I will also be glad to see the back of that enormous screen. Seems very obtrusive to me.

This will be really fantastic! Many bands have done it including Metallica at the O2!

Thing is, I don't believe that U2 are really comfortable playing in the round. When Metallica do it, they truly play in the round, all roaming the stage so there is no front or back.

360 was the perfect opportunity for U2 to do that, but they still adopted a very conventional stage setup, all facing the same direction most of the time.

Be interested to hear their views on this.

I quite liked the physical stage setup for I+E/E+I with a stage at each end of a runway but the screens just didn't work for me.  Too often the screens actually stopped me seeing the band performing.  Personally, I would prefer a wider runway through the middle of the floor with two larger round stages at each end allowing clear sightlines for everyone with no screens blocking and allowing the band (and Bono) free movement to roam and increasing the physical "front row" for all those who want to queue and get a "rail spot" taking some of the stress out of those drama days too.
