U2 Fails to Stop Demolition of Famed Studio
Mon Jun 17, 8:51 AM ET

DUBLIN (Reuters) - The Irish rock group U2 has lost a bid to prevent demolition of the studio where it recorded its latest award-winning album.

Ireland's Planning Board has been given the go-ahead for a redevelopment project that requires the razing of the studio, feted by the group as part of Ireland's musical heritage.

The studio, on Hanover Quay in Dublin, was used by U2 to record the Grammy-winning album "All That You Can't Leave Behind" and has been compared in significance to The Cavern Club in Liverpool, where the Beatles spent their early days.

More than 8,000 fans had signed an online petition ( to preserve the studio, where the group also recorded some of its "Pop" album.

Dublin's Docklands Authority placed a compulsory purchase order on the property in August 2001 as a step toward demolishing the studio to create a public amenity on the quayside.

I was very disappointed to hear about that. I can't believe they are really going to tear it down:lemon:

Lemonade Stand is more for off-topic, non-U2 related discussion -- Everything You Know Is Wrong is for general U2 discussion, while there are other forums to suit specific topics (It's a Musical Journey: lyric analysis, Even Better Than The Real Thing?: their equipment, etc., Every Poet is a Cannibal, Every Poet Is a Thief: books related to U2). Just a reminder.
