early 2000 the band receives the greatest compliment possible.
In an exclusive interview to MTV, Bono is asked how he
feels about U2 tribute Achtung Baby. He replies "I'm
quite flattered by what they do". Also in 2000 the
band appear on BBC1's Battle of the Tribute Bands",
a one hour TV Special. Achtung Baby are chosen from 200
tributes to appear with 5 other acts in the search for
the UK's finest. The show hosted by Terry Wogan and Ulrika
Jonsson. The band is voted the best sound-alike tribute
band in the UK. Finally in 2001, Andy (Vocalist) appears
on the Pulp single, Bad Cover Version as Bono. The single
is a send up of the 1985 band aid song, Do They Know It's
Christmas. The single and DVD Video is available at HMV
stores. And so we come to the present day and Achtung
Baby continue to play sell-out shows across the UK. The
band would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone
from family, friends, agents, venue owners and mostly
you The Fans for what has been the most amazing adventure.
Long may it continue.

Renowned for their quality musicianship, U2's are guaranteed to leave an audience wanting more.

U2's have been described as the best U2 tribute act around, with excellent vocals, crunching guitars and a tight rhythm section. The band take pride in playing everything live completely live, including all intros. There are absolutely no backing tracks here. If you love U2, having U2's perform at your event is an absolute must!

one man UB40 tribute show stands well above most other
UB40 tributes, with the star of this show Shaun E.B sounding
very similar to Ali Campbell himself. Shaun has put this
show together as a tribute to his life long favourite
band that he grew up with as many of us did. All of the
backing tracks used in this show have been specially made
as exact replicas of the original tracks by a top reggae
producer and Shaun E.B himself, so you can be assured
you will receive a show like no other. Whilst others claim
to be the only tribute to Ali Campbell in the UK Shaun
E.B claims only that by booking the UB40 tribute show,
he will give you a fun packed unforgettable evening of
pure magic that wont be forgotten in a very long time
Much time and expense has gone in to selecting the audio
equipment that is used in this show, to ensure the best
sound possible is created for any size venue from a small
pub to a large sized marquee. Shaun E.B has over ten years
experience as a singer and entertainer and has performed
in various other countries such as Belgium & Holland
over the years. As well as being a fantastic singer Shaun
E.B is a great entertainer and the UB40 tribute show is
one not to be missed.
