Yeah, it was an absolute classic.
Our legendry show sponsors “Blackpool Shopping centre” provided the perfect roof top platform to pull off a stunt that had hundreds looking up in amazement at our planted “ U2 tribute bad “
For two weeks now Lenny and I were hinting at a secret U2 cork gig, and well…. Today was the day.
Local suits have a gawk.
The band were amazing, totally pulled it off ( yer man is the pup off Bono )
The guards and fire brigade were in on the prank and even” raided” the gig 45 minutes into the performance.
But the best bit was at the end of the gig “ Bono “ was rushed out of the building by security into a black Limousine as a 2 bike Garda escort spilt the morning traffic and took him back to ……. Ah… his van and crew at the back of the building, rock n roll.
To everyone who helped pull this off, especially John Hartnett, It will go down a one of the greatest Irish radio pranks ever.
You can catch it on TV3 news this evening from 5.30 , also on Six one news, the evening echo news paper today ( wednesday) And tomorrow in the Irish Independant,The Times, Examiner, Star & Sun.
