Photographer Ralph Larmann has been documenting the U2 360 tour at several stops in Europe, getting some pretty amazing stuff along the way. One of the tools in his kit is a panoramic camera, and he used that to take the above panoramic shot behind theband during the show in Gelsenkirchen.

To zoom in on the shot, use the shift key; to zoom out, the control key. To rotate, click on the image and point it in the direction you want to move. Don’t forget to zoom up to look at the pylon and other components of the rig.

You can also see Ralph’s work on the cover of the August/September issue of Live Design, which will feature a photo gallery of shots from the tour.
