To quote Bono, "You do the show, you do the business. I guess that's why they call it 'Show Business'." And, in show business, it's both the "show" and the "business" that make a successful event. As a U2 tribute band, it's not only the message and power of U2's music that a Mysterious Ways show conveys, but the intimacy and interactiveness that comes from a U2 show - the key word here is "show." Determined to be a tribute band that delivers, Mysterious Ways puts on a show - a concert - bringing the U2 arena concert experience to the smaller venues. Emulating that intimacy, intensity and interaction that IS a U2 concert, Mysterious Ways brings everything but the Lemon Spaceship! With their own lighting, video backdrop, sequences, and, above all, the ability to sound so much like U2, Mysterious Ways leaves the crowds they have played to begging for more , feeling as if they, in fact, just saw U2. And THAT is the "business" that Mysterious Ways is in!
Playing songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday, Where The Streets Have No Name, Pride (In The Name Of Love), I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With Or Without You, One, Mysterious Ways, Vertigo, Beautiful Day, New Year's Day, All I Want Is You, Desire, Stuck In A Moment, I Will Follow, and many, many more, Mysterious Ways will leave you spellbound and feeling as though you're in the midst of a U2 World Tour.
