The internationally touring and world renown L.A.vation. This band derives its name from the Grammy award winning single "Elevation" from the hit album "All That You Can't Leave Behind." This band features Jason Thiesen as a spot-on Bono, backed up by Bart Davis, Jorgen Ingmar, and myself, as The Edge, Larry Mullin Jr., and Adam Clayton, respectively.
Jason Thiesen is an extraordinary rock tenor whose vocal sound bears an uncanny resemblance to Bono, so much so that he’s spent the better half of the last ten years touring the United States singing and performing the part. His stage presence, sound, and mannerisms are compelling, passionate, and most of all, incredibly Bono-like. He never fails to deliver. Backing him up is an experienced band of highly-skilled musicians that takes the look and sound of U2 to a new level. Capturing the essence of the U2 live experience, they are committed to honoring the original band through unfailing accuracy and an uncanny attention to detail. Including recorded backing tracks that faithfully replicate the backing tracks U2 uses live, L.A.vation has completely mastered the U2 sound. This is paired with an engaging and enthusiastic performance style that leaves no detail to chance. The result is a sound that is spot-on U2, and a performance that fully evokes the feel of a U2 concert.
