’Officially Not Disappointed’

Sunday, 7th June 2009. London-Barcelona.
Two-and-a-half years into this project, finally the day dawns when I get to see the creation in the flesh. Heading to Barcelona, flying from City Airport, which is always a joy. Aside from being half the travel time to Heathrow, it’s also tiny so you just coast through the place. It’s perhaps on a par (...) (lire la suite)

Omelettes at dusk...

Sunday, 14th June 2009 Barcelona. Production build.
My bodyclock is all over the place now given the wildly irregular hours I’ve been keeping. I find myself craving omelettes at dusk and beer at dawn. All very odd. Got a call from Bono this afternoon. He and Edge arrive tomorrow and he’s simultaneously excited, terrified and confident about (...) (lire la suite)

Most important day so far

Tuesday, 16th June 2009. Barcelona. Production build.
Bono and Edge arrived this evening, which would put this into the category of ’easily the most important day so far.’ And... they loved it. I’d asked Bono (by text) to walk into the stadium and go straight to his mic position, to experience the wide open feeling on stage. This he did (...) (lire la suite)

When the real U2 show up well be in trouble

Wednesday, 17th June 2009. Barcelona.
Production rehearsals. Having arranged to move to the band’s hotel upon their arrival, I had to fit in a hotel change en route to the stadium when I got up this afternoon. The crew are staying at Mrs McGinty’s boarding house just off La Rambla, so I checked out and took a cab down to the Hotel Fabulous (...) (lire la suite)

’BETWEEN A SPACESHIP AND A CACTUS FLOWER...’

Bit of a party night tonight, celebrating the birthday of Bono’s daughter Eve, who was up on stage for Party Girl. Felt like the band were looser and more at ease on the stage, finding their feet as 360 gets underway. Were you at the show ? Some highlights from us below, add your own highlights at the bottom of the page.
1. The Space Ship felt (...) (lire la suite)

Monumentally exciting

Wednesday, 10th June 2009. Barcelona. Production build.
We’ve been plugging away on this first build for the past couple of days and we’re getting somewhere close to getting it more or less finished. One slight complication has been that tonight, right on the football pitch at the stadium, there’s a Nike convention. Interesting. Apparently it (...) (lire la suite)

The quiet and dark

The build continues to go well with most elements of the stage and structure now in place. The exceptions are the parts that needed modifying for which we are now waiting. The last 5% of the design and construction journey happens at such speed that it’s inevitable that the occasional mistake gets made. So many people are involved that it (...) (lire la suite)

1. We got to hear ’Crazy’ twice tonight: the band are shooting a video with Alex Courtez and tonight’s (...) (lire la suite)
