U2 360� Tour
On the website the ramp only goes around 3/4 of the stage leaving the inner "lottery" area open. And I assume that the band/Bono will want to actually walk along said ramp but there is currently no way to get there from the stage. I'm guessing that they will add catwalks leading from the stage to the ramp that will enclose the "lottery winner" area of GA.

Vertigo Ellipse (indoor NA leg 1) had two tunnels going under the ramp. One on each side of the front stage area. Areas would always have to remain open for fire code and small bladders.

Yeah, but this graphic had the ramp around the stage as a "C" shape instead of a full circle like on Vertigo. You're right though, that may be the in and out area with security standing there checking wristbands. You'd think they would make the ramp go over that area.

I still wonder how they plan to get from the stage to the ramp...

It is a spaceship... they'll probably have reduced gravity so the band can just bounce from stage to ramp.

Huge indeed...I'm a CAD person so I've crunching some numbers. I brought the photo into AutoCAD and scaled it to full size and drew in some lines I could gather measurements from. Here are the numbers I came up with. See the pic below for reference..

Yellow U2's stage area = over 3500 sq feet wow!
Magenta BACK GA area = 24,011 sq feet
Green Outside of circle area = 21,647 sq feet
Red Inside the circle area = 23169 sq feet


If you notice all the areas are very close in size..I don't think this is by accident. I really believe we will have 3 GA areas this time.

Enjoy

Interesting idea, and quite feasible. Would explain that square around the whole thing.

Actually, you based the shape of the Magenta "Back GA" rectangle on the NFL-mandated buffer, so the actual Back GA area is a little bigger. For comparison's sake, here is the image of the Soldier Field setup, without the football lines:



Good pick up on the square footage, though.

I suppose it will be first come-first served in terms of who gets into the green area, and then lottery to determine who gets into the oval?

maybe not a plane, but.... I bet they'll be thrown onto the ramp from one of those carnival rides that spins you around in circles

Great news! That means they can do back-to-back shows in different cities (like Oklahoma and Phoenix).

Here's hoping for shows in Oakland, San Diego or Seattle

I don't know if this question has been asked or not yet but do you think it'd help your chances to get in that circular area if you bought 2 GA instead of 4?
