Had the best parts of the Elevation stage
-crowd inside ellipse
-Bono and band using the walkway to extend themselves basically halfway out the floor of the arena
-One camera on each band member at *most* times
Built on it tremendously
-Lights in motion around the ellipse instead of stationary
-Light curtains were one of their most original ideas ever, and I say that including the claw stage and ZooTV. Gave them the ability to COMPLETELY change the way the show was both lit and perceived (example: lamps descending for OOTS).
360 in second place solely because it reinvented the modern idea of the PA system, and the screen was admittedly pretty dope.
"It is extraordinary that you can find 700 billion dollars to save Wall Street and the entire G-8 can't find 25 million to save the lives of 25,000 children who die every day from preventable and treatable diseases. That is mad."
- Bono, 2008
