Now a days there are very few real rock bands left over from the glory days of the 70s and 80s. Among them AC/DC, Van Halen, Journey, and Guns-N-Roses. Another name that belongs on this list is U2. Look, I know U2 is an acquired taste.

They aren’t exactly my personal favorite group, but I’m willing to give respect where respect is due. Bono’s signature vocal tone and The Edge’s catchy guitar riffs make for a pretty memorable combination, and it’s definitely a big part of why their music has stood the test of time.

If you or someone you know happens to be a fan of U2 then you should definitely check out the U2 tribute “Rattle and Hum.” It’s taking place on Friday, January 18th at the Le Musique Room in St. Michael.  Doors will open at 7:15 pm with the show starting at 8, and tickets are available online now for as cheap as $27.
