During the 90's the band became the biggest tribute to U2 in the world. Truly 'look-a-like/sound-a-like' this tribute band set the standard that all others had to compete with. In 1995, the band played Sheffield Arena & Don Valley stadium and went on to gig in every city in Britain, Ireland and lots of Europe, including month long tours of Portugal and Holland. In 1997, with 'Wayne Taylor' on vocals, the band played alongside U2 at the massive Feynoord Stadium and such is the likeness of the band, they were led into U2's own changing rooms by mistake!

Other venues the band have played include The Dublin O2 arena (to over 7000 people) and The Olympia theatre. London's Forum & Venue and Dudley's Robin1/2 & JB's.

The band have also featured on many TV & Radio stations and in 2009, they played a gig in Sheffield's Meadowhall, as part of the U2/360 tour 'experience' where many shoppers were convinced it was the real U2 playing! The band were featured on both the BBC & ITV in a single day.

Also in 2009, U2-2 were chosen by Blackberry to help launch their new cell-phone and found time to gig in Doncaster to launch Sine FM radio.

In 2010 alone, the band are back to The Empire Hall in Belfast for a third visit ( the only U2 tribute to achieve this) to celebrate St.Patrick's night and they've also had return bookings for Ireland in Galway, Limerick, Cork, Belfast & Dublin. The band have signed to Morningside Management & will be appearing in theatres across Britain & Eire.

U2-2 also use authentic equipment (with home recorded sequencers) and boast the very best in sound & visuals to U2, anywhere in the world.
