U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

I think their guitarist certainly owes a debt to The Edge in guitar-playing style, but U2 is a rock band and Coldplay mostly isn’t.

I did like the joke, though! ?

If I ever meet "Chrono," as he sometimes calls himself, I'll ask him if he got the "when the banks became cathedrals" line in the Coldplay song "Violet Hill" from "Lemon" or from "The Playboy Mansion."

Thanks for the mention @Canadanne, and your kind words. Yes, we are still going and have been very lucky to play a lot of countries outside of the UK in the past few years.
We've just updated out gig list for this next year - we'd love it if you could make it to one of our shows again, the website you posted will be updated with the dates shortly but for up to the minute information please check out our facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/u2ukshow/ You can see our latest videos on there, but we also have a youtube channel if you want to have a listen/watch to some of our best versions of the mighty U2's music at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC81LrnZyNA4o3w-0Y9MBI3Q

Thanks again for your support and we'll hopefully see you again before too long.

Love and Peace - U2UK

I saw U2UK at the Harlequin Theatre in Redhill 10 years ago now. LOVED the show. I don't live in England now, but if I did, would love to see the band again.

I'm very glad that some of the tribute band members themselves are here! (Surely there must be more...I hope they post here).

Thank you for posting, Nathan!

I saw 2U (Notu2.com) a few times when they used to come up to New England, but they haven't come up my way in years, which is too bad b/c they were great.

Around the Boston/NH area in the US, we have Joshua Tree.  They don't dress as the band, they just play the music. They do a nice job. However, they don't play nothing from NLOH, SOI or SOE, and they play nothing from Zooropa either. Just the big hits.  I would love them to play more recent stuff, or more deep tracks.  http://joshuatreeband.com

An old friend of mine is in Zoo Station from the Bay Area, CA, and I got to see them once on a visit out there, and they were fantastic!!

OK - I’m still quite fatigued, but I’ll share a photo or two before a more proper review.

The band was so excited about our excitement from their performing that they joined us in the crowd! 😆
