UABRS is an acclaimed U2 tribute band that passionately recreates authentic U2 concerts. Covering the War tour in 1983 to present day, each show has amazed fans with their ability to recreate famous U2 shows and has solidified their reputation for sold out venues - including the world-famous Red Rocks!

Billy Bunting had been a rabid U2 fan since he saw the band in New Haven, CT in 1981. Billy never forgot Bono climbing up to the balcony of this old theatre singing “Sunday Bloody Sunday” at the top of his lungs and thought, “I want to do that!” From that point forward, Billy immersed himself in U2 music and that event helped shape Billy as a singer. After 20+ years as professional musicians, Billy and Jerry Bousquet returned to their roots and formed UABRS. UABRS got its start by recreating the legendary 1983 "Live at Red Rocks" concert on New Year's Eve 2005 at a sold out show at the Paramount Theater in Denver, CO. It went over huge!!! The fans were taken back to that foggy June 5th evening and ended the night by singing the refrain from "40" as the band left the stage. It was EXACTLY like Red Rocks and Billy “Bono”, Ted “The Tedge”, Todd “Adam” and Jerry “Larry” have never looked back – providing fans the best U2 experience this side of Dublin!!

Not only does UABRS play and sound like U2, their amazing attention to detail creates a visual experience that the most ardent U2 fan would recognize. UABRS makes every effort to replicate wardrobe, stage props, video/audio choreography, instruments and equipment from many famous U2 concerts around the world.

In August 2007, UABRS was the first U2 tribute band to ever play Red Rocks amphitheater. Fans reminisced at the sold-out venue as the band recreated the ultimate U2 experience not seen or heard since June 1983. The music of U2 echoed off the walls of Red Rocks with over 9,000 fans chanting the lyrics of great U2 songs such as With or Without You, Pride (In the Name of Love), and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Come out and sing along with them....and feel the power of one of the greatest bands of our time.
