Unforgettable Fire—a band that derives its name from U2's ethereal 2009 album—lights up the stage and its adjacent crowd, cranking out hits born in the brains of their world-renowned, real-world counterparts. During the band's three-night engagement, the rock shredders will pull from their namesakes' deep repertoire, catering to fans from every era of the band’s career, from the raw new wave to the emotional, riveting Joshua Tree and modern yet sleek All You Can't Leave Behind. Obsessive U2 fans themselves, each Dublin twin strictly enforces detailed authenticity in replicating the Irish band's sound and onstage aura, which includes reproductions of the band's set, wardrobe, and string-manipulating, fashion-smashing styles.
Doors open an hour before each show.
Intimate and minimalist in black lacquer and exposed brick, the Canal Room is as comfortable hosting '80s and '90s parties with celebrity impersonators as it is with A-list concerts starring Jay-Z, Elvis Costello, or John Legend. A VIP lounge area lined with palms and ebony booths flank a bright hardwood dance floor, where concerts and parties unfold. The calendar entices families and VIPs alike, and the facility also makes way for private events such as birthday parties and echo contests.
