ONE OF THE BEST U2 TRIBUTE BANDS IN THE WORLD

WHY
U2 Tribute Band exist to help people, some of whom may not be able to see the real U2, discover the power of U2's music live. U2 Tribute Band believe that the music of U2 is inspirational and can help contribute to a more positive world.

U2 Tribute Band started with two brothers and an absolute passion for the music of U2. U2 was, and is, the soundtrack to their lives literally spanning from "cradle to grave". Initially forming as a duo featuring just Bono and the Edge (act2baby) the brothers felt that backing tracks for drums and bass did not do the songs justice and so they began to look for musicians to create a full four piece band. The band renamed themselves as U2 Tribute Band (U2B) in 2014 in order to reflect the change from a duo, and to clearly identify themselves as a U2 Tribute Band.

WHAT
The U2 Tribute Band mission is to play the music of U2, live, to as many people on the planet as they possibly can. U2 Tribute Band seek to accurately recreate the sounds, the sights and the energy that is U2. They have invested a massive amount of time and money in recreating the feeling of a U2 show which they believe is of utmost importance. Building their own guitar FX and a show control rack, affectionately known as "U2D2", the band deliver a highly polished show with pride.

WHERE
U2 Tribute Band entertain audiences at pubs, clubs, parties and more commonly at large festivals and corporate events. They are based in the UK but have played gigs world wide.

WHO
U2 Tribute Band are a group of talented musicians in their own right. With each member having over 30 years experience playing in original, covers and function bands, U2 Tribute Band bring a professionalism that is built from a base of knowledge of what works. Most importantly these guys are grounded in reality! They know they are not actually U2 and they know that the client, and the audience, is of paramount importance.

HOW
As previously mentioned the whole U2 Tribute Band show is controlled from a rack known as "U2D2". This is U2 Tribute Band's secret sauce and is a scaled down version of what U2 use to control the delivery of their shows. Stand alone in-ear monitoring run by the band themselves ensures that everyone is co-ordinated with the lightshow and other FX. All of the FX processing has been done in advance so that integration with front of house systems is a breeze. The in-house engineer simply gets fed individual channels and a quick mix delivers the U2 sound immediately. This delivers an extremely professional show, with a relatively small footprint (min. 5m wide by 3m deep for the full rig) and high impact.
