U2‘s tours have been breaking box-office numbers for years, but a particular stop on the band’s U2360° tour stands out.

The Rose Bowl stop in Pasadena, California on October 25 2009 had a sold-out crowd of 97,014 people, setting the record for single concert attendance in the United States for one headline act.

The concert reached many more people: It was livestreamed on YouTube, and then was later released on DVD and Blu-Ray.

It’s hard not to notice the innovative stage design used for this tour: designer Willie Williams constructed a four-legged stage at the centre of the stadium, like some mechanical sci-fi spider.
