2015-08-31 - I was There submitted by Joe

I can't remember everything about the gig - but I do know that they made a big impression on me and made me a fan until this day.
I had heard a few songs from listening to Dave Fanning on RTe radio from Dublin - and when I heard they were playing Coventry I told everyone I knew to get along and see them.
It was a small crowd - maybe 60 to 80 people max.
11 O clock Tick Tock was played twice, Out of Control , I will Follow, Stories for Boys . It was a bit messy and the sound wasn't the best - but they had a rawness and excitement and Bono's stage prescence was inspiring. I saw them again in Sheffield a few weeks later at the Limit Club - the crowd was much bigger then.
