We’ve already seen photos illustrating U2’s monstrous 360º Tour rig, but something that can get David Byrne to brandish some blog snark is probably worth experiencing in moving images. And with sound too, why not. U2’s stage spectacular is exhibited here via video of a live take on “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight.” And you know what? It looks really impressive! Which is great! Because $40MM better buy you impressive. Theoretically the accompanying screengrab for this post would be an aerial shot of the circular edifice itself, but to me the most remarkable thing about U2 always will be the size of Bono’s head. (OK he’s easy to tease, but really you should see this thing play out. They really went for it.)
And if you missed it, there’s a somewhat maudlin but still sorta cute animated video for this track right here.
