U2 is back for round 3 in North America. Fresh from South American dates in Brazil and Mexico, the band is ramping things up as they wind down the 360 spectacular. The stage has to be the most grandiose rock stage ever. Surpassing even the Rolling Stones for impressive staging. The U2 website now has “fan cam”. Pretty cool. Scary detail. Say “cheese”. Check out “I Will Follow” from Baltimore. Great “End of the World/I Will Follow” clip, “Beautiful Day” and “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” performed in Nashville.
