U2 Agus An arc: On RTE this Thursday
« on: July 18, 2017, 03:54:18 PM »
Before U2's forthcoming performance in Croke Park, this documentary looks back at the band's early years in the late 1970s, when the Dublin band connected with a loyal audience at the thriving Downtown Kampus gigs, run by students in UCC at the Arcadia Ballroom in Cork. Between 1978 and 1980, U2 played there about 10 times, building a loyal and enthusiastic following, and the performances are believed to have played an important part in their development.

is it Croke or Cork?

"CORK" is the second biggest city in Ireland. "CROKE", pronounced "crow" like the Brandon Lee movie is a stadium in Dublin.
