Looks a bit '360' doesn't it?

Another shot, with the video screens present.

Looks a lot like what U2 is planning.

Well, there's nothing new about being 'in-the-round'.  And after seeing the first pictures from the stage build, my guess is U2360 will look nothing like Britney's stage.

It looks like Britney's stage designers did a good job of making the arena show feel a little more intimate.  There doesn't appear to be a bad seat in the house.

Yeah that is true. The 2nd picture looks a lot like the stage/video screen from the 360 site though. Maybe offering some insight to what we might see.

You're right, those screens do look awfully close to what we've seen in the U2360 images.  It's amazing how far video screen technology has come since the mid-90's ... the PopMart screen almost looks quaint.

Good but this is an arena - it's no longer impossible to make a 360 stage.


Anywho, the actual must be crap considering the fact that Britney mimes :P

This looks more like the Vertigo indoors stage set up, with the exception of the in the round screens.

I've said it before and will say it again, U2360 stage is pretty much the same as the Vertigo indoor stage except in a much, much larger scale. Of course, we'll also get the huge circular catwalk during the new stadium tour along with the circular LCD screens.

The Britney stage set up picture is a good example of what the circular LCD screens will look like. Nice.

Looks more like Peter Gabriel's Us tour ('92-'93) stage.

Disappointing thread.

I thought this thread would be about their upcoming collaboration 'Baby, Please Come Home One More Time'.

Aw crap! I was just about to say that!

I heard that Britney's tour is sponsored by Virgin Mobile. I hope they don't make it too obvious.

Actually U2360 looks like it should've been the real stage for the Vertigo stadium shows.
