This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… U2 and Ash at The Waterfront Hall May 18th 1998 August 10, 2019

Billy Bragg did a three hour broadcast recently on the BBC included was “Beautiful Day” a documentary (from 1.01 here) on the concert in The Waterfront Hall a few days before the Good Friday Agreement. It was the concert that gave us the famous image of John Hume and David Trimble arms held aloft by Bono. It’s a great listen and brought back memories of the weeks before The Good Friday Agreement Referendum. How the concert was arranged, the people behind it and the assumption too that the concert made a difference.
