The cranes arrived at Gillette Stadium and were hard at work just hours after the Patriots pulled off their dramatic 25-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills, and after being there all week getting ready, the set is now built and U2 will be rocking Gillette Sunday night.
Sunday night’s show is the first of two nights that U2 will take the stage in Foxboro for their 360 Tour, with another show scheduled for Monday night.
From all accounts it should be quite a spectacle. The band has reportedly commissioned a 150-foot steel structure housing a 54-ton video screen, and the scene is said to be one of “the most intimate stadium shows you’ll ever attend”.
For anyone going, the lots at Gillette aren’t scheduled to open until 3pm on Sunday, and the same time on Monday. So plan ahead – as stadium officials are doing their best to spread the word so that not too many people arrive early and end up being turned away.
In the meantime we’ll leave you with this interesting interview with
U2’s Tour Lighting Director Ethan Weber, along with this video from the tour featuring one of my favorite songs, “Unforgettable Fire”
