one is Kings of Leon but its the clearest picture as it was before the batteries crapped out.

Looks like you can see pretty decently through the light curtain.
