TV premiere of WOWY video.
« on: February 16, 2024, 10:55:41 AM »
It was on 'The Tube', a few minutes after U2 had been interviewed on it by Paula Yates. The interview on Youtube.

Paula said the video had 'just been flown over from Dublin'.

Had already heard the  song but poor quality sound as had taped it off the radio.

First time I had seen Bono with a guitar and pony tale.

Video very somber but suited the song. Can see why they went for the ISHFWILF video next.

My family couldn't resist watching it as had told them how big U2 would be when the next album was released.

Sister said Bono was posing. As if.

The whole video was played before it cut to Jools Holland. He continued staring intensely at a monitor for a few seconds, before looking at the camera and talking about something completly different. Assume he was processing the WOWY video.

The Tube was always on Friday evenings. Then repeated on Sunday afternoon.

The Sunday afternoon showing was when I saw the interview. Edge saying about 'some shows in Wembley'. 

Believe they also performed 'Springhill Mining disaster'. Which is on Youtube.

The 'Springhill Mining Disaster' performance showed the direction they were going in for the next tour.

Bono less energetic & focusing more on his vocals. To great effect as he still had a very powerful voice.

He would still get people out of the audience. As he did at Wembley Stadium.

Mrs Edge before she was Mrs Edge.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I always found it odd that U2 released "With Or With Out You" to radio and MTV just a few days before the release of the Joshua Tree album. Most active promotion for a new album with a new single and video starts one to two months before an album release.

Is this a flashback or did they re-release WOWY?

*where the hell is my beer?

*unfortunately the girls at HOOTERS (friends of Bono) aren't strippers.
