1. hmm, sounds like a legit explanation.

    still, this stage looks sort of clunky to me or like made of papier-mâché? idk how to explain it.
  2. Let's remember that they haven't even finished building it yet.
  3. How cool would it be if they ordered to build a fake stage in Houston just to piss off and are secretly building the real stage somewhere else?
    Trolling level God.
  4. All clips are gone from the original Instagram account so it doesn't seem to be fake.


  5. They have so many people counting so many things in in their ears these days that they wouldn't even hear him !!

    They are building it in Brazil!!!!!!
  7. The stage is up rehearsals underway
  8. I have a feeling those clips on insta were a few weeks old. If willie follows his stadium formula (from past u2 and bowie tours), they'll build at least 2-3 sets to leapfrog each other between dates. Also -- its very possible they have set ups in various locations right now (unused arenas) to do all the master lighting and sound design, stage management, experiment with different fx stuff etc. Often tour directors will shape out 3-4 various narrative arcs for a show based on what the artists want and then start tech rehearsals and live sound design closer to the show (as in now) -- in Vancouver the i+e rehearsals were done in a separate location from the venue they played there. I'm an ex set+lighting designer and have am just drawing on assumptions only. I also suspect the instagram "where is the band now" trolling may be intentionally time delayed (:
  9. Someone prob got so fired
  10. It's hard to date the particular clips, but it is very possible that this may be the first chance somebody had to take footage.

    Also, the band's official instagram tends to post material in real time. I was curious if these were pictures posted at a later date and found their posts at specific locations tended to correlate well with reported meetings/broadcasted interviews. For example, Bono's instagram posts of his visits to a refugee camp were posted on the same day he had a live interview with GMA from the refugee camp. Obviously whoever manages their instagram could be manipulating the whole thing, but I find it somewhat unlikely.
  11. Bono was just on the BBC with Chris Evans he said the album will be played in sequence
