Dublin Showcases Earliest Photos of Baby-Faced U2

In the beginning there was Bono. And what a baby face he had.

Photographs documenting the gritty beginnings of U2 in the smoky pubs and clubs of 1970s Dublin are being unveiled Thursday at an exhibition in the band’s home city. Much of the exhibition by photographer Patrick Brocklebank has never been seen before.

Brocklebank’s black-and-white images capture the teenage Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen at 1978 and 1979 gigs, their vibrant hairdos and fashion missteps, and their clowning around in impromptu shoots and scruffy nighttime hangouts.
