One support act this summer has a unique and ongoing connection with U2.
The Radiators (Plan 9) are set to play support on the Saturday night of U2's three shows at Croke Park in Dublin.
If you weren't around at the time, The Radiators hail from the same (Dublin) town and (late-1970's) time as U2 themselves. But the loss to rock music with their demise was the gain of graphic design as Steve Averill went on to become the creative mind who set the tone for the design of U2 record sleeves, t-shirts and posters from then until now.
But The Radiators are still with us! We'll be talking more to Steve about The Radiators shortly, but the best place for more right now is here www.theradiators.tv
