U2 to Sell 360 Tour ‘Claws’

U2’s 360 Tour will come to an end July 30 in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. But “The Claw” — the alien-like, four-legged structure over the stage — will live on.

After the record-setting two-year-plus 360 trek, U2’s management plans to sell off three of the full, four-legged, 29,000-square-foot steel structures as venues unto themselves.

“It’s certainly our intention to see these things recycled into permanent and usable ventures,” U2 tour director Craig Evans told Billboard.biz earlier this month. “It represents too great an engineering feat to just use for [the tour] and put away in a warehouse somewhere.”

Evans added that the U2 camp is “now in discussions to send them into different places around the world and have them installed as permanent venues. Some major events have shown interest in these, from four different continents — and we haven’t even really put the word out yet.”
