Live Chat With Willie Williams, U2 Visual Guru
SPONSORED BY ACT ENTERTAINMENT
Starting back in 1982, and including such mega tours as Zoo TV in 1992-93, PopMart in 1997-98, Elevation in 2001, and U2 360° in 2009, Willie Williams—and his Treatment Studio—has been the designer and creative spirit behind the look for U2, collaborating with the band as their visual territory continued to expand. Now, 40 years later, their new show, U2:UV Achtung Baby Live has taken Vegas and the world by storm, opening the ground-breaking performance venue at Sphere, and creating a media storm in the process. Massive immersive video, a stage inspired by Brian Eno’s LED turntable, stunning visuals, dramatic lighting, and an incredible performance by one of the most venerable rock bands in the business. Join Willie Williams, Live Design, and ACT Entertainment in a live chat to find out what went into the heart and soul of this mega project.
