U2

Catalogue No: UT007DC Artist(s): U2 Location: Cork, Ireland Date: 4th February 1980 Era: The 1980's Edition: Rockarchive Edition 100 Print type: Giclée Print Paper type: Archival 310gsm cotton based rag paper

David Corio recalls 'The photo of U2 (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jnr.) was taken on the roof of the Country Club Hotel ( now Montenotte Hotel - they have a selection of the images in their lobby) in Cork, Ireland on a cold February morning in 1980. This was my first job 'abroad' for the NME and I had never heard of U2. They did not yet have a record deal and this was one of their first interviews with a music paper. I went on tour with them from Cork through some small towns to Dublin. They played youth clubs and at some of the dates they supported a band that played the top 40 hits. You could tell even back then that they had something special about them though even if there were only a few dozen people watching them. This photo was used on the cover of their book 'U2 By U2' and also on their Greatest Hits CD/DVD called 'U218'.'

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK & the rest of the European Union (EU). On our website prices that include the cost of VAT read 'Price inc VAT'

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the EU eg USA, Canada, Japan, Austrailia etc do not have VAT charged to them. So in these cases the price charged will be the one that reads 'Price ex VAT'.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
