Perhaps this will go with your backyard gazebo?
On July 30, when U2's "360 Tour" finally ends in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, you will have a chance to buy the massive stage -- all 28,287 square feet of the structure affectionately known as "the claw" (yeah, this sucker is so big it has its own website, panthermanagement.com/theclaw).
Designed by Bono, Willie Williams and Mark Fisher, the stage was used in more than 110 concerts in 78 cities in 30 countries, according to a statement from Panther Management, which is handling the sale. Here are some ideas for usage:
At a world exposition or Olympic Games, this is an attention-grabbing, high-profile structure that also claims a unique piece of history.
As an exhibition hall, the complex could be fitted with multiple floors and ceilings anywhere from 10 to 100 feet.
As a prebuilt, engineered enclosure, the structure is easily transportable, requires minimal installation time and has proved to be extremely rugged and dependable.
