Riding With U2: Watch the Band Prep For 360 Opener in Chicago

By |

Follow Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. as they meet a throng of screeching fans outside their Chicago hotel, make their way to local radio stations for interviews ("The scale of the production is much bigger, but it boils down to the four of us out there," the Edge says) and journey to Soldier Field, where U2 kicked off their epic 360° Tour. If you haven't seen the band's giant "Claw" stage glowing in a football stadium, don't miss the last 25 seconds of this clip. Rolling Stone was on the ground at the opening-night show in Chicago, too — read our report and flip through photos of their show.
