"Without U2 are the complete tribute experience. They bring pro players that can not only play the part, but can deliver the look, sound, and feel of U2. When ever a client is looking for a great tribute experience, Without U2 is at the top of my list of bands to send." Josh Niemiera, Promoter at Double D Booking
Without U2 delivers a passionate and authentic portrayal of the real U2 experience. Casual fans will recognize the hits, diehards will love our "spot-on" U2 look and amazingly accurate performance.
Based in Chicago, IL, Without U2 is named after the song "With or Without You", from U2's breakthrough album The Joshua Tree.
Without U2 performs hits from all the albums, from Boy, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Rattle and Hum, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, All That You Can't Leave Behind, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, and No Line on the Horizon.
Our members are professional musicians and huge U2 fans. We will not settle for less than complete authenticity. Prior to Without U2, Duo (our Bono) entertained all over the world with Vertigo USA (U2) and Ten (Pearl Jam) to name a few, opening for such acts as Gin Blossoms, Quiet Riot, and the Bullet Boys. Bag Edge recreates the tech guitar wizardry of “The Edge”, and Adam Cakeman (bass) supplies the melodic low end of Adam Clayton. And true to his real-life counterpart, Larry Mullen Jr., drummer Kropper provides the heart, soul and attention to detail that makes Without U2 unrivaled, except by U2 themselves.
Without U2 is available for stadium shows, festivals, clubs, casinos, weddings, birthdays, concerts in the park, Christmas parties, fundraisers, churches, Armed Forces Tours (USO Tours), as well as private parties and corporate events within the U.S. and around the world.
