The promo for new single 'Beautiful Day' is shot in Paris...

U2 filmed the new video for their forthcoming single ‘BEAUTIFUL DAY’ at CHARLES DE GAULLE airport in PARIS over the weekend, nme.com can exclusively reveal.

The band used the new Terminal 2F building as the site.

The exact whereabouts of the shoot was a closely guarded secret, with the only information provided stating that the location was central to the film’s storyline.

An official statement from U2 this afternoon (August 14) explained that the band had travelled through the airport many times and had “always admired” its architecture.

As revealed on nme.com last week, Jonas Ackerlund, the man behind Madonna’s ‘Music’ video, directed the film.

Fans can see the video from September. Further details are expected to be delivered through [url=]www.u2.com.
