May 20 – Irish band U2 rocked the Cannes Film Festival with a short live set on the famous red carpet as they made their way into the main cinema for the premiere of a new film ‘U2 3D’
The band thrilled fans with two hits songs from their vast repertoire – ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’.
The film, which the band are promoting – ‘U2 3D’ – was shot in South America during the band’s ‘Vertigo’ tour, and seeks to recreate the atmosphere of a gig, and take fans on a thrilling visual ride.
The film combines camera angles that soar over the audience, zoom in to within inches of the performers, join them on stage, and look back into the stadium.
The film, which will be shown in 3D only, is expected to be released internationally in theatres equipped with digital projection systems.
The performance doesn’t start until about 3:45 into the video.
