Why not one more nice one of “The Edge”?

(Review and other photos above and back one page.)

Since it looks like UF do not have a local show until August (maybe their summer vacation is coming, and I don't want this thread to become archived in the meantime), let me tell you about the two shows they have scheduled for the upcoming week.

Next Friday (May 17), UF are playing at Crystal Bee's in Southington, CT (8 p.m. showtime), and on the following night, they are playing at a venue listed as "Student Prince" in Springfield, MA (7 p.m. showtime). After those two, it looks like they are potentially off until August. Of course, if anything changes, I'll let everyone know.

How does a person decide he or she is going to imitate Bono and go do gigs?    Fascinating.

It is a pretty cool visual effect in the picture, isn’t it? 😄

His voice is spot on - @CorkVegan and @Vertigo3333 will back me up on that. 😎

Lol   I believe you, however, I always want to read what any Zootpian has to say.   It is eerie looking at the pic.  I would not have known it was not Bono.  Lol

How can a guitarist possibly think he can play Edge's guitar?   How does he figure out how to get those sounds?   Crackles and farts come randomly, I imagine.  Trying to replicate them?  

Do they just do U2 or do they do other stuff on their own?  (different gig)

Well, remember that all four of them are just like us: they are U2 fans.

The guitarist was someone who was a fan of Edge's guitar playing. He tried out to see what he could play on his own - he learned that. Then he tracked down all the information that he could about Edge's equipment - over time, he got better by practicing a lot and getting better gear. He found three other like-minded individuals who went on the same journey with their own particular instruments. They became a tribute band.

I have heard that there is even a group on FB of guitarists in U2 tribute bands where they share information (I can't confirm that - I'm not on FB). All it takes is practice and devotion.

The last two shows I saw they did a cover of "Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. II" as an encore - he nailed David Gilmour's playing too. 😎

I think the group U2two is pretty darn good.

Nonetheless, though I'm not a "band", this is my humble cover of a great song (I wish there were more piano-based U2 songs - love love love "SWEETEST THING"):

That's really good! Thank you for sharing that!

 

Do you have a website for U2two, or do they have a FB page or equivalent? The whole point of this thread is to promote U2 tribute bands worldwide, so please share any info you have!

Appreciate the compliments, dmway.

I bet they're quite easy to look up - just put the band name into youtube. 👍

Bump to keep the thread from archiving.

Shows are coming in August and the autumn. 😎

The last three dates from the list above are coming up soon.

...AND...

On Friday, October 11th, UF are playing the Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, NH. So, if you are in that part of New England, they are coming!

Also, the previous weekend, they are playing in Albany, NY (I think on Saturday, Oct. 5th, but I have to check on that.) Their autumn schedule is filling out. Of course, when I know more dates, I’ll post them here.
