On Friday the 2010 European leg of U2 360°  opens at Turin's Stadio Olimpico.

But with just five days to go, a strange light is throbbing in the dark recesses of the stage.

Only those who have seen it before may dare utter its name.

What is this mystery? (Think you know? Illuminate the rest of us ... in the comments below. )

See all 2010 Tour Countdown Clips and  in Zootopia check out videos and photos that fans are sharing ahead of the first show.)

Ultraviolet
This is also my favorite U2 song. I really loved the performance as well as the lighting during the 360 Tour. Sadly, they are not going to play it anymore during this tour. They will open up the encore set and replace ultraviolet with Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill me. I wish and hope I'm wrong. But, so far they haven't rehearsed the song in Turin. Maybe they won't play it due to Bono's back. Regardless, the thought of them not playing Ultraviolet makes me sad. Especially, since the performance of Ultraviolet has been one of the hightlights of the tour .

Without any doubt, this is Bono's microphone when he sings Ultraviolet, one of their best songs! Saw them in Paris last year, excellent show! Love from France ;)

microphone
There is no doubt: This is the steering wheel microphone Bono used when singing "Ultra Violet" last year. Does that mean that U2 want to perform that song again? This was one of the greatest and most intense performances last year. Hopefully Bono will take care of himself when he uses this microphone.

Swinging Mike!
Bono, just be careful using that one! It might be some dangerous back-killing swing thing from outer space. You've just recovered - and we need you! Can't wait for Frankfurt - see ya boys!
