** Bono pointed out in a ''Rolling Stone'' piece that the 360 stage has been compared to that of DavidBowie's [[http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_Spider_Tour Glass Spider Tour]] in 1987 -- can you blame them? Bowie was one of the first rockers to use this trope, starting with 1974's Diamond Dogs Tour with its giant "Hunger City" set -- ''so'' big and expensive that it eventually had to be dropped (complaints from the band and backup singers, who were all obscured by it for most of the show, probably didn't help). The 1990 Sound+Vision Tour substituted giant projections of Bowie and other performers for physical setpieces. Bowie averted this trope in other tours, such as the 1976 Isolar Tour that used only lighting to set scenes/moods... and even that was limited to white lights.

* Many of {{iamamiwhoami}}'s videos depict the natural beauty of the Swedish landscape- as is fitting for a [[ConceptVideo conceptual series of videos]] about a NatureSpirit. Dark and snowy forests, fields, and rivers have all made prominent appearances.

* The cover art for SimpleMinds' debut album [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/45726701/Life+In+A+Day.jpg "Life In A Day."]] Although their label at the time didn't seem to like it.
