"U2Baby performed two magnificent shows for us the weekend U2 played Croke Park. They are THE U2 tribute that we fly to Ireland for our major events due to their authenticity, professionalism and absolute attention to detail. The guys are easy to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for the closest tribute to the real thing you can get."
Darren Moore, General Manager, The Church Cafe Bar and Restaurant Dublin
“I thought U2Baby were amazing. I think I prefer them to U2 - and it was much easier to get in!”

U2Baby recently played an intimate gig at Boyles of Slane in Ireland. They were also fortunate to be able to have a private visit to Slane Castle where they visited the rooms used to record the Unforgettable Fire. Below are a selection of images from the trip.

U2 fans at the Church Cafe Bar & Restaurant have really been enjoying the craic this week as they continue to pay homage to the best band on the planet. The #WelcomeToTheNorthside event, which is organised every time Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam gig in town, is in full swing and you can still take advantage of what is to come until Saturday 10th.
September in Malta is hot hot hot... and humid, but that didn’t stop the crowd getting behind the 90 minute set played by U2Baby at Swieqi Fest 2018.
Following their first visit to the Cavern in October 2017, U2Baby were rebooked to play in early 2018. This show was a complete sell out with 98% of the tickets selling out days before the gig.
An 8000 mile round trip, a 45 minute set and a 5000 strong crowd on the most impressive of stages... that was Tribfest Bahrain.
U2Baby have been selected from the many, many fine U2 tribute bands worldwide to return to The Church in Dublin as part of the U2 Fan Parties which will take place as part of #WelcomeToTheNorthside in November 2018.
U2Baby were honoured to grace the Cavern Club Live Lounge stage on 18th October. From the blistering opening "this is a song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles" Helter Skelter
U2Baby were recently engaged by the Church Cafe Bar and Restaurant to play two shows as part of the U2 fan parties the same weekend as U2 played at Croke Park.
U2Baby were recently engaged by Sporting Club Monaco to play at the world famous Salles des Etoiles (room of the stars) in Monte Carlo.
“Been at their pre and afterparty in The Church in Dublin on 06-11. If you don't know you'd really say they are U2! The music, gimmicks. it really seemed they just came from the 3Arena to play another concert in The Church.”
Cees Dool, from Facebook Reviews
“Front man really pulled out all the stops for Dublin 2 in the Church. What a showman. Really had to inspect him to check that it wasn’t actually Bono. The sound and the look is identical”
Shannon Breathnach, Dublin, Ireland
"U2Baby are the U2 tribute band of choice for the Cavern Club. They've played a number of sell out shows here and it seems to have become a fixture on the U2 fans calendar. We always look forward to welcoming the boys and their crowd back to Liverpool.”
Jon Keats, Director, Cavern Club Liverpool

