There's a video of this somewhere but basically they had 16 TV screens
behind the band in a 4x4 array. Sometimes they showed the same picture
on each (space piccies, Stonehenge etc) and sometimes a composite across
the 16 screens. The rest of the set was done up like the bridge of a
starship with 4 supplementary screens at various positions. IMHO this
was very effective and I remember this as one of the best of the 60 or
so gigs I've seen.
