U2 Featured in New RTE Online Archives

Bookmark and Share

U2 has its own section inside a new online archive from Ireland's RTE. The archive is part of RTE's 50th anniversary celebration, and for U2 fans, it includes audio and video clips covering pretty much the band's entire career -- including some early material from before U2 was known worldwide. Here's how RTE describes it:

Here from the RTÉ Archives are some moments from the band's career as covered by radio and television. Included are U2's first television appearance and  interviews with the band members at various stages during their career. There is a surprise appearance at a Dublin record store from 1988.  Bono meeting with fans outside his hotel in Boston in 1987.  Listen also to an interview with Bono from the 'Dave Fanning Show'  broadcast that launched 'U2 Three' the first single.

Most of the clips run between one and five minutes long. As cool as the archive is, it would've been even better if the full interviews and videos were put online. But don't let that stop you -- visit RTE for its U2 video/audio archive and enjoy what's there.
