ACHTUNG BABY is no ordinary U2 tribute show. Sure, the singer looks exactly like Bono, but that’s just the start. Unlike other U2 cover bands, he actually sounds like Bono too. Audiences are delighted in the way he charismatically owns the stage – just like the real Bono. His powerful vocal range and subtle nuances reflect Bono’s unique style to perfection and sometimes it’s hard to remember that ACHTUNG BABY are not the real thing.It’s all about the music for ACHTUNG BABY and audiences know it. From the early hits, I Will Follow and New Years Day, to the classic anthems, Where the Streets Have No Name, Pride and Sunday Bloody Sunday, right up to recent hits like Vertigo, Elevation and Beautiful Day, ACHTUNG BABY will take their audience on a journey spanning 30 years of U2’s musical history.
Sasha who sings as U2’s Bono in the band says “One of our most thrilling gigs is playing to 35,000 people at the Sydney St Patrick Day Festival in Hyde Park each year. We’ve played as the headlining act for the past 5 years and after a long day of festival activity, the audience is ready to rock to U2 music. It’s crazy!”
The four members of ACHTUNG BABY are talented musicians with a great passion for creating and sharing the magic of U2’s music. It must be said that although the singer looks exactly like Bono, ACHTUNG BABY is not just another concept show… Unlike other U2 bands that rely on props and gimmicks, ACHTUNG BABY are all about the music and the live experience and atmosphere that is truly U2.
It takes a special chemistry to re-create U2’s music live and clearly these guys have that chemistry.
