Brazilian U2 Fans Party To Celebrate Joshua Tree Tour

@U2, October 26, 2017
By: Fernanda Bottini

 

I once heard that Brazilians know how to celebrate. Coincidentally, The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 ended in Brazil with four shows in São Paulo. And the best way to gather up all the fans was to have a party.

Last Friday, the U2 Brasil fan club organized a gathering at Cine Jóia, where fans from Brazil and from around the world could celebrate this tour and U2’s music. The first performance of the night featured the Scottish band December. It was their first time in the country, so it was very special for them and for us. The show was amazing; I was very impressed with their ability to arrange new chords for the songs we know, turning them into beautiful new ones. You can see short videos of their performance here: “Surrender,” “Bad,” “Shine Like Stars/Love Will Tear Us Apart” and “God Part II.”

Brazilian cover bands U2 Cover Alive and U2 Ultraviolet Band (pictured) played as well. What I like most about cover bands is that the performers are fans like us. They know what we love and, what we want U2 to play, so great performances were guaranteed.

The day of the party, Oct. 20, was also Boy’s anniversary, and we had the pleasure of watching the bands play some songs from this album. The Pop lovers went crazy when they heard “Last Night On Earth.” And of course, they played The Joshua Tree hits. Here are videos of “Where The Streets Have No Name” and “Exit/Gloria.”

It was an incredible night! I met old friends and fans from several countries, people I’d had the chance to connect with only via social media. I was very happy to share my U2 passion with all of them. It was a big celebration, and I hope to meet with those people again and make new friends soon.
