"I feel like it's always raining in our songs, that bittersweetness. . . . We surrender too easily to the blues. We, if we're not careful, are bleeding all over the world."

-- Bono

U2 at Corner Hotel

Herald Sun, November 21, 2006
By: Caneron Adams


Rock royalty came to the streets of Richmond yesterday when U2 filmed a music video at the Corner Hotel.

U2 filmed scenes for "Window in the Skies" with 300 extras at the pub.

The song will be the next release from their new compilation 18 Singles.

Bono talked with fans before entering the venue, coming straight from a meeting with Treasurer Peter Costello.

The extras all signed confidentiality clauses.

Scenes were shot inside the bandroom and on the rooftop beer garden.

It's not the first time the Corner has hosted a rock great -- Mick Jagger played a secret solo show at the venue in 1988.

U2 head to New Zealand tomorrow, before gigs in Japan and Hawaii that finish their rescheduled world tour.

The band played to more than 350,000 people during their Australian tour this month, which ended in Melbourne on Sunday.

U2 also filmed footage at their Melbourne concert on Saturday, which is expected to be used on a DVD.

Meanwhile, U2 are beating their heroes the Beatles in record stores this week.

U2's 18 Singles is flying out of record stores.

The record sold more than 10,000 copies nationally on its first day of release on Saturday, with more than 100,000 copies shipped to record stores to cope with demand.

U2 are expected to be No. 1 and the Beatles' new compilation, Love, at No. 2 on next week's Australian chart.
