the interactive presentation also showed a mini orchestra to the right of the stage

An orchestra? As in strings and stuff?

You mean a small orchestra, or a regular-sized orchestra made up entirely of dwarfs and midgets?

We need these details.

Pretty sure someone isn't being truthful here.

I agree, I cant see any reason for U2.com to post the stage setup and then take it down immediately after. Not to mention it seems that no one anywhere else in the world has either said they have seen it nor taken a screenshot of it.

Very interesting. If that's the case, they certainly didn't sell tickets based on center court/center ice being the best available. There was a definite bias toward end-stage/b-stage like the San Jose map that's still on the SAP Center website.

I wonder if most of the lower bowl seats near the center of venues have been set aside for the travel and VIP packages. The wording on U2.com starts with "Best seats in the house..."

I think that's partly true, Matt.  But the $600 VIP packages were skewed to one end of the arena.  And bbison is correct, there was a bias in pricing between one end of the arena and the other.  Boston lowers on the end we thought was the b-stage were/are available as part of a $240 "party" package, but there weren't any of those available on the opposite end (so we assumed those were "rear stage").  And what to make of the Red Zone placement now?  Very strange....

I am going to the July 18th MSG show and Section 107 is dead center and mine is VIP.

why would he lie about it?  to gain fame and fortune amongst the anonymous forum fans?

it's not uncommon at all for companies/organizations to mistakenly publish information they never intended to make public on their websites.

I think it's a bit harsh to accuse someone of such a post.

Whatever the stage may be, as long as I have a view where I can see the band that isn't obstructed in any way, I'm all good.

I'm going to guess they made sure of this.

It's U2.com, where the right hand never seems to know what the left hand is doing. I can imagine someone prematurely posting something that hadn't  been approved by the powers that be, and it being taken down.

after the 360 show...did you hang around during the take down of the stage...and see all these little people climbing down from the legs of the claw?

they must have been there the whole show!!

Each corner of the claw had a spotlight operator strapped into a chair who was hoisted up about half an hour before the band came on. I know that some of these were lorry drivers for the touring production , as we had a beer the night before the Paris shows  and they were in the pub and we ended up talking.

The mini orchestra bit is frustrating.

Again, I really want to see U2 play. Not Bono and Edge plus mini orchestra.

Hmmmm...

Agreed. No thanks to Burt Bacharach mode. ELP tried it on their Works tour. Epic fail.
Is this rock & roll?!?!?

I brought compact binoculars to 360 and indeed there were definitely workers in/on/within the claw structure the entire time! :)

they were amazing to sit there the whole time...

need to remember to get some of those compact glasses....

I'm glad they sat there and NOT me!  ;)

I take my compact binoculars on vacation and to concerts. :)  They are terrific!  They are Bushnell 8x21 (378ft. at 1000yds.) Oh, there is an ink stamp that one can see at a certain angle under the adjustment barrel. That number is 13-2514 YM China AL. I just googled that # and this came up. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login They look different than mine, but the magnification seems right and the price. Mine are at least 10 years old, so I think this is just the current model of mine.

Small and powerful! They are no bigger than a compact digital camera.
