While U2 may be busy in their studio working on a new album on the other side of the world, the musical and visual live atmosphere of one of the world’s greatest rock acts, can be experienced today though the musical proficiency of ‘The U2 Show: Achtung Baby’. Also known as U2AB for short, they will be playing for one night only at The Astor, on Friday May 25th.
The U2 Show: Achtung Baby, the international-touring tribute band is performing their most lavish show to date. This is a new show overflowing with all the U2 classics beloved by many, accompanied with all the flamboyance of costumes and stylings of Bono, Edge, Clayton and Mullen - as well as the visual animations and films that have featured in legendary U2 tours like Zooropa and U2:360. Like fans come to expect, the concert will feature impressive note-for-note renditions of U2’s greatest songs from renowned albums like Achtung Baby, The Joshua Tree, The Unforgettable Fire, All That You Can’t Leave Behind, Rattle and Hum, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, No Line on the Horizon - and many other surprise hit songs that take you back to a special time.
The show is played by a tight group of friends and talented musicians - Michael Cavallaro, Peter Kalamaras, David Attard and Craig Jupp - who have now played together the U2 classics to hundreds of thousands of fans, for over a decade, in every corner of Australia and in the Asia Pacific region. The show has been described by people (such as Mike Jacobson, Chairman of Balls at the world’s largest casino in China’s Macao), ‘the best entertainment for any ball EVER in Macao’.
That is because The U2 Show: Achtung Baby had been giving extreme and methodical attention to all the details that make up the U2 experience what it is - and painstakingly seeking to reproduce, each note, each sound, each nuance of performance and audience interaction. And this is precisely what keeps the fans coming back for more, year and year.
‘With or Without You’, ‘One’, ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I Was Looking For’, ‘Pride’, All I Want Is You’, ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’, ‘Vertigo’, ‘Desire’, ‘Mysterious Ways’, and ‘Beautiful Day’, are just a sample of over 20 of songs that will be performed on the night.
