Stage new U2 tour revealed at Camp Nou

Yesterday, the stage that will be used for the new world tour of Irish rock band U2 was revealed to the press. U2 will open their new "360°" tour at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on Tuesday 30 June.

The stage will be located in the centre of the stadium and there has been tried to create a 360º vision, which is unique in an open-top location and has involved extraordinary engineering difficulties. The stage is 78 metres wide and 50 high, weighing 180 tons in total. The stage architect, Mark Fisher said he feels honoured that the lines of his creation have been compared to Catalan architect Gaudí.
