Bij deze al weer het laatste interview in de rubriek “even voorstellen”. De mannen van U2UK kijken uit naar aanstaande zaterdag en wij ook, dat wordt knallen!
When was U2UK founded?
Paul – singer – In 2001 I entered a competition called ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ I entered as Bono and the show was aired in March 2002 It was that which helped me to decide to form a U2 tribute band, all I needed was a Guitarist, a Bass player and a Drummer who were as big a group of U2 fans as I was… U2UK formed in December 2001, our first gig was in March 2002 we did our first gig on the same day the Stars in Their Eyes Show was aired. The same day the Queen Mother died.
Did you ever met the U2 members?
Simon – Guitarist – unfortunately no we have never met them
Did U2UK ever played in Holland before?Ady – Bass player – Yes we have, we played twice at the Giant Tribute Festival in Rotterdam at the Ahoy, we played the U2 after show party at the Heineken Concert Hall in Amsterdam, and a couple of other shows in Holland with Mammoth Productions so we are really looking forward to being there again and are hoping we will meet up with some old friends whilst we are there!
What do you expect from Buttonpop Tribute Festival?
Nathan – Drummer – we have always had a great time when we have played central Europe and have some great memories from the Ahoy and other places in Holland. We find Europe has a very strong U2 fan base and we hope to bring U2’s magic to all at Buttonpop and that you will enjoy the show as much as we will – we’re really looking forward to it!
