I'd like to see Adam have a solo. :)

I agree  :D. And I'd like to see Bono crowd surf :].

I would love to see Gavin and even Guggi stop hiding in the sound room and come to the stage to do something with the boys!! They played with the Virgin Prunes many times so I'm sure the funky trinity could come up with something great for the crowd. If I see that live, I can die a happy StrongGirl ;) :) :) :) :) :)

A good way would be to take out the ramp or b-stage so Bono won't be moving around too much and can focus on his delivery of the songs.

Cheers,

are you kidding me?  I was lucky enough to get 15th row tickets next to the ramp.  I was 15 rows back from the main stage, but only 3 rows from the ramp!

also on the last tour I was about 50 rows from the stage, but with the ramp on the floor it allowed me to see them closer about 25 rows up.

I think the ramp or B stage allows them to be more intimate with the fans and I love that about them!!

U2 always campaign for social justice.

Is it justice to their fans who lined up many hours, to have fans who lined up much later but get a better view of the band because of the b-stage/heart tip/ramp?

Is it justice to these same fans to have U2 waste precious seconds setting up and moving in and out of the b-stage when this precious time could have meant half a song or one song more per concert?

It's time to let that social justice principle trickle on to their shows.

Just a thought.

Cheers,

J

Bono on a wire - David Lee Roth style and Larry's drum set on a hovercraft that flies over the audience (jk)

Seriously, I want them to put in an ellipse around the perimeter of the whole stadium floor (a low-lying ellipse that doesn't obstruct anyone's view).  Think of it - the Horizon tour - what could be more perfect than the ellipse going around the "horizon" of the entire stadium.  For a lot of the show, the stage is in the same spot and they can do some of the same stuff on the main stage, but for those fans who are at the far end of the football field, they know that for at least a couple of songs Bono and Edge or even the whole band are going to head around the perimeter and play right in their faces.  They could have Edge and Adam head out on the ramps too and have Larry's drum set revolve so that he would play to the fans behind him for a few songs.  Maybe there would be a ramp down the middle that joins up with the one around the perimeter and puts Bono almost anywhere he wants to go.  He wants to sing from the middle of the GA or run huge laps - no problem.

Aside from that, maybe the boys will play the Wanderer or Ultraviolet for me.

I think Larry and Adam should sing a duet. 

That would be a moment to remember.  :D

I want to see Larry have Bono on a leash (to keep him away from the edge and the Edge). We were talking about this on another thread.

Either that or a very large child harness.  ;D
