Nice-Matin: U2 Shooting Video at Riviera Studios

@U2, August 14, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

The French newspaper Nice-Matin has a report out today with details from a visit to Riviera Studios in Nice, where it says U2 has been shooting a video since Tuesday.

Here's the original article in French, and here's a link to the Google translation. I'll highlight some of the English phrases from that translation:

  • "dozens of trucks filled with music equipment and spotlights"
  • "huge platform raised in the heart of Studio 1"
  • "surreal deployment of security personnel [with] British accents"
  • "they [U2] arrived here around 11am on Tuesday"

The article also mentions restrictions about using mobile phones and one studio employee comparing the scene to a visit by President Obama for the G20 (in 2011). It also says that a caterer is due to be on site through August 18.

As a reminder, a French video company tweeted earlier this week that it was in Nice for a video shoot with U2. So I think we can say this is definitely happening. (Thx to @q2be__ for the tip on Twitter.)
