Excellent performance Bono going on his ear in that Rock star kinda way was cool the stage was tiny but he really made the most of it ,at the time there were a lot of bands who were better than U2 but they didn't have the work ethic or crucially the backing of their record company through the hard times to sustain a long and successful career, even though they were only starting out Bono was the difference between them been a club band for life and a stadium act he really knew how to whip up a crowd and get the audience's attention we've seen him do it so many times at the US festival in 83,Red Rocks and Live Aid.
"We went everywhere together. I thought it was pretty pointless being the manager of U2 if you didn't get to see their shows. I didn't regard it as a burden so much as a privilege."

In September 1976, Larry Mullen, Jr. posted a notice on Mount Temple Comprehensive School's bulletin board to form a band. With seven responses to Larry's note, the band which were known at the time as The Hype, The Larry Mullen Band, Feedback and later U2 is whittled down to four as seen from 1980's debut Boy to the current day.
