The 360¡Æ tour is so groundbreaking that we created an entire online microsite just to cover it. No amount of print pages could have contained all that needed to be catalogued about this tour, in the same way that only certain venues can actually accommodate the immense production. From Willie Williams¡¯ visual designs, to Stageco¡¯s build of Mark Fisher¡¯s set design, including the massive and imposing Claw, to the incredible engineering and creation of the multi-faceted video screen by Chuck Hoberman, Buro Happold, Barco, and Innovative Designs, loads of technology was developed just for this tour. Williams¡¯ innovative lighting design included PRG¡¯s then brand-new Bad Boy luminaire as the primary illumination source. It¡¯s a marvel of concert touring in-the-round that has to be witnessed to be believed. Yet another of Pollstar¡¯s awardees for Most Creative Stage Production, it¡¯s still going strong, with dates into 2011.
