Look closely at the bottom of this pic and you will see the members of the band!

"The Claw" creates an innovative 360° design which affords an unobstructed view for the audience everywhere in the arena.

At 164 feet tall, the Claw is twice as high as the previous largest stadium stage set, from the Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang tour. "Theirs would fit underneath this one," says U2 show director Willie Williams.

Sound System: Each of the Claw's four sides will have its own full-size sound system - each powerful enough for an entire arena. There will also be 72 separate subwoofers.

It was assembled in pieces around the world, the set will be made of solid steel - 120 trucks will cart it from show to show.

The original members of X have reunited for a live tour. "Total Request Live!" has the band empowering fans to actually pick the set list for each show. Voting is open now on the X's TRL tour website: X TRL Website

“I’m looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great frontmen of our generation, but a true artist”, Ashba

We'll see how long the lovefest last once these guys hit the road!
