Stories in Sound

June 24th 1987 was no ordinary day. Not if you were one of the thousands of U2 fans that streamed into Belfast's Kings Hall clutching tickets for a concert billed as one of the biggest and best the city would ever see. The release of the band's iconic album, The Joshua Tree, set Bono, Larry, Adam and the Edge on the path to super-stardom and, for one night, they brought their brand of rock n' roll soul to Northern Ireland. Thirty years on, Stories in Sound takes fans back to the Kings Hall to relive the songs, the spectacle of a leather waistcoat-wearing Bono on stage and asks why U2's commentary on the political situation here has endured for decades.
