"More than just another U2 Cover Band, L.A.vation is a true U2 Tribute Band that accurately executes the music and the look of a REAL U2 concert…"
Based in Los Angeles, California, the entertainment capitol of the world, L.A.vation derives it's name from the hit song "Elevation", the third single released from U2's 2000 album, All That You Can't Leave Behind.
L.A.vation has faithfully crafted an amazingly accurate show, incorporating memorable stage elements from past U2 concerts with "spot-on" musical execution, all the while emphasizing the pride and passion of the four lads from Dublin.
L.A.vation has performed in Europe (The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Iceland), the Middle East & Asia (Dubai-UAE, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Lebanon), Africa (Egypt), the Caribbean (Dominican Republic), North- & Central America (USA, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador), and South America (Colombia), with many more international shows coming up.
Some of the corporate events & private shows that L.A.vation has performed for are:
Facebook, Rolling Stone LA, BMW/Mini, Playboy Mansion, Natural Products Expo, NAMM, Mac Mall, PC Mall, Abbvie Pharmaceuticals, RHCC Foundation, Radiorama Mexico, GLAZA, Operation HOT (USO Tour with Chef Robert Irvine and football coach Lou Holtz), actress Sela Ward, and many more.
L.A.vation is available for stadium shows, festivals, clubs, casinos, weddings, birthdays, concerts in the park, Christmas parties, fundraisers, churches, Armed Forces Tours (USO Tours), as well as private parties and corporate events within the U.S. and around the world.
According to audiences and fans across the world, L.A.vation is truly The Next Best Thing.
No other U2 Tribute Band or U2 Cover Band sounds as close to the real U2 as L.A.vation.
L.A.vation astonishes with hit after hit from each of the band’s thirteen blockbuster albums, featuring crowd pleasers like “New Year’s Day”, “With Or Without You”, “Beautiful Day”, “One” and “Vertigo”.
Lead by the incomparable Jason Thiesen performing as Bono, this quartet has left no stone unturned to deliver the most accurate Tribute to U2, the greatest rock and roll band of its generation! Along with Bart Davis, who recreates the tech guitar wizardry of “The Edge”, bassist John Classick supplies the melodic low end of Adam Clayton. And true to his real-life counterpart, Larry Mullen Jr., drummer/music director Jorgen Ingmar Alofs provides the heart, soul and attention to detail that makes L.A.vation unrivaled, except perhaps by U2 themselves!
In addition to live performances, Jason Thiesen is also available as a Bono Impersonator for 'Meet & Greet' functions.
