Liverpool video shoot rumor part 2

U2tour.de says that

- U2 plan to shoot a video in a Liverpool theatre on 14 August, posing as a U2 tribute band
- a whole storey of a Liverpool hotel has been booked
- two U2 tribute bands called ZU2 and Achtung Baby have booked Liverpool theatre for 13. and 14. August
- security is handled by the same security company that handles U2 shows in UK
- a well-known video production firm that worked for U2 in the past also booked a Liverpool hotel

If this is about the missing CD debate...whatever.

Kind of a funny idea - U2 being a U2 tribute band.
But - it seems awfully close to aspects of the Even Better Than The Real Thing video.
Oh, well...I'm sure U2 will find a way to pull it off

Sounds to me like the 2 cover bands are going to be playing them in the video.

Sort of mimmickry, sounds like it might be an interesting idea.

Is there any way to get in contact with these U2 cover bands to confirm this...?

And the idea of U2 cover bands playing U2 in a video is pretty interesting. Hopefully U2 can bring out the comedic side of themselves so people won't take them so seriously.

I'm still waiting for a good band to shoot a video in Canary Wharf...that'd be a great place for a music video

For some reason 'liverpool hotel' makes me think of a video similar to the one for Pride...anyway I thought they'd already shot the single vid?

What I understood from this is that U2 are 'posing' as a tribute band, and in reality the band really is U2!
So, does that mean those people who are going to see U2 look-alikes are actually in for quite a surprise?
And furthermore, why would they be filming the video if the single won't be out until November 8th?
I can't take this speculation anymore. We at interference should hold a press conference and demand some answers.

Translation of u2achtung.com's news piece:

Quote:
U2 is shooting a music video in a theater in Liverpool: U2 would be attending a tribute concert in honor of...U2. The audience thinks they're about to see a cover or tribute band dressed up as the members of U2 when the real U2 steps on stage. An entire floor of a hotel in the center of Liverpool has been booked. The firm in charge of security for the theater is the same one that usually handles U2's security. Furthermore, a video production company, which has worked with U2 in the past, has also reserved several rooms in the same hotel...under the name of ABOU Productions (notice the All Because Of U acronym).
