i wish they utilized the screen more on 360. the thing was amazing. a shame it was only down for a handful of songs.

360 is a strange tour to me. i love it, and the 2011 shows were some of the best shows i've seen by U2.

but it left a little on the table, and i don't think they maximized the potential of the stage.

still, an incredible spectacle. i didn't get to see PopMart or ZooTV, so the Joshua Tree and 360 shows are the only times i've seen U2 in a stadium to date. while the JT screen was pretty bad ass, doesn't top the staging spectacle of 360 by any means.. not that they were even out to do that.

I can't imagine Bono pulling the whole "turn that off" thing in 2017. You can't tell people to take out your phones for one song (Bad, create the starlight) and then bitch at them to put them down later.

Right, he likes to yell at people to put the phones away first, and THEN ask them to take it out to sign up for the One campaign.

I've been to Seattle and Santa Clara, and the number of people filming with cellphones was a bit annoying (GA). But now at the South America concerts it seems that EVERYBODY is filming. I'm a bit worried about my upcoming concerts.

It's annoying, but it is what it is in 2017. Alas.

Yeah I only put some of the South American footage on just to see what the crowd were like. There always wild. But it's just awash with mobile phones. Very poor.

I think its probably a bit annoying because usually you see the Mexico and SA shows much more lively and cell phone free than the US shows.

Sometime soon, people are gonna start bringing head mounts (like VR headsets) for their phones so they can record concerts and watch them through their screen, hands free!

I think I'm done with GA for this reason alone. Having your field of vision constantly interrupted by everybody's hand holding up a phone is very annoying. It was so bad at the Cleveland show that I ended up moving to the back of the floor area (plus I had to use the bathroom), and it was a much better experience back there. At the Indy show I had seats, and it was great. Maybe less energy than on the floor, but I could see everything, wasn't sore as fuck, and I was able to grab dinner before the concert and get there whenever the hell I felt like.

The only way I'll ever do GA is if they come to my city (Columbus), then I'll be able to line up early and get a rail spot.

I try to ignore it and accept it for what it is, except in Houston there was a group in blue tshirts who kept taking selfies whenever a casual recognisable song was played urgh.
