The band have been back in Fes, Morocco this week, the ancient North African city where they began writing much of No Line on the Horizon. This time they've been shooting a video for the upcoming single, Magnificent.



Alex Courtes, who directed the 'Boots' video in London last December, has also been with them - at the helm again for the new shoot. After filming in a local riad on day one of the shoot, it was out onto the streets of the city.

Fez and Magnificent
It's the usual play 'Hurry Up and Wait'. Even a band like U2 has to go through the same thing... Can't wait until the new single is released. And Fez looks beautiful. I would love to hear the prayer calls at dawn...

N.P.S. Interview
Saw you guys yesterday during an interview from the dutch television ( nps)and I was very amused by that.In spite of what some people say bono, keep up the good work! Your contribution to the poorest/weakest people in the world is remarkable. And you're right what you said about U2 fans....they're indeed very smart people! .Btw love the new cd

Wicked!
Great to see the band back in high form. It would be awesome to see some concerts expand out of the big cities in the US too. I know U2 are huge, but an in between gig, say Syracuse, NY at the Carrier Dome would be an wicked cool event. Consider?

I hope so this a video clip will be a beautiful video. Morocco is really exotic place. Your new album is very good. I hope for it in Poland we meet, and we may see you again. Greeting from Hungary! Tomi (22 of his years U2 fan)
