The GM Place in Vancouver will today host the filming of U2’s latest video clip, for the track City Of Blinding Lights.
U2 fans are invited to attend this exclusive filming at the Arena in Vancouver.
Wristbands will be given out from 3pm after which, upon entry to the building, fans will receive a ticket to a reserved seat surrounding the stage. The first 4,000 people will be permitted – on a first come, first served basis – to enter the venue.
Organisers ask that guests arrive no earlier than 3pm. Full security searches will be implemented at the door – no recording devices of any type will be permitted in the venue, this includes cameras and cellphones. Anyone entering the venue with a recording device will be denied entry.
This live video will be shot by French directors, Alex and Martin. The pair recently won a Grammy for directing U2’s Vertigo, the debut single from the Number 1 album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Alex and Martin have also worked with The White Stripes, Kylie Minogue, Air, Jane’s Addiction and Noir Desir.
