LOL! Actually I guess I can kind of make out the side lines, I'm not sure.

Here's another picture:

I guess we'll know on Sunday if that other picture is really the stage setup. Personally, I think it is, and it's great!!!

Well, I got this pic from a legitimate source: entertainment tonite, ie: etonline.com. So, guess they didn't do a full check into their source of the pic or something..

I am still excited! and getting my vcr ready for sunday..

Sicy, wish i had a private jet girl, then we could be off to new orleans..lol...but no $$...so no jet..guess we have to settle on the tv...

Peace!

But the Turin Italy show had that GIANT heart, and it was brown.

My guess:

Legitimite picture. The production staff always practices on a different field than the super bowl is actually played on...

I would guess it is a a stadium in New Orleans (maybe a college etc...) so they can rehearse the show while not in the Superdome.

My other guess is that yes, they are going to use the heart stage, and yes Mark fisher will be involved in creating movable lights to get onto the field.

If you go to his website, www.stufish.com you will see the links from last years super bowl that he worked on. I would guess that they will either use the same lighting rigs as last year as they were successful around the heart, or he has thought up something completely new...

That is not Turin stadium, and that is not the stage they used there...

It is definately not the Turin Italy set up. As pointed out the heart was much bigger and brown. In addition the stadium at Turin was huge. This appears to be a small college or even a high school stadium. Since the only other outdoor venue on Elevation was Slane which this is clearly not I would imagine this is the stage set up for the Super Bowl.

I agree with Blue Room. If that is a heart in that picture, who would they put in there? If I'm not in it, then they shouldn't have a heart at the Super Bowl.

Yeah, I think this is legit. There was a contest on Billboard that the winner got tickets to be "in the heart" for U2's superbowl performance. Remember last year they let a couple thousand people onto the field to surround the stage. they even gave them fake signs to hold like "Marry me Steven" like anyone wants to touch Steven Tyler with a 19 foot pole.

Who will be in the heart for this one is a mystery to me.

no kidding! If I've watched the superbowl since then, it's been for the commercials.

Let's root for the Patriots since they're from Boston and the underdogs

KROQ is also giving away tickets to see U2 at the Superbowl but I can't stand the music they play.

I don't have the best eyes in the world, but I think that's an Elevation Tour pic taken before the show. Correct me if I'm wrong.

It definately looks to me like its taken outdoors and on a football field.

Wow, how I'd love to be there.
