U2's Gear back at Hanover Quay

I ran into one of the truck of the 360° Tour this morning on Hanover Quay,

The truck was full of flight cases and instruments, directly put in the Hanover Quay Studios.

The boys can now play rock and roll together again in Dublin.

A picture for you :

Thanks for the information! It's not hard to figure out the implications of this.

interesting. not sure if this means that they're recording in Dublin now. did the Vancouver sessions even take place? we had two sources within the band tell us that they were going to record in Vancouver.

Because its there home. For example, when you take things on holiday, your going to bring everything back home, and dublin is home for the boys.

But its stuff they will need for the tour, so what would be the point bringing it all the way back to europe, just to have it shipped back off again in a couple of months? it points to something happening with regards to recording.

Heard nothing here.

Thought it was odd they would move band gear to NYC for that RRHOF show then cart everything back to Vancouver for studio work.

The only benefit for Vancouver is one nice studio downtown, some privacy and tax dodge status.

I would think with the upcoming Olympics and preparations leading up to it, there might be less privacy than usual.
I agree- I don't think they'll record there.

A band as big as U2 might do a few things:

- I am sure they have a US storage space set up for some gear, as they won't need to take the entire rig back to Ireland.

- BUT, I am sure Edge, Larry, Adam all want the essential gear as I am sure they will rehearse after the new year in Ireland, and/or record. Edge will want his dedicated amps, etc. set up, etc.

If I were U2 I would advise them to set up shop in Ireland and write, re-work tunes for a release. OR, fly straight to Toronto and get with Danny or have Danny come to Ireland. They need to do more in Ireland, less in France.

Where would you keep the gear until June, when the next concert is to take place?

i think it all depends on what gear they were bringing into Hanover Quay. i would doubt all 3 Claws fit in there, so i would assume it would be musical equipment. whether that means they're recording there or not, your guess is as good as mine.

^ We've got a spare room they could use and we're not expecting any visitors over the holidays - they could leave their stuff at my place.
