  4. The man with the suit
  5. Hydrogen Powered Rock'n'Roll

    If you were in the audience at the band's Tokyo show last month, maybe you sensed it was an unusually powerful night. Literally.

    During the concert at Tokyo's Saitama Super Arena on Dec. 5, Edge's guitar, Adam's bass, and the entire backline — guitar and bass amplifiers, audio effects and system control — ran on clean hydrogen power.

    Four hydrogen-cell-powered Toyota Mirai vehicles, parked backstage, stored the energy that delivered the power.

    The hydrogen fuel cells stored clean and renewable energy derived from solar power, with zero carbon emissions. U2 are the first international touring band to use hydrogen power at a show and the second Tokyo gig was the first sold-out show to use this energy source to power the backline.

    Hydrogen-powered rock 'n' roll is the latest innovation in the band's ongoing efforts to reduce and mitigate the environmental impact of global touring.

  6. I am listening to the IEM for the first show by thanksedge and am totally thrown by the looping piano part in Bad. It's very prominent as Bono speaks during the intro but you can hear it most of the way through. I never identified this element at any of the shows I saw on this tour or in any other recordings; is it something about this mix or did they try something new in Japan?
