U2's 360 shows take place under an outrageous new set known as the Claw.
At 164 feet tall, the Claw is twice as high as the previous largest stadium stage set, from the Rolling Stones’ A Bigger Bang tour.
Each of the Claw’s four sides has its own full-size sound system - each powerful enough for an entire arena. There are 72 separate subwoofers.
120 trucks cart it from show-to-show. In fact, there are three Claws because it takes so long to assemble/dissemble, another is already in another city.
Basically, it's the biggest stadium stage set you'll probably ever see.
Genius or folly? Discuss!
