Is this a preview of the new tour?

The last minute of this appears to pretty much be the Superbowl ad, so it has to be asked; stripped down layout with big back-screen, catwalk,  laser lightshow, etc.... is this what the new tour will be like? After all, we know they want to be indoors, we know McGuinness said it would be different and new, and I doubt they get this set-up for one ad...

Streamline the tour, make it more intimate, indoors multiple nights at one location? I'm good with it.

I can only imagine what they could do with an indoor tour given the technology available now.

Bono goes on about "speed of sound" and they've got their fans waving glow sticks around like the crowd at Coldplay's Paris gig.

Disturbing.

But I can get behind the concept of an arena set with the wall of light and the gangway into the audience.

My girls thought that was so cool and at our Coldplay concert in 2012 it was wristbands. Each ticket holder had a different colored blinking light wristband that would only light/blink to certain songs and to the beat. Very cool.  Hence, a new audience, TD. That is what U2 is also striving to do and like it or not, that new audience is most likely the youth.

I would like it if they went with the digital screen.

I imagine it'll be along the lines of what NIN's doing now, unless they go in-the-round.

Feck the stage - it's all about the music, man!

If you ain't got the music then a good stage design is like covering a turd in gold leaf.

Those aren't glow sticks.

To be honest I didn't know what to call them, I've not been a kid for some time now.

Adults refer to them as flashlights.

They light up nowadays?  Is that so you can see what you're doing in the dark?
