U2: Design Your Ultimate Tour
« on: May 31, 2011, 05:10:45 PM »
Okay, this is a little bit of goofiness among more serious discussion here.

What would be your dream tour for these guys now POST-360?

Here's what I'd like to see:

I'll bring up first the structure of it:

This tour would be designed to have a bit of surprise and unexpectedness to it. U2 would open the vaults of their tunes and recorded but never heard or seldom heard tracks.

Stage 1:
The first stage would be a selection of club dates. Yes U2 in clubs. It would also fit in with what Bono has talked about with their "club"(over the head? :p) album. The club dates would be announced the day of only with the internet and radio and social media. The stage setup would be simple and sparse. Just the boys, their instruments, and their amps. The setlist would be comprised of unreleased songs, rarely played, and some old favorites.
So a few legs of worldwide club dates over a few month period.

Stage 2:
Theatres and auditoriums. This is where the stage design would start to creep in a bit. Have a huge backdrop behind the band with some vidi wall. More b-sides and never played songs.

Stage 3: Arenas and Stadiums mixed.
Arenas and stadiums in one market to give indoors fans a chance to see them or both. Go everywhere. Play Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, etc. Egypt, Ivory Coast, the Caribbean, etc.
Elements of the show incorporating glass free 3D and holographic technology.

Retire to the French Riviera. Release an massive boxed set of all these unreleased and seldom played songs on a huge multi music chip set combo with accompanying video and 3D/ holographic footage.

Bono goes solo

The Edge teaches a Delay for dummies class taught at a local Irish college.

Larry wins an Oscar

Adam starts a clothing line

The End.

I'd like to see this....

2 nights per city. 1st night, large arena/stadium tour with the obligatory hits. 2nd night, smaller venue attended by hardcore fans who want to hear the band play lesser known stuff, and the band does exactly that   8)
