“The two things you can’t have up here are vertigo and a need for stability.”

U2 bassist Adam Clayton is giving me a tour of “the barricage”, a 29-metre long, double-sided LCD screen that the band climb inside of every night of their Experience and Innocence tour.

The walkway spans the entire length of Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome, linking the main stage and a smaller, circular platform at the far end of the arena.

“It’s a very expensive way of getting from the big stage to this little one down here,” laughs Clayton.

But it’s much more than that. The screens rise and fall throughout the show, transmitting live footage, political slogans and colourful animations.
