U2's plans for a visitor centre and museum in Dublin's docklands have been sent back to the drawing board by Dublin City Council amid "serious concerns" about the proposed scheme.
The rock band last June announced plans to demolish their two-storey recording studio at Hanover Quay on the south docks and replace it with a visitor and exhibition centre, the equivalent of four storeys in height.
The new building, which would be almost three times the size of the old studio, would house an exhibition centre dedicated to the band's history and a reconstruction of the band's original studio, along with a cafe and shop.
