Throwback Thursday: U2 Concert Tour Designs

In honor of the viral trend of "Throwback Thursday" (#tbt) and U2's upcoming tour for their latest album, we assembled a collection of the band's concert tour designs, featuring the talents of show director Willie Williams and architect Mark Fisher of Stufish. Spanning ten years, this gallery reflects on the 1997 PopMart Tour, 2001 Elevation Tour, 2005 Vertigo Tour, and 2009 U2 360° Tour​. Click through the images to read about the designs and gear.
