BLOW US … away, Bono.

… away, Bono. Away! USA Today reports on U2’s upcoming ‘mind blowing’ tour. Bono comments on festival seating: “We’ve been trying to do this in the United States for 10 years,” says Bono. “Believe me, this took a lot of work. Our shows in Europe have been a very physical experience. People go to the show to dance and jump up and down and get away from their office, their school, their factory floor. Watch what happens when you see a floor full of U2 fans going up and down. It’s incredible. This is the way we do business everywhere in the world. It’s only in the USA that we haven’t been allowed to.”

Asked about safety, he says: “Because of safety regulations, we’re not going to be able to fill the floor the way we do in Europe ,” he says. “I don’t think there are going to be any accidents. The only thing that I’m worried about is that the floor will look empty.
