Magnificent: Behind The Scenes in Morocco

26
A few weeks back the band headed out to Fes, Morocco, to shoot a video for the new single Magnificent.

Setting up a performance space inside a local riad, director Alex Courtez also took band and camera crew out on the streets of this mediaeval city - amongst the traders in the market, on the ancient walls and playing with local kids.

This behind-the-scenes special is cut to the album version of Magnificent, not the single edit. Stay tuned for the new video itself... coming soon.

What Joyful Noise
This is a great video. U2 never ceases to amaze and U2.com delivers. Really looking forward to the video for Magnificent Fes is just so beautiful. Parts of this reminded me of the video for I Still haven't found what I'm Looking for.

GREAT SHOT !!!
Good right foot effort from Larry. Lovely technique. Maybe a career at United was missed out on many years ago. Never mind, their loss is our gain. C U at Wembley !

Following U
I was born to follow U2 in this space and time! Nice video guys. Cant wait to see the video and listen to the remixes tracks. Regards from Brazil. We've missed you!

Best song in the world!
Even my friends love this song! And believe me, it's not easy convincing people of these things where I live. I can barely get them to listen to the songs at all, let alone like them. At least there are enough U2 fans in my state to get them to come. I can't wait until the music video comes out, and, more imoprtantly, I cant wait until October 3rd!
