U2 Fans In Chicago???

Hey,

I will be moving to Chicago from Berlin in a few months and want to get in contact with the locals, do the U2 thang. I hear there is a tribute band there also. Can anyone bring me up to speed/get in contact?

Thanx!

Shane O'C.

p.s. Here is a little bit of U2's Berlin for you!

Hi Shane

I live in Chicago. I hope you'll like it here.

Yeah, we have a U2 Tribute Band...Elevation. (USA, not Canada).

Here's a link to their website.

ELEVATION USA

They're in Chicago almost every weekend and they're really good.

Hope to see you around!

Well, it sounded like shaneo was looking to get together with some folks. We'll see what happens. For now, I'll leave this thread here.

They're playing with Reckoning - R.E.M. Tribute both shows. The bass player for Elevation also sings as Michael Stipe. And Greg, the guitar player from Elevation, will be sitting in with Reckoning on these two shows.

It should be a good time.

I'm pretty much at every Elevation show. If you are going to Fado for the CD release get there EARLY. That place fills up and is packed wall to wall. A ton of people from U2 Midwest will be there as well. I've probablly seen you at a show, maybe even met you but just don't know it hehe.
