The U2 Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Tour has now ended, with 59 worldwide shows over 4 months.
Atelier One worked on the LED screen support frame with Belgian LED Specialists PRG Projects. The frame system, known as SpaceFrame, is made from carbon fiber which is stronger than steel but only 1/5 of the weight. The 3-dimensional SpaceFrame is made more efficient by reducing the effective length of individual members to avoid buckling. The result is an extremely lightweight, easily transportable touring frame.
