Based in Chicago, Without U2 recreates the sight and sound of the legendary Irish rock band U2 in an incredible fashion. We perform at all types of venues all over the USA, from small Irish pubs to outdoor fest stages, in full costume and using authentic gear.
Just like a real live U2 show, we perform extended singalong versions of all the hits such as One, With or Without You, Where the Streets Have No Name, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Mysterious Ways, New Year’s Day, Desire, Pride (In the Name of Love), Beautiful Day, I Will Follow, Out of Control, and Bad….You name it and we play it! We will design a setlist that meets your needs.
Our members are professional musicians and lifelong U2 fans. We will not settle for less than complete authenticity. While wading through the audience with his wireless mike, “Jono” Clarke (guitar/vocals/harmonica) belts out soaring vocals that rival Bono himself. Cory Sanders (guitar/vocals) recreates the tech guitar wizardry of “The Edge”, and Michael Koelling (bass) supplies the melodic low end of Adam Clayton. Jeff Kropp (drums/percussion) plays the role of Larry Mullen, Jr., with the the heart, soul and attention to detail that makes Without U2 the best rock band in the world.
