MUSIC NEWS - As U2 winds down the most successful concert tour ever, the big question is what to do with their huge stage. Answer? Sell it ! Yep, they want to sell their stage, all of it, including The Claw, the device that moved around and resemble one of those arcade game "claw" devices.
If you're in the market, and have lots of cash (no suggested price mentioned, btw), visit PantherManagement.com/theclaw. A brief description; “Designed by Bono, Willie Williams and Mark Fisher, the massive stage structure is an industry first. Tried and tested at over 110 concerts in 78 cities in 30 countries, the in-the-round transportable structure was designed to support up to 185 tonnes and engineered to withstand high winds while sustaining seismic loads. While on tour, “the claw” carried a cylindrical video screen able to open to a size of 14,000 square feet and designed to provide fans with the best possible concert viewing experience ever. It was an overwhelming success.”
The last stop of the band's 360 Tour is on July 30, 2011 in Moncton, Canada. Let's us know if you do buy it, and how you plan to put it to use!
