We just stumbled on this bit of gold and it shows a fresh faced U2 appearing (or what seems to be appearing) on TV for the very first time.
The show was Ireland’s The Late Late show (no James Corden - Gay Byrne instead) and the spirited intro shows a local journo, John McKenna, suggesting this up and coming band are:
“… the band for the future, the ‘80s, the ‘90s, who knows?”
Not far wrong mate!
U2 performed their song Stories For Boys, which was one of the three songs off their first EP Three, released wayyyyyyy back in 1979.
What a blast from the past!
