I’ve never been to a concert of U2, but I came close to it yesterday. Here in Aschaffenburg (where I currently live) the cover band Achtung Baby was giving a Gig in Colos-Saal and it was really good!
Ok, there’s nothing better than the real thing, but if you can see for 9 EUR a good cover band, it comes close. The crowed were definitely U2 fans, most songs everyone was singing along and sometimes they even continued after the band stopped.
The singer made a joke in between that they just won 5 grammy awards, but they sent their undercover band to get them.
Anyway, I’m not good at doing such reviews, but if you are a fan of U2 go watch Achtung Baby: worth every EURO, IMHO!
