Happy Belated Birthday, Willie Williams!

I’m just now seeing this video – much to my chagrin – but HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, WILLIE WILLIAMS!  You all know Willie as the show designer and LD for U2 for the last decades.  Willie’s work reaches far beyond U2 – he’s done art installations, architecture, video, theatre, and other lighting and production ventures and bands across the years.

From both of us here at JimOnLight.com, happy belated birthday, sir.

Check out Willie’s portfolio site – congratulations on the 360 Tour!

Bono’s Laser Jacket on the 360° Tour

Hey Bono, quit shining your darned jacket into my eyes!

Ah, I kid.

Have you seen Bono’s laser jacket?  As if he wasn’t cool enough, Moritz Waldemeyer designed a jacket for the latest 360° Tour that has 240 lasers embedded in it.  Apparently they have been defocused for additional safety, because wouldn’t it suck to drop a kidney on U2 tickets and leave blind?
