Boomtown Rats and Late Late Show Return

The Late Late Show is back tonight after the summer break.
Guests joining Ryan Tubridy tonight include The Boomtown Rats, actor Domhnall Gleeson, rising stars The Strypes, and former Priory Hall resident Stephanie Meehan.

We take a look back to 1982 when The Boomtown Rats performed on the show and Gay Byrne chatted to Bob Geldof about fashion and playing gigs in India. Both Bob and Gay have something to say about what each other are wearing.
