    U2 plan to station "the claw" – the four-legged structure being used on their 360 Tour – as a permanent fixture at a venue once the tour is complete. The band had three of the steel structures built for the trek and they are speaking to various promoters about installing each at different spots around the world. So the 360 tour will live on forever; or at least a prop from the tour will! How's that for being "green" and recycling?

    "It's certainly our intention to see these things recycled into permanent and usable ventures," U2 tour director Craig Evans told our pals at Billboard. "They're something you can put up on a waterfront and become an instant skyline icon." An icon for rock fans, sure.

    U2 manager Paul McGuinness also commented, but to Rolling Stone, saying, "They need to be slightly re-engineered so they'll have a roof, a rainproof roof covering the stage. We're actively marketing them at the moment, and I have every hope that they will find new homes as festival stages in three different locations around the world."

    Where would you like to see each of "the claws" placed?
