Alex & Martin capture U2 at Dublin 3
Fans are curious about the film cameras in place at U2’s Dublin II and III shows. From what we saw, the second night was filmed, with cameras all around the main stage (including a large crane on stage) and shelter (and possibly the rest of the stadium, can someone confirm this?). On night three, however, there were no large cameras, at least none visible from our spot front stage.
We did see French directors (at least we’re fairly sure it was them) Alexandre Courtes and Martin Fougerole (responsible for the Vertigo and COBL promos) who were on stage for the entire show. You can see Alexandre in this picture, as he’s following The Edge going down the B-stage during Love and Peace or Else:
The duo took pictures with SLR cameras and were filming parts of the show (as well as the audience before the gig started) with mini DVs. Whether the footage shot at Dublin will see the light of day is as yet unknown… we can’t help but hope it was a dry run for a video shoot in Amsterdam.
