About this Act

U2-2 was formed by current members, way back in 1993, under the name Achtung Baby (this is the original band). During the '90s, the band became the biggest tribute to U2 in the world and they performed over 1000 shows. The band toured all Britain, Ireland, the Channel Isles, Europe and even the middle-east.

After sell-out shows in Birmingham (Robin/JBs) and London, the band toured all Ireland, from Coleraine to Cork and became Eires favourite U2 show. A performance at the Point Depot in Dublin, saw the band play to over 7,000 people!

Re-forming in 2007, the band hit new heights in Ireland, with three perormances at the Belfast Empire Hall, two performances with Keith Duffy of Boyzone and also helping to raise over 4000 for Irish Cancer Fund.

In 2009, Blackberry asked the band to promote their latest curve phone, Sheffields Meadowhall asked the band to perform as part of the official 360 tour experience and BBC1 and ITV1 featured the band on prime time TV.

U2-2 boast the best in audio, creating all of U2's sounds in detail and they certainly are the best look-a-likes in the world - something U2s own security would grudgingly agree with after they got the bands mixed up before a performance alongside U2 at Feyenoord Stadium in 97.

Some of the past venues the band has performed in, include: Sheffield Arena & Don Valley Stadium, Londons Forum & Venue, Dublins Olympia theatre and Belfast University.

In 2011, the band were joined on vocals by Irishman, Brian O'Glanby. Brian has worked for over seven years in an Irish U2 tribute and he has performed infront of U2.
