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. This is the third year running that the band have been selected due to their ability to replicate a U2 show not only in sound, but in look and attitude. U2 are scheduled to play shows at the 3Arena in Dublin week commencing 5th November. U2Baby will play four sessions pre- and post- the U2 shows on the 5th and 6th Nov. In addition they will play a very special gig in Boyles of Slane on 4th November. If there is interest a coach may be organised to take people from Dublin to Slane and back. Later in the week our friends Zooropa will also be playing at the Church on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th . Zooropa are a Dublin based tribute to U2 with an awesome reputation so catch them if you are in town. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details of the event and timings - fb.com/theu2tributeuk
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, to the rip roaring encores of Bad, Beautiful Day and the Little Things That Give You Away the awesome crowd sung from beginning to end. When a technical fault took out the lead mic, the crowd took over singing Where the Streets Have No Name at the tops of their voices. It was a great night and will be repeated in April 2018. More than one person exclaimed that the lead singer had "morphed into Bono" with new look glasses and black denim jacket bringing the bands look bang up to date.

U2Baby were recently engaged by Sporting Club Monaco to play at the world famous Salles des Etoiles (room of the stars) in Monte Carlo. The venue has been graced by stars such as Frank Sinatra, Joe Cocker, Witney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Shirley Bassey Tina Turner and Sir Elton John. An amazing venue with windows that open out onto the bay and a roof which can be opened to literally reveal the stars. U2Baby were honoured to be selected for this prestigious gig and enjoyed an amazing response from the 700 strong crowd. The venue featured a moving stage upon which the band initially played in the centre of the room. However the crowd response was so good that the venue decided to move U2Baby back on the moving stage as they played, and lower a dance floor into place.
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. Darren Moore - General Manager of the Church said, "U2Baby performed two magnificent shows for us the weekend U2 played Croke. 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." U2Baby were also selected to play at the Hot Press Covers exhibition to a small audience of U2 fans and guests.
Why do people choose U2Baby for their events? Here are the reasons we have been given by recent clients....
1. "totally authentic sound of U2"
2. "U2Baby look like U2; the mannerisms and attitude of the band"
3. "U2Baby recreate the feeling of a live U2 gig."
4. "Really nice guys to deal with; no diva like attitudes"

"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!"
