On July 29, 2015, @U2 hosted its 20th anniversary party at The
Cutting Room in New York City. Our special guests for the evening were
the fantastic U2 tribute band, Unforgettable
Fire -- who, coincidentally, were also celebrating their 20th
anniversary this year.
We had prizes to giveaway, a presentation with the African Well Fund and two
giant, delicious cakes all planned as part of our party festivities.
Not planned was the sudden and surprise appearance of both The Edge and
Adam Clayton, who showed up a little before 9:00 p.m. and played two
songs with Unforgettable Fire -- much to the shock and delight of
everyone in the club.
It was a night we'll never forget.
Huge thanks, obviously, to Adam and Edge and all of the U2 crew who
made it possible -- from Dallas Schoo to the band's security team to
their publicists and management. Thanks also to Unforgettable Fire for
a fantastic evening of U2 music. Thanks to the Cutting Room team. And
most of all, thanks to all of our readers -- the ones in the venue with
us and those around the world who couldn't join us this time. You're
the reason this website has survived and thrived for 20 years.
