First U2 Gig!: The stage (“The Claw”) is amazing! Apparently, things rotate/move, and the conical screen above the stage actually expands and can change shape. Geeeeeking out over this thing! Check it out!
At night, with show lights and amazing screen…
During the show, they had an actual satellite hookup with the International Space Station to talk with the astronauts – only U2 could pull that off… 🙂
Here’s The Claw in its various states:
That rainbow thing is a video screen! The screen shows patterns or it shows the performance to help everyone see…the band looks like ants!
The screen MOVES! It can stretch down almost to the tops of the band’s heads!
Here’s what it’s like during a show:
Those two gray things at the top that have 6 rows each are actually speaker banks! The whole Stage can be a bunch of different colors, or all one shade.
