U2 Tribute Acts
U2 are a very popular band all over the world and have been since the 1980s. They have sold more than 170 million albums and have won 22 Grammy Awards. This is more than any other rock band.
U2 formed in Dublin in 1976, when none of the members were brilliant musicians. However, they got better as they got older. They were more popular for playing live shows than for releasing albums. This changed with their hit record in 1987, The Joshua Tree. In 1991, U2 released a new album called Achtung Baby.
This album sounded very different from their other albums because it was inspired by alternative rock and dance music. Achtung Baby and its worldwide Zoo TV Tour were both very popular.
U2 experimented for the rest of the 1990s, making two other very different albums, Zooropa and Pop. In the 21st century, U2 returned to a more traditional sound, but they continue to be very popular and successful.
They are involved in charities and helping people with groups such as Amnesty International, Make Poverty History, the ONE Campaign, Live Aid, Live 8, Bono's DATA campaign, and Music Rising.
There are a variety of brilliant tribute acts for U2, available to book with the Champions Music and Entertainment agency.
