THE AUSTRALIAN U2 SHOW
Even Better Than The Real Thing?
After 18 years performing as Bono with his band The Australian U2 Show, Gary Morris was more than a little excited to hear that U2 themselves would be showing video footage of 'The Australian U2 Show' behind them on a giant screen whilst performing on stage. The footage was to be shown during U2’s performance of ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ at the already sold out performance at the massive Glastonbury festival in England.
When it comes to impersonating Bono no one does it better than Gary Morris - with or without sunglasses!! Gary has featured in television and radio commercials, in both Melbourne and Sydney, an infomercial for U2’s Telstra Stadium shows, the cover of magazines, and was asked to perform at U2 promoter Michael Coppel’s 60th birthday celebrations. Gary has performed with well known celebrities such as Mark ‘Dicko’ Dickson, comedians Ben Price and Gabriel Rossi, and was asked to appear at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and subsequent tour. Gary’s physical resemblance, spoken voice, and singing voice have fooled many, with Irish folk even asking “Are you Irish? You sound so much like the man!” Gary fooled a Sydney luxury car dealer into letting him test drive a $300,000 Mazerati. Well known magazine FHM and Today Tonight did a story on the event! Gary has even fooled U2’s security!
Touring both nationally and internationally, from the southern hemisphere to the north, the band has surprised, delighted and fooled crowds around the world with its authenticity. Performing Pub, Corporate and Private shows, no detail has been overlooked, the members of The Australian U2 Show have refined both the look and sound of their famous Irish counterparts, assuring both an exciting and memorable show, a want to see again show, The OZ U2 show, The Australian U2 Show.
What makes a band legendary rather than merely memorable? What ever it is U2 have certainly proven themselves to be more than just another band, and in a country renowned for its concept/tribute bands, The Australian U2 Show has been described by many as the best. The show was formed in 1992 by Peter Van Den Berg and Gary Morris after Peter spotted Gary on channel nine's world renowned 'Hey, Hey it's Saturday' because of his twin-like resemblance to Bono and vocal ability.
