U2 2 - The U2 Tribute
Date: 10th February 2018
Details:  U2 2 return to The Citadel theatre. Now in their 26th year on the road, the band are the ultimate in
look-a-like / sound-a-likes. With an impressive history (from Achtung Baby to now) U2 2 are known
for their sounds and resemblance to the real U2. Often mistaken for the real thing, no praise can be
higher than from Bono himself. When U2’s staff come out to see the band play, you know they’re as
good as it gets. Not just musically either, as the band were hired as look-a-likes by Blackberry to promote the Curve mobile on U2’s 360 tour.

Past concerts include Dublin’s Point Depot, where the band played to a packed house and a special show in Monaco, where the band performed for Pernod-Ricard. U2 2 have headlined many festivals, helped launch a radio-station and performed numerous times on national TV. Having worked with The Edge’s cousin on Mencap charity shows, their other clients include BBC1, ITV1, RTE, SKY and the 2012 Olympics. The band will be perfoming two hours of ultimate U2 songs and if you’ve never seen U2 2, now is the time to find out why they’ve been number one U2 tribute for a quarter of a century.

‘We’re flattered by what they’re doing’ – Bono
‘Seen them a few times, they’re the best, quite stunning’ – Aaron Govern U2 staff member
‘Amazeballs! The best in the world‘ – Ciara Lawrence Edge’s cousin & Mencap
‘Awesome show guys, I look forward to seeing you again‘ – Winston Ellis Hollywood actor
‘You only need Jo the sound man stood next to you’ – Keith Duffy Boyzone
‘The greatest U2 tribute in the world’ – Suggs Madness
‘You look more like them than they do’ – Carol Decker T’Pau

Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf
Date: 11th February 2018
Details:  Presented by Unity Theatre and Action Transport Theatre

A small figure sets off, with red cloak and hood
to grandmas they go, the other side of the woods

Do not stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds
or climb a tall tree, remember these words…

Do not leave the path, for you’d make a tasty treat!
For the hungriest wolf of all, who is ready to eat!

Join us for a bold and highly theatrical re-telling of the well-known classic tale packed with music, dance and song.

The production explores the thrill of adventure and unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be, as well as the tension between mankind and nature. Are the wolves really the villains in a world where the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And is Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

“Perfectly formed… recaptures the art of sharing folktales by the fireside” – The Stage

Doors: 2:00pm

On stage: 2:30pm

£7/£5

Live/Wire The AC/DC Show
Date: 16th February 2018
Details:  Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The AC/DC story is over forty years in the making, with two specific eras and the band cover both these as always with both ‘Gary’ Bon Scott and ‘Pete’ Brian Johnson present to take you on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember. Originally fronting AC/DC was legendary front man Bon Scott, a wild man of rock and roll, whose untimely death shocked the world in 1980. This event came at a time when the band was sampling global success for the first time. Gary delivers songs from the Band’s first half dozen albums from Dirty Deeds to Highway to Hell with Bon’s inimitable attitude and style. Pete, then dons the flat cap as Geordie vocalist, Brian Johnson, whom AC/DC turned to in order to fill the void left by Bon. Brian’s searing vocals Iced Back in Black, one of the best-selling rock albums of all time! Brian has now been with AC/DC for well over thirty years and like a good wine he’s matured with age. Pete brings the Live/Wire show bang up to date with classic ‘Brian’ songs and includes some tracks from AC/DC’s recent and hugely successful new album, Rock or Bust.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados! We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway to hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE
