Hoberman’s Trransformable Screen for the U2 360 Tour

Constructed of stainless steel and aircraft aluminum, the display is made of 888 LED screens, with 500,000 pixels spanning across them, providing concertgoers with clear and visually stunning images. It has a screen area of 3,800 square feet, and weighs approximately 120,000 pounds.

Hoberman Associates has teamed up with Innovative Designs to create the Expanding Video Screen, a transformable elliptical screen for the U2 360° Tour. Based on Hoberman’s patented Iris structure, this “fusion of architecture, stage scenery and extreme technology” stretches upwards to form a 7-story cone around the band, displaying footage directed by the Irish artist Catherine Owens.3106_9fbae580e00a5a81708551012dc06bd5thumb_3164_4918a988e2eb12118ac2982adbf08f22
