Mount Pocono, PA – January 1, 2012 – Mount Airy Casino Resort, the Poconos landmark destination is excited to host a U-2 Tribute by one of the foremost cover bands – Unforgettable Fire – on Saturday March 17. Starting at 8:00pm the band will perform songs from one of Rock and Roll’s all time greatest bands, U2, in Gypsies Lounge and Nightclub. Tickets are $10.
Unforgettable Fire, or “UF”, formed on New Years Day in 1995 and became one of the very first U2 tribute bands to ever perform in America. After over thirteen years of playing in some of the most prestigious venues on the East Coast, UF has formed a reputation among many to be one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show.
The members of UF are dedicated to complete authenticity. In addition to performing a very impressive array of U2 material from pre-Boy to the most recent How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb and beyond, the band does everything in their power (from wardrobe to lighting) to recreate the live U2 concert setting for their audiences.
“We are very excited that Unforgettable Fire will be bringing their talents to Mount Airy Casino Resort,” said John Culetsu, Executive Vice President and General Manager. “With such musical talents and dedication to authenticity, we guarantee the best possible U2 cover show that can be delivered,” added Culetsu.
