I and about 8 other guards (Officers) would have provided band security too.

when you google "u2 tribute band", UF is the 4th link that pops up. ZS doesn't appear til the 3rd page. i'm just sayin. i'm not trying to turn this into a "band x is better than band y". i don't see why it is horrible for a great band to play to a new audience. ZS could always fly out to the east if they wanted to. we're all one big u2 fan-family

Def agree..... if a tribute band wants to fly/bus across the country or half-way etc ( ".....it's a big ountry....." ) to seek a new audience.... why not?

UF are excellent!
(even with only seeing one other U2 tribute band .... I know U2 music/ live performance well enough recorded and live to know)

Nor did I say this.



I'm sure they're great, otherwise all of you wouldn't be going to their shows.
If it hadn't been a private gig and not on a Wednesday, I would have loved to see them play.

It's nothing against UF.
I mean, if one of the biggest companies in the world is asking your band to play at one of their private events, of course you're not going to say no to that.
Wherever it is.
Heck, I'd say : if you pay for the plane ticket, I'll play for free.

Just thought it was odd (on Google's part).
'Cause if I were planning a party, I'd look for a band close to where I live.
But hey, I don't have billions of dollars.

Sorry for the thread derailment.
I'll get out now.

Its never one band against the other..never We are all just big fans. Im friends with all the other tributes out there as we always talk Edge gear/guitar stuff,and share settings and stuff like that. Google has a base here in NY and they saw us last fall as well as Evolution at another party we did. and thats how it happened. It didnt have anything to do with origin of band or whatever.To be honest I went into it blind as I didnt have alot of info on the gig and what it was about. I got home last night and Im very tired. I did get to see the bridge,Alcatraz,China town,some big Sea lyons,some huge hills Im not used too . We saw the Full House house. SF is a great city and so different than what Im used to. Im uploading some video we took from the gig on youtube today if interested. Anyways I have the utmost respect for all the tributes out there from ZS,JT,Elevation,UABRS,ect ect..Its alot of work and alot of fun

Mick

Wow back so soon?? It sounds like you did a lot in those few days! I've actually never been to the west coast. I should work on that.

I also admire all the tributes. I can only imagine how much work is put into what you all do. That takes a lot of heart! You know, you should totally go to ITH this year!! :nudgenudge:




14 days party people!!!
