One of my big regrets from the first book is that I have no mention of this in it:
I’m sure most (if not all( of you are familiar with that video of the Dalton Brothers accepting three awards on behalf of U2. But I have no idea what date it happened, what awards show it’s from, nor where U2 are.
On the last question, there’s a poster on the wall behind them that references U2′s Lovetown shows in Melbourne in early October, 1989. And if they’re accepting awards for “Song of the Decade,” “Album of the Decade,” etc., then that timing would make sense. I’m willing to bet they’re in Melbourne at this time.
But what awards show is it? It looks like the “trophy” in front of Dan Lanois is a pair of copper boots. And I can’t quite read the graphic on-screen in the lower left; it seems to say “New Music …” something. ??
Anyone have more details on this?
