I didn't take these.
Several were previously printed in the Irish Times and Hot
Press, publications I picked up after the concert on August
25th. Slane 2 pictures are not available. I didn't get my hands
on any more paper... decided there was only so much newsprint that
would fit in my bulging backpack. Click on one of the small thumbnails
to bring up a small window with a larger picture on it. They average
about 30K+ per picture. The credits for each picture are listed
below. Do not rip these pictures off without including the same
credits. Some people make a living by taking and publishing pictures.
Have respect for that.
1. Bullfight at the
Castle: From the Irish Times magazine (www.ireland.com),
September 1, 2001. Photographs by Alan O'Connor and Peter
Rowen (article doesn't say which is which so I listed them both).
Excellent shot that captures the whole set up better than any other
picture I've seen.
2. Bono from Behind:
Also from the Irish Times magazine, September 1, 2001 with
photographs by Alan O'Connor and Peter Rowen. You
can't see the expanse of the crowd, probably because of the angle
the photographer was at. From Bono's view, it must have been absolutely
hair-raising. 100,000 people *screaming*.
THE WOOLMAN PHOTOGRAPHS
The last four pictures
are by photographer Roger Woolman who was kind enough to furnish
U2Literary with JPGs from his original pictures. This means less
color distortion, less moires, sharper, cleaner pictures. Thanks,
Roger. Go visit his website at www.themusicphotographer.com.
As always, all copyright etc belongs to him. You may not rip these
pictures off to pass as your own or DISPLAY without credits. Many
of you do this.
Symphony": That's what the headline read. It's from Hot
12th of September, Volume 25, Number 17. Perfect shot for the leading
photograph in the muti-page article.
4. Stage Lights:
The full size picture is actually 600x480, the largest of the bunch.
5. Midst of Song:
Another close up of Bono by the great Roger Woolman.
6. Stage Shot:
Also from Hot Press (same issue as above).
The uncut, unedited version. I publicly apologize for having cropped
it in the previous version of this page. I meant well... :)
I bought a lot of the
press coverage on the first show, but not everything, of course.
There is one picture I really wish I had. I think it was in one
of the newspapers the day after. It's of Bono and Edge kissing Miss
Ireland at the same time, one to each cheek and she's *screaming*.
If anyone has it somewhere or knows where I can get it, please please
write me (Webmaster@U2Literary.com)
and let me know. Thanks!
