Two Questions: Who is that girl roadie and are there really cameras on the Ver. tour?

Ive been wondering who that girl roadie is who sets up microphones and stuff. She looks sort of young;; im curious on how you actually become a roadie for them.
And also on the Vertigo DVD extra they say that there are 'fan cameras' that the band can see and watch their fans. Is that true? and is it the same for the 06' tour too? I dunno how that works;;jw.

The roadie's name is Rachel. I can't remember her last name, though I know her full name is somewhere in the tour program.

Roadies don't usually start out working for big-name acts, or, if they do, they usually start at the very bottom of the ladder doing grunt work and have to work their way up. Some of U2's crew, like Joe O'Herlihy, have been with them from the start. Larry's drum tech Sam O'Sullivan has been with them for quite awhile, too, and Dallas joined Edge back in 1987 after working since the mid 70s for many other bands. Rocko's first job was with Styx, I think as a guitar tech, and it took him 20 years to work up to being assistant stage manager on the stadium leg of Zoo TV, which is when he started working with U2.

I just finished the first draft of a novel about the crew for a fictional band with about the level of fame U2 had around the Joshua Tree era, so I'm just showing off my roadie research.

It's not nice that you cropped Dallas out of your avatar

(just kidding )

Willie set up security cameras at intervals in the stage rigging and he controls the whole setup with a playstation controller. He was trying to talk the band into doing a webcast of a concert where you could only watch the concert if they could watch you on your own webcam.

I personally thought it was the pigtails with red ribbons that gave it away.


No a common male fashion accessory, unless....

Guys can wear pigtails with red ribbons. Most don't, but that doesn't automatically mean it's a woman you're looking at.

Did someone seriously say she's hot?

Good grief. She's fuglier than sin. And that's pretty darn ugly.

She's not so hot in that pic, but she was cute at times during the tour.

Her unofficial nickname is "tank girl"...there were a few posts asking about her during the tour.
