After speculation that U2 were filming a music video last weekend, Dublin city council has
confirmed that the band did close down Samuel Beckett bridge for filming.
A senior official at the council said the bridge was off bounds for all of last Sunday, confirming to the Irish Times that it was for a “U2 project.”
However none of the band members were there.
The confirmation comes after production company Pull The Trigger claimed they were filming on the bridge for an up and coming band.
Huge traffic delays caused suspicion last Sunday, and now Dublin City Council have revealed the production company had a privacy agreement.
“The production company in question was bound by a confidentiality agreement… and this was respected by Dublin city council”.
The Samuel Beckett bridge shoot was part of four days of filming which took place around Dublin.
According to the Irish Times Pull the Trigger paid €2,000 a day plus VAT in order to close down streets and bridges last weekend, with a total cost of €8,241.
The production company previously worked on the video for U2’s Sweetest Thing.
