RNR News and Notes

 

 

 

Have you ever seen a band play a small gig and later to go on to become  world wide superstars? 

 

Back in 1981 - a little Irish band called U2 was making the rounds - playing college campuses and small clubs ... just a little after the release of their debut album Boy.  

 

Boy - I bet the people who saw this band in 1981 had no idea what a rock powerhouse they would become! 

 

Below is a full concert (with some extremely impressive quality audio and video) from May 15, 1981 ... sit back, tell the boss your on a conference call, and enjoy!
