The U2 File was the first ever major book about U2. Published in 1985, and edited by Niall Stokes.
It captured the giddy seven years of explosive coverage of the band that went on to change the world, in the pages of Hot Press. In a powerful, as-it-happened style, it charts the rise of the band from their earliest appearances as a four-piece in 1978 to their triumphant sell-out gig in Croke Park, Dublin, 1985, at the end of the Unforgettable Fire tour.
This edition is fully translated into Japanese, and would be an amazing addition to any collection.
This book also including additional material published in 'Three Chords And The Truth' with all text in Japanese, and has a unique dust jacket.
Please note that there is just a small number of these original, unused – but inevitably slightly time-worn – collectors’ items available.
