Designer Willie Williams shared with Live Design this behind-the scenes look at the building of the set for the upcoming U2 360° tour. This shot from April 15 shows an inverted section of the main support structure, currently under construction at StageCo in Wechter, Belgium. Williams notes that test builds of the structure commence May 12, while simultaneous test builds of the video screen, designed by Chuck Hoberman and Frederic Opsomer, take place in the Antwerp Sportpalais, while the main stage is being built at Tait Towers in Lititz, PA. “And it’s all very big,” says Williams.
