A day-by-day history of U2, now in its second edition.

Let’s Play Again: When/Where Was This Photo Taken?

By on April 16, 2008 in Call for Help with 5 Comments

Now that we’ve solved the first case of “When/Where Was This Photo Taken?” (thanks Mary!), how about we give it another try?

This is like “Ask the Audience” on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. I don’t know the answer, but the intelligent audience might be able to help. 🙂

Here’s another photo in consideration for U2: A Diary that we need a date and location for, if possible.

If you know, or have an intelligent guess, please speak up in the comments. Thanks in advance!

    Looks like pre War era to me.

    It’s a stadium and Pre War appearances at stadiums were rare enough for U2

    My best guess is July 31t 1982 Gateshead International Stadium – UK.

    There are some other photos of the event here,:

    scroll down and you can see Edge is wearing the same light blue shirt, and Bono has a tanned sleeveless jacket on but has a white t-shirt underneath which checks with the photo. Hairstyles are the same.

    Looks like a match !

    This is almost certainly the Gateshead Festival, July 31 1982.

  3. Matt says:

    Yep, Gateshead it is. In addition to your helpers, my friend Eric Naulaerts replied via email to confirm. Everything’s a match. THANK YOU!
