[lastfm]U2[/lastfm] has announced it will bring the 360° Tour to Busch Stadium on July 17th. This marks the first stop for the band in St. Louis in over five years.
The U2 360° Tour was launched in support of the group’s 2009 album No Line on the Horizon. The tour setup includes a 360-degree staging platform nicknamed “The Claw” and has set a world record for the largest concert stage structure. By the time the tour returns to North America in May, it will have been seen by well over 4 million fans.

With a cylindrical video system of interlocking LED panels, and a steel structure rising 150 feet from the floor over a massive stage with rotating bridges, the band has truly created an intimate 360º experience for concert goers. Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360 design, which affords an unobstructed view for the audience.
“Take the largest stage and tour production in history, one of the greatest bands of all time with 3 decades of hits, add the world-class Busch Stadium, and you have the formula for an evening you’ll never forget.” – David Gerardi, Vice- President, Midwest-Music, Live Nation
