U2 & Live Nation Formally Offer The Claw For Sale

@U2, July 14, 2011
By: Matt McGee / @mattmcgee

 

U2 and Live Nation are really serious about selling The Claw. So serious that they issued a sales pitch news release today with details of the stage's availability (you can buy it as soon as the U2 360 show in Moncton is over) and even launched a mini website extolling The Claw's virtues.

Vancouver-based Panther Management is handling the sale, or at least doing the selling via its website. The company even suggests a few possible uses for the three Claws:

These highly adaptable structures can be re-engineered and, in effect, recycled to become new multi-use and headline grabbing entertainment venues or facilities including amphitheatres, civic plazas, corporate pavilions, world expositions or world cup stages, or something as unique as a bio dome or conservation lab.

Really, the highlight of it all is the PDF-formatted Claw presentation (1.3mb download) that any U2 fan is sure to enjoy, even if you don't have the budget to buy one. (Here at @U2 HQ, we'll be coordinating a bake sale soon to see if we can raise money to install one in the backyard.)

And yes, if you have a good memory, you may recall that the original talk was about donating the claws ... but then the idea of selling the claws made news a couple weeks ago.
