Summer 1993; Saturday, early evening, having been to see U2 live for the first time the night before in their Zoo TV tour in the RDS. I was listening to Radio 2, who were broadcasting the Sat night show live, and who were at that moment running commentary and interviews live from the RDS. Having realised the fuss of U2 live the night before, I had decided to sit in and listen to it.
And as I sat there, I thought to myself......fuck it.
I hopped on a bus to Ballsbridge, got a ticket off a tout for around 40 quid and went to the gig.
And it was great.
