U2 trib­ute band to rock Kolkata

India Today - - SIMPLY 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.
