Ticketmaster showing Stage Design for Tour...
« on: December 03, 2014, 01:48:05 PM »
This is what the Ticketmaster website is showing when you access the "U2" stage map...

The stage seems... long.

Thoughts?

I'm in Los Angeles, but I'll be in NYC on my birthday, July 18 for a conference... Trying to decide if I should get tickets.

This can only mean one thing. A long 'bar' through the centre of the arena, with a conveyor belt around the edge. Band members can either step into the centre to do their thing or be carried around the outside like delicacies at one of those sushi bars.

my guess is they start on the smaller stage similar to the late 70's early 80's then make their way to the larger stage

Yep, each venue will have a unique stage which you can see at Tickemaster. All stages/venues will get the GA ticket holders close. RED Zone will be near the main stage set up, but Bono, Edge, and maybe Adam can walk the entire length of it.

Rob, that San Jose set up looks different than most w/ that circle B stage. Where did you find that pic? It's not the one at Ticketmaster?

I actually found it poking around on the Tour announcement link AtU2 posted today on the front of their web page.

Kinda hard to see which is the front of the stage and which is the back.

I'd say the RED Zone is the front of the stage where Larry will be and all the equipment. Then the other three could move.

Carrie Underwood lifted off her set stage in a gazebo attached to the ceiling and for 45 minutes she glided across the length of the arena. FANtastic! Everyone, everywhere in that arena could see her close. It was just her and 2 guitarists in the slowly moving gazebo and the rest of the band remained on the fixed stage while she hung from the ceiling singing her heart out! Unforgettable!

The stock Ticketmaster diagram of the stage setup is very deceptive.  Thanks Rob for posting that picture from the SAP Center website.  That does clarify what the stage footprint will look like.  When I first looked at the Ticketmaster picture, I thought "Oh Cool, the stage is going to be one, long, wide catwalk."  But now that's obviously not the case.  At least now we know that the entire GA area, except the RED Zone, will be equal access.
