ACROBAT models it's repertoire and performances after the best of U2's live concerts over the past 40 years - playing the top charted hits and rarities that satisfy both casual and hardcore fans alike. Each member is an avid fan who strongly believes that it is the live concert experience that has endeared U2 to it's fans most. The full ACROBAT experience features a costumed show augmented by stunning multimedia visuals as a backdrop.
ACROBAT was originally formed in 2004 as October, titled after U2's second album. Just prior to U2's 360 Tour original and newly joined members reached a consensus to rebrand the band after the number one most requested song that U2 had never played live: Acrobat, from Achtung Baby. While they could not have predicted the future, this foreshadowed U2 finally debuting the track live on the Experience + Innocence Tour in 2018.
On July 6, 2015, U2 fulfilled every tribute band members' ultimate dream by inviting us onstage to perform in front of 22,000 cheering U2 fans at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. Relive the moment with us by visiting our Video page, and read the numerous newspaper and music industry articles and interviews on our Reviews page. ACROBAT thanks U2 sincerely for granting us our wish and the opportunity to play on their stage!
