U2 Fans Catch Glimpse Of Band On Video Shoot

12.14.04 - IOL

Hundreds of music fans gathered to catch a glimpse of rock legends U2 today as they filmed the video for their next single.

Gardai were on high alert outside Dublin's legendary Gaiety Theatre as the four band-mates attempted to sneak in unnoticed.

But the hoards of screaming fans, some of whom had waited since 6.30am, soon scuppered their efforts.

A spokeswoman said the band were filming a video for their next single from their much-awaited album, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, which has topped the charts in over 30 countries.

The band's spokeswoman said the name of their next single had not yet been released.

The Edge pulled up outside their hometown theatre in a taxi with blacked-out windows at around 1pm.

He spent several minutes signing autographs and having his picture taken with dedicated fans.

The crowd then surged forward as Bono arrived some 45 minutes later.

The international humanitarian campaigner spent five minutes greeting fans before making a victory salute and entering by the stage door.

The crowd quickly dispersed after glimpsing the U2 frontman.

Several gardai watched over the crowd, erected safety barriers and ensured traffic continued to flow past the theatre.

Over 50,000 fans recently lined the streets of New York to catch a glimpse to the band as they moved across the Brooklyn bridge on a truck.
