U2's Iconic "Claw" Now on Permanent Display

posted by Kenny Young -

Via Pitchfork.com  In 2009 U2 launched their massive, 360 World Tour.  The Stadium-sized production would globe hop for two years, 110 shows and gross over $786-Million in tour revenue. One of the most striking features from this tour was "The Claw". Hailed as one of the largest stages ever constructed, it spanned 165 feet and weighed 190 tons. It took days to set up. Fans will now be able to revisit (or visit for the first time) the "Claw" in its new home: Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Draper,  Utah. The facilities CEO and marine biologist Brent Andersen said, “We are excited to bring this iconic monument to its permanent home in Utah. This landmark will shine a light on our mission to inspire people to explore, discover, and learn about Earth’s diverse ecosystems.”

Below is a cool time lapse from the 360 Tour. Safe to say, those Roadies earned their paychecks on that tour.....10x over.
