U2 prepping tour in Barcelona

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Time is winding down for the opening night of U2's highly anticipated world tour, "U2 360". In less than two weeks, the Irish rockers will be embarking on their first global trek since its massively successful "Vertigo" tour.

U2.com has been providing updates on the stage production and the band's preparation for the June 30th performance in Barcelona. And with the way things look in Spain so far, fans are going to be getting their money's worth.

When it comes to the talked-about "Claw" stage design, Production Director Jake Berry said, "Seeing it here is something else. I think jaws are going to drop when people come through those doors on opening night."

Willie Williams, the Show Designer who oversaw the construction of the Claw, said seeing the structure go from design to reality is "pretty extraordinary."

Mark Fisher, the tour architect, believes that this unique design will help bring U2 even closer to their fans.

"I think it will take people's breath away when they arrive, a real statement that U2 are in town," he said, "But when the band come on stage it will disappear, it will all be about the communication between the band and the audience."

With that kind of statement, U2 fans are in for the time of their lives.
