U2 360 Tour Presented by BlackBerry, Revolutionary Production Design Revealed

U2 has announced the starting dates for their new world tour.  This tour is a return to big stadium shows since the 'PopMart' tour.  However, they are trying to revolutionize the stadium show once again by creating an intimate, hi-tech, 360 degree show that has never been attempted.  Here is some of the tour information from U2.com:

The U2 360° Tour (presented by BlackBerry) will visit 14 cities across Europe including dates in Milan, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Paris, Nice, Dublin, Chorzow, Berlin, Gelsenkirchen, London, Sheffield and Glasgow before finishing at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on August 22. 

The European tour will be followed by dates in North America beginning at Chicago's Soldier Field on September 12th, 2009.

In September and October, U2 360° Tour will also visit: Atlanta, GA; Charlottesville, VA; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; Norman, OK; Phoenix, AZ; Tampa, FL; Washington, DC and Vancouver, BC. Complete Tour and ticketing information to follow.

Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative360° design which affords an unobstructed view for the audience. U2 360° also marks the first time a band has toured in stadiums with such a unique and original structure.

To get an animated look at the stage, take the jump over to the concert site.  Now if only we didn't have to deal with Ticketmaster.
