U2’s ‘Experience + Innocence’ tour is Europe bound at the end of August. The band have just released an accompanying app to compliment the live event. The ‘U2 Experience’ app will offer fans an ‘augmented reality experience’, either at home and while attending their concerts.
The app lets users to hold their phone in the air and point it at a 100 foot long LED wall that will act as part of the band’s stage set. Doing this, will trigger a ‘specially curated audio visual experience emerging through your mobile device’.
The app can also be used at home by pointing their camera at U2’s latest LP cover for Songs of Experience to ‘get a taste of what’s coming up in the show’. However, according to NME’s Lisa Bowman, after pointing the phone ‘at an online image of their album, nothing happened.’ The phone then crashed, so a warning, if you wish to use this app that you’ll need plenty of free storage space for it to work correctly.
The app is also pretty big at 223mb which actually comes with a warning when you try to download it, best to use wifi if you want it. It is available for download on iOS or Android.
