Those are cool picts of the stage and that is "in the round" the stage is totally in the middle of the arena. Not like here. Not like the US shows. Stage still set up at one of the stadium

No U2360 gigs have been completely "in the round", or in the exact middle of the stadium floor.
All have the stage orientation towards one end of the stadium, that picture is deceiving as you can't properly see the depth.

Really? I thought the one in Poland had the stage in the middle?

Nope. Closer to the middle is best to describe it. Oklahoma's Memorial Stadium was the only show truly in the round.

That would have been hysterical if they had marketed it like that.  :D :D

Yes I was at two of the "Dublin U2 270" gigs, it did take a little from the overall atmosphere. WHo knows, we might get to see them to the full 360 at the new Aviva Stadium.

Nope. Closer to the middle is best to describe it. Oklahoma's Memorial Stadium was the only show truly in the round.

Yes, it was just about exactly in the centre, forgot about this one.
Willie WIlliams described it as follows:
"The stadium of Oklahoma University was only just big enough to accommodate the 360 production, with the stage and outer runway completely filling the football field. Larry was positioned directly over the centre spot, so this was as close to playing truly in the round as U2 is ever likely to get "

The floor area of the stadium was so small that it would only fit in if they had it exactly in the centre.
This was the only exception. It would be interesting to see some photos of Oklahoma as this was a unique setup.

There are photos of the Poland gig here, which cleary show it was toward one end of the stadium,

I was at the Rose Bowl and definitely not in the round. Stage is. But setting is not.
