“U2 is my God”

Welcome to Vertigo

Some shots from the old U2 recording studio on Hanover Quay; It’s the only one-story building left in the area, surrounded by 10-floor apartment blocks and large holes in the ground where 10-floor apartment blocks are being built. I think a few albums, including All That You Can’t Leave Behind and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb were recorded here. Most of the graffiti is on the wall just across from it which I think is, sadly, going to be knocked down.

A compulsory purchase order was handed to the lads back in 2001 when the Docklands was undergoing all that redevelopment and they went to court to fight it; an online petition to save the studio was even started. Fans from all over the world have somehow managed to find their way through the construction cones and builder’s rubble to leave their messages.
