U2’s the Edge finds the Edge … of the Stage
While the worldwide tour is only hitting arenas (not the usual stadiums), fans should still expect a spectacle like none other. As Neil McCormick of The Telegraph puts it, “The sight of a giant King Kong-sized LED Bono reaching out to encompass band mates performing inside a caged stage suspended from the ceiling might suggest that U2 no longer even know how to think small.”
Though, it does appear that the stage might be a hair too small for guitarist the Edge. During their encore at Rogers Arena, the Edge actually fell off the stage. “The Edge got so close to the crowd that he fell off the stage ... I don’t think most of the 20,000 strong audience even noticed,” McCormick explained.
You can watch the Edge take the tumble -- which almost happened in slow-motion -- in a fan-filmed clip below:
No need to worry, though; U2 shared a picture of the scraped band member with the caption, “Didn’t see the edge, I’m ok!!”
U2 will return to Rogers Arena tonight (May 15). You can find their full tour itinerary here.
