U2 1983

Created by Rhys 7 months ago
Colin got me a ticket to see U2 in 1982 at the Hammersmith Palais, cost £4. Supported by The Alarm. Colin bought the album (a tape) “October” which we had on play for about a year. We went to Scotland in the New Year. Colin knew how to adapt to each setting so easily. From U2 live to his Mum’s lounge where we said grace over tea and cake. At a conference centre my coat caught fire! They surprised me with a whip round for £30. Colin took me to Carnaby Street to buy a new one. We both wore a Superman T-shirt for the college photo. He helped hone the life-discipline in me of morning and evening prayer. A far greater gift than U2 tickets.
