I had a dream once that it was shaped like a lemon. I'm praying it was a prophetic dream.

I think by the end of Vertigo they realized the need a change. The next tour won't be anything like the Vertigo tour, (or Elevation 2 as I call it). It will reflect the sound and themes of the next album. Who knows what that means, but we'll know in 2009!

The actual show (IE setlist and performance) were definately different and better than Elevation to me.

But on the topic of the thread. The Vertigo stage set up was basically Elevation Part II. I was a tad disappointed with it to be honest. They should have at least had another ramp at the end of the ellipse going out to the other end of the floor. That would have been cool.

I think the next tour the staging is going to be different from Vertigo and Elevation. I know Willie was talking about or toying with the idea of 3D video images. He wasnt sure the technology would be where it needed to be though by the next tour to employ that.

Looking forward to anything new. I was a bit disappointed that they used the heart/ellipse twice in a row for the US shows. Loved the other new elements, though.

I actually liked the whole ellipse thing because they were able to reach out to their audience more. Yeah they had the whole B stage thing too but i thought the vertigo/elevation setup was awesome.

I found this in Bono's notebook, take it for what you will.


Date is probably subject to change.

But in the round isn't new and innovative. It's been done for years. I went to a Neil Diamond concert in the 90's that was in the round with a rotating stage with scrim curtains that had laser images projected on them.

I've also considered the in-the-round thing, but it would be a little odd with Edge's backline.

they should've made it in-the-round last tour... I mean.. IT WAS the Vertigo logo...

and with the light-ball curtains, It would've made sense... anyone could've seen them...
