I was watching the Dallas Cowboys play tonight and they have a new stadium this year and it contains the biggest HD screen in the world.

Here is a picture of it:

When the boys come to Dallas next month are they going to move the screen?

The tip of the 360 stage reaches 164 feet tall.
The bottom of the HD screen is at 72 feet.

Maybe the boys will use the screens? Who knows...

U2 is actually paying for the screens to be moved so The Claw will fit...

So no, it wouldn't have fit otherwise. 

By the way, GO PANTHERS!   ;)

Wow They are moving them? I remember when one of the football punts hit the screen and there was a lot of talk about moving it but the stadium owner got mad and wouldn't move it further up or anything. I'm surprised that he didn't have a fit about this haha.

U2 is paying millions to have it moved for their stage to fit. That's probably why the stadium owners accepted!

$2 Million to lift the screen.  U2 is paying for it, and it will not be used in the show.  In Dallas, the stadium is playfully known as "The Death Star".  10/12 Space Junk comes to the Death Star

Bono = Han Solo
The Edge = Obi Wan
Adam = Chewbacca
Larry = Luke

I am sure a pully system will be installed so the screen can be moved at any time.  Jerry Jones is not going to turn away 100,000 people that are paying $75 to park, from a stadium that cost $1.2 billion to build.

I read that the 360 stage is 97' (or thereabouts) and the bottom of the screen is 90' above the ground. They are supposedly in the middle of installing a pulley system so the screen can be raised at will. I also heard (not confirmed) that the reason the dome was closed for the game with the Panthers last night (on a gorgeous evening here in the Dallas area) was because the work to install the pulley system was ongoing and required that the dome to be closed.
