Looks like a backdrop. They may still be using a screen along with a backdrop, though.
My guess is that the backdrop will he used during the 11 Joshua Tree tracks, as a throwback to the old tour, even if only for some of the songs.

That's actually a brilliant idea. Seriously. I wouldn't mind if U2 did this.

Yeah....that would work out, but i'm curious to find out how they incorporate other songs. I like the sort of "flashback" idea........

I hope "jonnydee" makes the cut with the NRG management, because I talked to"godsucog" on Instagram last night and he got canned for filming the two videos. He no longer works at NRG Stadium.

Another stage worker posted a pic with the stage. I can't tell now if it's a screen or backdrop like in 1987. It certainly looks like a backdrop in the photo he posted. Instagram username is: itsmejonnydee

Posted 9 hours ago in Houston. Said he was bringing the stage down. They must have 2 stages this tour since one is already being made in vancouver

That stage will probably be on its way to Seattle soon. Can't wait!

Yikes, did he sign a contract before?

IDK?

Told me they let him go.

Is anybody going to go down to the stadium this weekend to try and get a glimpse of the band, or a listen to the rehearsing?  I am tempted to!!

I did that when they rehearsed at Rodgers arena for the Vertigo tour and at the Pacific Coliseum for I & E. Rodgers was a waste of time. No real good spots there to hear them. When we could hear it was Edge playing the opening riff of Elevation for about 1/2 hour straight (An Tha's version of hell). Pacific Coliseum was good as it's at the PNE park (5 minutes from my house) and as it's in the park there was no one around (security did come by but we just found another spot). We heard them rehearse Streets, One Step Closer, With or Without You, The Troubles, and a few others. BC Place may not be the best place to hear them. It's a big stadium and a busy area. I imagine security/police will be asking people to move on.

NEW SPOILER! U2 HAVE LEAKED THE STAGE CONSTRUCTION. I see lots of suspended speakers. That's the venues right? U2's not going to do that at open venues

Venues don't hang speaker​ wracks like that. That's for U2
