LIVE WEB CAM INSTALLED AT MAGNETIC HILL CONCERT SITE Public is invited to follow site build process online
Wednesday, July 13, 2011 – Concert-goers can now keep an eye on the action at the Magnetic Hill Concert Site as crews begin to build the largest concert set-up Atlantic Canada has ever seen. U2 will be coming to Moncton on the last date of their record-breaking 360o World Tour on July 30, 2011. To capture the excitement, a live-eye camera has been installed at the concert site and can be viewed at www.magnetichillmusicfestival.ca (Web Cam – Live eye on Magnetic Hill Concert Site).
Construction has already begun at Magnetic Hill with the grading of the field in preparation for the unique and gigantic “claw” and the building of the temporary grandstands are well underway.
With a cylindrical video system of interlocking LED panels, and a steel structure rising 150 feet from the floor over a massive stage with rotating bridges, the band has truly created an intimate 360º experience for concertgoers. Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360 design, which affords an unobstructed view for the audience.
When the U2 360o stage is dismantled for the final time, the most successful concert tour of all time will have been seen by over 7 million fans at 110 concerts in 78 cities in 30 countries.
Tickets for the July 30 show are on sale now. Reserved grandstand seats are available at $99.50 and $199.50, while general admission tickets are $65.00 each. All tickets include taxes but are subject to applicable service charges. Purchase all tickets online at www.Ticketmaster.ca and www.Livenation.com with some general admission tickets available at Needs Convenience Stores across Atlantic Canada, the Moncton Coliseum Box Office or charge by phone at 1-888-720-5600.
