Episode #6 - From The Great Ocean Road To Adelaide
A day before the show in Adelaide we are joined in the city by Anita from The Netherlands, a fan who had quite a special experience with Bono back in 2015. We talk about the shows in Melbourne and Brisbane and have a look at what the local media is saying about The Joshua Tree shows. We go back in time to review the history of "The Drifting Cowboys" and try to make sense of what Edge and Larry are talking about during the shows.
You can listen to the podcast on our podcast page, but we are also on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcast, Stitcher and TuneIn. Just search for "U2start".
