In this arena director Joseph Kahn and U2 filmed parts of the American 'Stuck In A Moment' Videos (the football version). Later on the recording was put together with a digital stadium audience and football scenes filmed in Houston. The recording in Berlin took part with around 100 extras, among them German comedian Michael Mittermeier. Originally the Max-Schmelig-Arena was a pure sports arena, e.g. for Berlin’s basketball team ‘Alba’. For some time now, however, it has also been used for various music events.
With a capacity of around 12,000 spectators, it is one of the largest event halls in Berlin.
