"There were hundreds of soldiers on the left side of the stadium. The rest of the crowd was made up of Croats and Serbs who had travelled to the show on trains that hadn't run since the start of the war. People travelled from all over the region to see the gig. These people were killing each other only a year before. Here they were together at a U2 gig. What an amazing thing."

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.
