The mini orchestra bit is frustrating.

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

Hmmmm...

I would LOVE to see U2 play with a string section/mini-orchestra. The versions of "Original Of The Species" from Milan on the Vertigo tour are fantastic. Did you hear "Bad" from the Zoo TV tour in London when Jo Shankar played violin on stage? Epic.

I've never heard of that version. Do you happen to know what date it was from, I'd love to hear it.

Imagine songs like The Unforgettable Fire with an orchestra?

Or Sunday Bloody Sunday with the electric violin part?

Endless possibilities to hear songs played in ways we never heard before!  :)

They really should drop Sunday Bloody Sunday.

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.

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.

Of course, I just find it hard to understand that no one managed to screenshot it or recall seeing it at all on the homepage. Whatever the case may be, I'm sure it will be posted on the website very soon.

I was hoping they were not going this orchastra/accoustic business.  Not a big fan of it and surprised they are doing it as people will be royally ticked off if they paid 300 dollars and half or maybe the full show is accoustic.  This is not going to go well and after the whole Apple backlash, I'm sure they don't need anymore bad press at this stage.  You think they would have warned the fans before tickets went on sale that they might be getting an accoustic  night instead of a full blown rock show.  I really hope this is false.

according to some sources I know they have been hinting the use of a mini orchestra just like the ones used for all th TV promos for the whole tour - something U2 have never done before..

When Bono says it will be different each night I think he is talking about the set list.  I doubt one night will be rock the next acoustic.

I think we will be surprised by the setlist.

The stage presentation did show a mini Orchestra
Sigh

U2Start have also confirmed the U2 Innocence & Experience Tour Presentation on U2.com via their Twitter feed.

It was funny the other day when I saw Facebook fan pages posting the confirmation of the tour stage and referencing this thread as the source! That begs the ?, what source does U2start.com have? I couldn't tell for sure from their tweets. ;)

I wouldn't fret so much about a mini orchestra being included in the stage set up. As long as U2 are still full band rock and roll, it will be an enhancement and maybe a few song arrangements a la the acoustic sessions. Let's not go down the rabbit hole that every entire show will mainly be acoustic.

I cannot imagine Edge not doing his pedal wizardry for the majority of a show nor Larry on drums. That would be nutso!

Breathe, people, breathe.

U2Start also saw the presentation on U2.com but also sighted there was a PowerPoint style presentation too..

Wow! I hope they put that back up there! Particularly, if they roll out all the possible new dates. Something with such detail could produce even more interest and ticket sales.

Being that it was a PowerPoint, I do wonder if someone in U2 world just made an oops. Seems likely.  ;)

This video says 93, but by the looks of the lads, it seems more like the TUF era so 84/85? OK, it is the audio likely, but the vocals don't match the lips, so it seems someone just used the 80s video?

Off-topic, but 08-12-1993 is a great bootleg with a rare performance of I Will Follow on ZooTV, Bad with violins, a heart-breaking Sarajevo link, Bono going apes*** on Bullet The Blue Sky, Zooropa and Babyface, McPhisto trying to call Lady Diana, etc.
