The lighting/video gear is pretty cool. There are new spandex video screens, aluminum lighting trusses, intelligent lighting, LED lights, Par cam lights, smoke, strobe lights, etc. There is SO much color and movement it will really take your mind on a trip in a wild and cool direction. Our hope is that you won't just be "watching videos" but you will be hearing and seeing/feeling moods change from song to song. We LOVE U2's music, but we love the moods they are able to create through their songs. This will help us deliver that type of vibe to you!
The new sound gear is great too. It is very full range and will take our good sound and make it great. We will also be creating a brand new HD Promotional video in the coming weeks.
