U2 is performing tonight at the Giants Stadium in New Jersey for its 360° Tour which critics have called one of the best stadium shows of the last decade, according to Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot.

The show has a spectacular staging installation consisting of a circular stage underneath a 90-foot-tall four-pronged canopy that resembles a spaceship landed on the middle of a stadium.

Above the stage is placed a cylindrical video screen that weights 54 tons and took five days to build. The tour is dubbed 360 in honor of the circular stage.

The Irish band is expected to delight its fans with about two hours of music including songs from its album No Line on the Horizon which is the centerpiece of this tour.

The 360 Tour kicked off its concerts in the United States on September 12. This is the first time U2 performs in North America since 1997, the band's manager Paul McGuinness confirmed.

The band is also scheduled to perform in this venue on Thursday.  Tickets were available on Live Nation website as of Wednesday 5:00 pm EST.
