U2 Events: @U2's 20th Anniversary Party

July 29, 2015, The Cutting Room, New York City

20th Anniversary Party

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.
