U2 tribute band to rock Kolkata
It’s going to be a Beautiful Day on October 6! Simply Kolkata caught up up with Mark ( Larry Mullen JR) of U2 tribute band Elevation: The U2 Experience that is performing in the city on October 6.
Q. How and when did you decide to form a tribute band to U2?
A. We’ve all played with bands in the US and had record deals with original work but it wasn’t enough. We were all fans of U2 and its music suited our sound the most. We formed Elevation in 2003.
Q. What are the most
requested songs that you get from fans?
A. That’s an easy one. It’s undoubtedly With Or Without You.
Q. Do you find creative satisfaction in playing covers?
A. If you’ve heard our version of U2’ s songs like Bullets In Blue Sky or Forty you’ll see we find a middle ground between playing covers and finding our own sound.
