**SPOILERS** Tour: opening sequence
« on: May 12, 2018, 04:56:11 PM »
Hi all, about the show intro and the breathe in/exhale instructions and the MRI noises before LIAWHL: I’m wondering if the abstract black and blue images on the big screen could be from Bono’s actual MRI imaging? It would surprise me given how private Bono is about his recent health scare but it did cross my mind...

I think MRI imaging is a lot sharper than that. 

Not sure what the 'interference' is though. 

Gradually what the situation was with Bono is coming out - but we may not get the full story for some time, if ever.

Hmmm you might be right re sharpness of the image. Maybe I’m reading too much into it 😊

I'm guessing it's not actually his MRI, but that it is an artistic depiction.

This is what happened. A bunch of creatives were in a pub dreaming up some video ideas on napkins. Mexican and Indian food was being served and Willie had to go to the bathroom. He went and had a number 2 in the loo and used the napkin. They then changed the colour scheme in post production and magnified it 1000%. End of story.

Your story doesn't seem accurate because who mixes Mexican and Indian food?

If you'd just stuck with Mexican I would have bought it. That stuff really does a number on ya.

Willie mixes Indian and Mexican. It's a fusion restaurant.

I did this once... only once. Ended up in ER, with a nurse far too eager to offer help with suppositories

There is an article on @U2 main page on this. I believe discussion also has taken place elsewhere...

In Chicago, they added imagery of brain tissue.  So...not too far off and perhaps spot on.

Speaking of the tour intro, did anyone else hear the “What do you want?” sample from Zooropa being repeated during the Noel Gallagher song just before the start of the show, or was I imagining things? This was at Chicago 2.

While you hear these loud MRI sounds you can see brain scan images (I think in Chicago 1 the first time).
No idea whether these are real MRI scans, could be CGI as well, and no idea whether these - if real - might be his. But they look pretty much like brain scans do:

I heard it in Omaha. Just reminded me of how much better the Zoo intro was.
