2017 Joshua Tree Tour Stage Design

...Thought after all these years I'd swing back in and start this thread. Looks like an end-stadium box with a kidney, or spleen B-stage coming out to the GA field.

Surprised no 2017 Joshua Tree Tour section yet here (admins: ?!?) expect this thread to be moved there...

I am excited to say this is the tour I have been waiting 30 years for - love this!

Here we go!!!

Judging by the seating charts, the B-stage is bigger than the main stage - although that might not be the case.

The B-stage is shaped like the outline of a Joshua Tree

From the look of the stage and tour theme, I'm guessing that B-Stage resembles a 'Joshua Tree'.

GA looks like a free-for-all with no splits. Not sure I'm up for that. I like a little break in the crowd for sightlines.

Stage Design

The stage design looks different on almost each venue page in stubhub, im not trusting anything not official.

It's surprising they seem to go for 180 in stead of 360.
I thought 360 gave some HUGE advantages over 180:
- more people close to the stage and, more importantly,
- much better sound!!! The sound in Amsterdam Arena for example was incredible and I can tell you that the sound in the seats sucks in a 180 setup.

You would imagine U2 gwould go for these big advantages! Besides, they would sell 20% more tickets!!

I'm sure the relative small amount of shows has something to do with the stage setup this time. I don't anticipate there being a super awesome stage show this time given the huge investment 360 was. They would certainly lose money on any tour that is this small if they had to fab out a 360 stage. That setup was extraordinarily expensive. I don't have the numbers in front of me but they had to tour for a long time just to pay that part off (if they even did). From what I've seen, it seems like this was a quickly devised plan (by U2 standards) and they are planning to go back to the I/E format for another tour after this one.

Good point! Must be the costs then...
I was already imagining a huge Joshua Tree in the middle with PA system hanging on the branches of the tree :-) Now that would be kitsch :-)

the sound on 360 had less to do with the stage design and more to do with the advanced technology they used.

I think the main stage will resemble the original JT tour stage except the big tree mural will be replaced with video screens. B stage will obviously be shaped like a Joshua Tree.
