U2


“Angel of Harlem” live




SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

U2 are an Irish rock formed in Dublin in 1976

The group recorded their first demo tape at Keystone Studios in Dublin in May 1978. The group's first official release was an Ireland-only EP entitled Three released in September 1979. In February 1980, their second single "Another Day" was released on the CBS label, but again only for the Irish market.

Island Records signed U2 in March 1980, and in May, the band released "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" as their first international single. The band's debut album, Boy, followed in October.

The third album "War" became then band's big breakthough, and more singles from the album reached international charts.
