Strathfield Scene 11 “With moving foot bridges and two circular catwalks, only a veteran rock band like U2 can bring such an intense stage experience.” christmas special www.ourstrathfield.com.au U2 set to light up Sydney Olympic Park By Bernadette Chua It has been four years since U2 have graced our shores but the Dublin-based rock band will be sure to amaze their Australian fans with their upcoming spectacular performance at Sydney Olympic Park. Lead singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, drummer Larry Mullen Jr and bassist Adam Clayton will rocking out to fans at the ANZ Stadium. Bringing their fans hits like Sunday, Bloody Sunday, With or Without You, Beautiful Day and many more, U2 are set to deliver an electrifying concert. Not only bringing their timeless and influential music to Sydney, the rockers will be setting up a four legged steel structure which features a giant cylindrical screen for a 360 degree experience. The show has been hauled around the globe and is the biggest live performance in history by any performer or band. Designed by Willie Williams who has worked on every U2 tour since 1982, this architectural masterpiece was inspired by the Theme Building at the Los Angeles International Airport, much resembling a spaceship on four legs. Now it’s certainly not a U2 concert without messages of peace and unity. The band opened its European concert with a message from the former South African Archbishop, Desmond Tutu and a dedication to the Burmese Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. It’s all in day’s work for the Grammy- award winning band but unlike their 2005/2006 Vertigo tour, the band have put more of a focus on the music rather than their politics. Fans and reviewers from around the world have marvelled at U2’s performances and with no defined front stage, this means fans can watch the show from all angles. With moving foot bridges and two circular catwalks, only a veteran rock band like U2 can bring such an intense stage experience whilst keeping interactive with their audience. This stadium spectacular is a once in a lifetime opportunity – the U2 stage set has chartered new territory in the world of stadium rock. Having performed in 44 shows across 24 different countries throughout Europe, the United States and Canada, U2 started this groundbreaking tour in 2009 and will finish in 2011. But in true U2 fashion, whether you’re an avid fan or purely in lure for good entertainment, this concert will surely unite and excite the masses.
