U2 have announced their plans to develop a visitor and exhibition centre, which will be dedicated to the band’s history and success.

The Irish rockers have applied for planning permission for a three-storey over basement building, – which is on the same site as the band’s Hanover Quay recording studio, where they recorded some of their biggest hits.

According to The Irish Times, the plans include a revamp of the band’s original studio, plus several exhibit areas, an auditorium and a café.

The extravagant new build will also feature a cantilevered roof overlooking Grand Canal Dock.

U2 bought the studio back in 2014 for €450,000.

There’s no doubt this news will be welcomed by U2 fans, as they have long complained about the lack of Irish landmarks recognising the band’s achievements.
