U2 Shoot New Video in Vancouver

The GM Place will host the filming of U2’s latest video today.

U2 fans are invited to attend this exclusive filming at the Arena in Vancouver.
Wristbands will be given out from 3pm after which, upon entry to the building, fans will receive a ticket to a reserved seat surrounding the stage. The first 4,000 people will be permitted to enter the venue.

Organisers ask that guests arrive no earlier than 3pm. Full security searches will be implemented at the door – no recording devices of any type will be permitted in the venue, this includes cameras and cellphones. Anyone entering the venue with a recording device will be denied entry.

This Live video will be shot by French directors, Alex and Martin. The pair recently won a Grammy for directing U2’s Vertigo, the debut single from the Number 1 album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Alex and Martin have also worked with The White Stripes, Kylie Minogue, Air, Jane’s Addiction and Noir Desir.

On another note: anyone have any pictures, or know where I can find pictures, of when Bono and Adam had their little 'bull fight' at one of the recent gigs?

I'm guessing this'll be for City of Blinding Lights, if the rumours that that'll be the next single are true.

Those rumours have already been confirmed. The radio edit has already gone to air.

It's been played constantly on Australian radio since Bomb came out...

I wonder if they'll allow cellphones with no camera/video phone capability? I'm not going, just curious.

Eh. I don't really like it when bands record 'tour' footage for their videos, especially given how staged this one is.
I don't mean that nastily... I figured they'd do it like this.

i know what you mean, but somehow i think it'll be done with a twist considering who they're working with, and it could be extremely cool.

A friend of mine was there.. here is part of her account of what happened...

..Finally, out came U2. Everyone goes nuts of course (including me) and it was such a blast. The video they were filming was "City of Blinding Lights" so we heard that song about twelve times. Then as a treat they played "Vertigo", "All Because of You", and then "Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own". Bono was his usual charismatic self, and chatted a lot to the crowd. He said it was nice playing for a small crowd, that it felt more like a club. Bono sang the hokey pokey and had the crowd join in. They dropped red and silver confetti on us, it was so cool (I grabbed a handful for a souvenier haha) and the ball light curtains they had hanging all around the stage were truly amazing. I would've gotten to shake hands with every one of the band members - they all came right by and were grabbing hands of everyone - but I'm too short. Even though I was right up on the rail and on my very tips of my toes I still couldn't reach. Blast it I'm too short! But I did make eye contact with every one of the band members, and I know I was shot on camera several times. So, coming to a screen near you, the video for "City of Blinding Lights".... and if you look closely, and if I wasn't edited out, maybe you'll see me. Well, if you watch MTV anyway (bleh).

City of Blinding Lights is my favorite song off of HTDAAB. I can't wait to see the video!

It was a crazy shoot. Didn't get underway until 7 PM, though. The crew wasn't very organized, and left 4000+ people out in the hot sun for HOURS.

Still, it was great. Lovely people. Fantasic band.
