Event Information

Title: Desire - U2 Tribute
Venue: Academy Theatre for Performing Arts

Every Rock music fan knows that U2 is the most popular band in the world, selling out concerts wherever they play within hours, and usually at ticket prices beyond reach for the average fan.  It would be incredible to imagine that a band would undertake the task of replicating the work of U2, both technically and vocally.  DESIRE has achieved that goal and is recognized as THE INTERNATIONAL WORLD CLASS U2 TRIBUTE SHOW.  Hailing from Grimsby, Ontario, this dedicated 4-pc band has played throughout North America leaving audiences speechless after experiencing the passion and authenticity of their performances.  DESIRE's musicianship and presentation skills are impeccable.  The song list is endless and includes such hits as 'Where the Streets Have No Name', 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' and the ever popular breakup ballad 'With or Without You' from U2's 30th Anniversary Blockbuster Album Joshua Tree.  This audience pleasing tribute is a must-see concert for all U2 fans everywhere at a reasonable price.

I am pleased to write this recommendation to you and your band for making a milestone Birthday Party a huge success! It was a “BEAUTIFUL DAY” and my guest of honour, FAN590 Sportsnet #1 broadcaster Bob McCown’s wife, couldn’t be happier with the band’s show! This is the biggest testament to the band and show. Simply put it was “MAGNIFICENT”!
The band’s talent was evident in the performance and the ability to connect with the group exceeded expectations, I’ve received numerous compliments from the guests since that evening “ALL BECAUSE OF YOU”.   LYDIA, EVENT COORDINATOR

Saw you guys at the Stage West Theatre shows in Calgary.  Absolutely blew my mind and expectations out of the water! Feel free to come back to Alberta anytime! I've been spreading the word!  CHRIS DE JONG, Calgary, Alberta
