The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and atu2.com present a U2 Fan Celebration

Fan celebration marks opening of new section of U2 exhibit
CLEVELAND (May 1, 2003) - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and atu2.com will host a U2 Fan Celebration at the Museum on Saturday, June 14. The celebration is in conjunction with the exhibit IN THE NAME OF LOVE: Two Decades of U2 that the Museum opened in February 2003. The event is FREE with Museum admission and will take place during Museum hours, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The celebration marks the opening of the newest section of the U2 exhibit. Artwork from graphic designer Steve Averill and his Dublin-based team at FOUR5ONE studios, who have been working with U2 from the very beginning, will be featured on the Museum's Fourth Floor. The exhibit will include album cover concepts that have never been used as well as many other looks that U2 has gone through.

Other entertainment during the day will include U2 collectibles and merchandise on display and offered for sale, a video confessional booth (the tapes will be sent to U2), and performances by the U2 tribute band EXIT starting at 1:00 p.m. EXIT, who hails from Los Angeles, California, is unique in the fact that they are an all-girl U2 tribute band.

The Museum and atu2.com are also proud to present An Evening with FOUR5ONE. Steve Averill and his team of designers will discuss the work they have done with U2 in the Museum's Fourth Floor Theater at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 14.

In conjunction with the U2 Fan Celebration at the Museum, the Hard Rock Caf Cleveland will be hosting evening events. On Friday, June 13, EXIT will be performing at 10:00 p.m. There will be a cover charge. On Saturday, June 14, the Canadian U2 tribute band Elevation will perform at 10:00 p.m. The cover charge will be waved to attendees with a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum wristband from the Fan Celebration.