“Me and my dad went to the Cavern gig on Friday night and it was the best night ever!! It’s one birthday that I will never forget! To be given a harmonica as a birthday present just topped it off- amazing! 10/10”
Chloe Croft, Facebook Review
“Just wanted to say a few words after seeing U2Baby at The Marrs Bar in Worcester this Saturday....Wow ! What an absolutely incredible show (again) ! We have seen them on a few occasions now, and as avid U2 followers, this tribute band ALWAYS deliver a very special performance. The look and sound of this band are perfect. More over, the feeling that they create is second only to U2 themselves, however with this band, you can get so much closer and more personal !They always recreate that high energy and deep emotion that can only be felt by listening to U2’s live music, and they take you on an epic 2 hour journey which you won’t want to miss ! Go and see this fantastic band !”
Jemma Phipps, Facebook Review
“Amazing show, the closest you can get to a U2 concert, Richard and the band they are easy to approach very nice people - top notch.”
Diego Sabino, London
Much much much better tribute band than I could ever imagine, outstanding live performance in Worcester-Marrs Bar, can't wait to see them again.. Well done!”
Petr Toman, Marrs Bar, Worcester
“The full package. Seen you a few times and it just gets better and better. The look, The sound, The Atmosphere ... Second to none.”
"This HAS to be the best U2 cover band in the world!"
"Man for a second I thought it was U2, the sound, the clothes and the attitude..."
Alf Dunstan Petersen, Norway
"It takes true devotion to sound like that! You guys are incredible! One of the best U2 cover bands I've heard!"
Gigi Gonzales, New York City, USA
"Soaring vocals & quality musicianship combine for an impressive & enjoyable tribute indeed! Eagerly awaiting your US West Coast tour!"
Deborah Perpetua, Washington, USA
"Just watched U2Baby in Aylesbury. What a great set-list, even better than the real thing. Great crowd, great drink and great company. The band? Edge was on fire, and "Bono" was a little pocket dynamo, hit the high notes and did a really beautiful Every Breaking Wave. The drums were tight, the sound mixing was spot on and the whole band seemed to really have a great time. I've seen a few U2 tribute bands over the years and these guys were by far the best, by a long shot. If you get the chance, go see them, I'd go again."
Mark Leddie, posted on Facebook after Shootpool Aylesbury 2017
"So glad we came, we had a brilliant night, my voice has gone this morning! You guys are so talented. Will definitely be seeing you perform again. My David said he felt like he'd just been to an intimate gig with U2 for fifteen quid."
Karen Chisman following Norden Farm Centre for the Arts
"I am the most loyal and longest serving u2 fan ever. I've seen them over 65 times! I know every song, every lyric... I never ever thought you could get a tribute that sounds so much like Bono and the band. Absolutely brilliant :)). Made my day."
Andrea G, Maidenhead, UK
''I've heard of U2Baby long before I actually got to see them live. And I have to say, I was blown away! If you need a little U2 fix, during this withdrawal period, I highly suggest you go see this band. Besides (freakishly!) reminding of U2 in looks, they sound great, too! During the gigs at the Church Pub, they took us back to the Innocence+Experience tour instantly, by playing the well known setlist, as well as some major surprises. The audience responded so well- they seemed to have such easiness to them and they connected with fans immediately. I will definitely go see them the first chance I get!''
Amra (who Bono christend Miss Sarajevo) - who has been on stage multiple times with U2
"Your band is f*&^*@g awesome."
Trish Weedon who has been on stage twice with U2 on the Innocence to Experience tour 2015
"I watched, I listened, I shed a few happy tears, I sang along and danced. At times their performance was so powerful it was like watching the real deal all those years ago. Only two bands have ever caused me to feel such raw powerful emotion. One is U2 & the other is U2Baby. When a performance grabs you heart and soul and causes your emotions to leak uncontrollably from your eyes you know they're damned good!"
Lissy - Worcester
"It was a real pleasure to mix these guys. Using their stand alone system for in ear monitoring, they sent me 6 channels + drums to mix. With no monitoring send needed, FOH was a real pleasure to mix. The technology used by U2Baby made my job real simple. Their hard work and technical know how made for an easy and proficient mix! Well done guys! It was a perfect formula - keep it up!!"
Brendan McGreal, CornishUnderGround
"Loved your band and your technical knowledge and show rig made it a whole lot easier for my sound team. Great working with a bunch of professional musicians who are also nice blokes to boot. See you on the next one mate!"
Mike Fogg, Manchester PA Hire (www.manchesterpa.co.uk)
"U2Baby played The Tap on the Sunday night of May Day Bank Holiday weekend and went down a storm. Very authentic sound which pulled in a great crowd who loved every second. Can't wait to get them in again."
Matt Heritage, The Brewery Tap Abingdon Oxfordshire
"We had U2Baby perform a 45 minute set at our event in September at the Compleat Angler in Marlow in aid of the Longridge Activity Centre. The guys not only scarily looked the part but were pitch perfect and we were really pleased with the addition they made to the event. The guys were professional, capable and self sufficient. From an organisers point of view they were fantastic as we had already met at the venue a month before and knew where they were going to be set up, so they didn't need any hand-holding or guidance from us on the day, which made things so much easier. As a team we would definately recommend U2Baby for any event."
Simon Branney, Event Organiser
"The U2Baby duo helped us out by standing in at last minute to headline Thrupp Live - they played a blinding one hour set of all the best known U2 songs and looked and sounded just like Bono and the Edge."
Tom Clark . TAD Studios
"I booked U2Baby - a U2 tribute act - for a music & beer festival called Stonesfield Septembeerfest. In short they absolutely nailed it. The crowd loved them. If Bono and Edge had showed up I don't think it would have sounded any better. Brilliant performance guys. Together with Brendan McGreal awesome sound engineering it sounded fantastic out front."
Chris Bartle, Music Organiser, Stonesfield Septembeerfest
"Went to an 80's tribute festival at Ashton-on-Mersey Rugby Club in Sale. U2Baby were fantastic. They made my husband's night by playing his favourite song Bad. U2Baby are the best U2 tribute band we have seen. They all looked and sounded like the real band. Would definitely see them again."
Samantha Ince Visser, at Manchester's 80sFest 2016
""Bono should be worried, as the singer could easily take his job! Favourite memories of the night were New Year's Day and the fact they included two tracks from their first album Boy and explained how they started the band. "We'll shine like stars in the summer night, We'll shine like stars in the winter night, One heart, one hope" at the end of my favourite song 'With Or Without You' and finishing the U2 set with 'Bad'. I also liked the inclusion of snippets of songs like Ruby Tuesday - U2Baby have certainly done their homework. The best U2 tribute band I have seen."
Gill Watts, at Manchester's 80sFest 2016
"Looking for a band to headline a festival is always going to be difficult especially when it is your first but from the very start U2Baby have been nothing less than a joy to work with. So many people came up to me after the gig to say how wonderful they were as a band and more than one said that they felt it was THE real U2 on stage due to the careful attention to detail. I cannot recommend this band highly enough. ”
Gillian Potter-Merrigan, Director, 80sFest 2016
"U2Baby headlined Trib Fest Bahrain 2018 and gave the 5000 strong festival crowd an amazing show that they absolutely loved. The boys really rocked it and the crowd sang along to hit after hit. I've had superb feedback on their set from the attendees. We will 100% be having them back for this and other events in the future."
