Hands down: Winnipeg.

It was basically a pub gig for the band and the Claw dwarfed the stadium.

Anahiem was awesome for the claw, it seemed like it fit in that stadium nicely.  I could be wrong but I think that was the first baseball stadium they played at?  I know Oakland is a football/baseball venue.

Anaheim definitely was a great fit for the claw but truthfully Rose Bowl was spectacular. It was just perfect for that venue. Although it was a nightmare trying to get to your seats but once you finally did it was incredible.

I really like the idea of the claw in baseball stadiums.  It allows more seats to be closer to the stage because baseballs stadiums are more circular in nature than football/soccer stadiums.

Gross, hopefully that roof opens

Of course... it was pi**ing down with rain. But funny given they couldn't shut the roof due to the stage...

I think it looked cool in soldier field as there was a great view of lake michigan right outside of my nosebleed seats  ;)

However, it definitely looks the best in the stadium that is on the cover of the tour programs, Belin I believe. It's stunning

which would make the seats further away, not closer.

The acoustics for Montreal were unreal. The quality of the sound was superb.

I think it would average out, with your average seat being closer

Totally agree , Montreal the sound was superb, I had friends who lived quite  a few miles away and they could hear Bono singing  and the music from the Hippodrome , my co-workers heard it from their homes who also live far away  it  was that good . The best so far for sound and performance. The claw also looked great , being under it in the red zone., and from the outside .

I don't have a photo from '09 but the Claw looked so beautiful in the night sky at the Meadowlands. That was the old stadium. I think it will look even more beautiful in the new one. I'll let you know after July 20th  ;)

I just hope there is no bomb threat this time so the fighter planes don't have to circle up above us ! I could see those fighter planes, I could see those fighter planes. They should have played Bullet the Blue Sky!  :D

The Claw probably looks beautiful at night in any of the stadiums though I do agree, some are more stunning than others.

Montreal Acoustics were spectacular indeed.  Having seen the show in Toronto in 09, Montreal was way, way better.  On a totally different planet.
