U2 Early Days

Early Days - Irish Shows, 1976-78

: Harp Lager Contest - Limerick, Ireland

View all performances at Harp Lager Contest, Limerick, Ireland.


  1. Street Mission
  2. Life on a Distant Planet
  3. The TV Song
Comments: U2 win the Harp Lager Talent Contest at the Savoy Cinema. The prize includes a chance to audition for CBS Records. This is one of the earliest appearances of the band as U2 (or "U2 Malahide") rather than Feedback or The Hype. Setlist is believed to be complete but the order is unconfirmed. "The TV Song" is an early U2 original named because the band felt it resembled the sound of the band Television; some reports claim U2 played an early version of An Cat Dubh at this show, which may or may not be what "The TV Song" refers to.
