The Set List: U2’s 360° World Tour

U2 going full circle with stadium show: Aidin Vaziri | Even for a band known for its grand gestures, U2’s 360° world tour feels like a monumental undertaking. Forget the oversize white flags and malfunctioning neon lemons of the past, this time the action takes place in “The Claw” – a 150-foot circular stage featuring a massive exostructure that takes four days to build, weighs 400 tons and requires 48 semitrucks to haul between cities.
