U2 shooting 'Best Thing' video at today's Amsterdam concert

Need more confirmation that we'll be getting new U2 music sooner rather than later? How about this: Fans entering Amsterdam ArenA for today's U2 concert are seeing a sign that says U2 is shooting a music video for "Best Thing," the track that's expected to be the first single from Songs Of Experience.

"We are filming a music video currently entitled 'Best Thing,'" the sign says. It then goes into all the necessary legalese about how attending the concert gives permission for your likeness to be used in all forms of media, yadda-yadda-yadda. A fan named Theo McNeil tweeted this photo of the sign:

During Saturday's concert, Bono brought a girl on stage during "Mysterious Ways" -- a girl who was wearing a jacket with a lyric from "Best Thing." She was apparently planted there and brought on stage purposely; fans have seen her again today wearing the same clothes and with a video crew following her around the stadium.

This video shoot comes just two days after U2 did a video of themselves performing another new song that we think is called "Blackout" or "The Blackout."

"Best Thing" obviously seems to be a shortened title for "The Best Thing About Me Is You," a song that Bono talked about it in the February 2017 issue of MOJO magazine. Kygo, the Norwegian DJ/producer, played his remixed version of the song at the Cloud Nine festival in Norway last August.
