(There are more pictures from the show on the previous page.)

The setlist (not in order played) :

 

I Will Follow

Out Of Control

Sunday Bloody Sunday (w/ "Please" interpolated in the middle - that worked really well!)

New Year's Day

Pride

Streets (w/ names of the fallen on 9/11 on the screen like U2 did during the Super Bowl in 2002)

With Or Without You

Bullet The Blue Sky (complete with "Bono" using spotlight)

In God's Country

Desire

All I Want Is You

Until The End Of The World

Who's Gonna Ride You Wild Horses

Mysterious Ways

Beautiful Day

Miracle Drug (yes, really!)

Original Of The Species (yes, really, again!)

The Miracle Of Joey Ramone (the show opener)

 

(They may have played "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" too - I listened to live U2 on the way down to the venue, so I might be confusing which band played the song last night. 😄)

So, yes, they played for a while - so long that they had an intermission in the middle. They were ready to play and they played wonderfully. The crowd was very enthusiastic, with many dancing down front. A great evening which also honored the solemnity of the day.

I wish we had good U2 cover bands do shows by me.  I only saw one locally and it was bad.  I could not get through one song.  Luckily, I was in back and did not feel rude leaving.  May I please ask how much one of these shows costs?  I'm curious. It looks like they put effort/money into it.  I've seen other cover bands and enjoyed them.  I'm not sure why this is so weirdly (no negatives) fascinating to me.  I'd like to see a good one to find out.

I don't think any tribute bands have played near me since 2018. That one was free and awesome. :)

The prices vary by show - you can find ticket links on their websites. Can't remember what I've paid in the past.

A post mostly for @Manohlive, but also could be for anyone in WI.

UF is coming to Wisconsin in November! 😎

They are playing two shows, one on November 18th and another on the 19th. The venue is the Belfry Music Theatre in Delavan, WI. If that is close to you, and you happen not to be doing anything else, you can treat yourself to one of the best U2 tribute bands around. I hope you can catch them!
