Supergroup U2 may be the biggest Irish popstars on the planet right now — but they’re still true-blue Dubs at heart.
For the first photoshoot for their eagerly-awaited 12th new album, the Diary can reveal how they chose the salubrious surroundings of none other than Dollymount Beach.
Not far from their former Clontarf alma mater of Mount Temple Comprehensive, where they all met, the famous foursome got back to their roots for the publicity shots.
And when it came to having their tresses tended for the shoot for their new album, they called on their old pal, celebrity hairdresser Dylan Bradshaw.
But forget about them demanding any wacky top-of-the-range styles — Dylan explained how they’re actually short back and sides kind of guys.
“At the end of the day, they’re just four Irish blokes and they would never ask for anything too off-the-wall or trendy so they all just wanted a basic cut.
“The thing is, they’re all so busy that everything is done really fast.
“They literally jet in, get together and jet off again and do their own thing,” he explained.
Clearly a U2 fan himself, he went on to say how he heard three of the tracks from their new album – and said it “blew him away”.
“They’re more-or-less finished the whole album now. There’s one or two songs they have to lay down but apart from that they’re done so they were telling me how they’re probably going to take the rest of the summer off,” he continued.
“They’re also hoping to tour again next year on the back of the new album.”
