    Default Stage Design for 2012

    So I'm looking at some of the ticket sales and I'm realizing there hasn't been any info on any special stage designs. The past two tours have had specially designed stages to allow fans to be inside part of the stage or in the extended ego ramp. The ticket I've seen on Ticketmaster show an "end stage" layout. So are we to assume there will be no "exclusive" seating areas on this tour? I thought the VH ring logo on the '04 tour was an awesome idea. Based on the fact that their first gig was at Cafe Wha?, I'm thinking they're going to go with a stripped down stage design.

    Also, did anyone catch Dave telling the light/sound guy to turn off the fog machines? I'm wondering if that was another irritant for their voices or if he was concerned about the recording of the show being affected.

    If I had to guess I'd say it will be some kind of train/train station theme.

    Ring logo in '04 tour was a good idea but must have took a lot of assembly time, I'd bet on a more simple stage design this time.

    I HOPE that's it's just a plain old school rectangle with whatever set up they have. The 04 tour stage was a friggin mess. It looked cool on tv and pictures, but it made things way to small and cramped up there. Wasn't a huge fan of the S last tour either. If you're gonna have a platform, just have a platform. Oh also use the thing if you have it.

    How quick did all the front row VIP Packages sell out in both the 04 and 07-08 Tours?

    Are people keen if those packages are from $500-$1000???

    i really liked their 1984 tour design .... massive amounts of speakers, huge al kit riding the crest of the stage ... looked freakin killer .... more of that would be cool ... not a fan of those stages that have sections into the crowd that many bands use these days ....

    In saying all that ... I loved the simplicity of the Led Zep stage at the O2 Areana a few years back ....

    Quite sure the last tour they went pretty quick. Always a certain percentage of people with lots of cash to spend. That's why the VIP thing was invented.

    84 was my favorite stage setup of theirs. it'd be cool if they had some backdrops again like the Man With Hammer setup.
