The Spiral Theory’s Guelph debut show at Tavern On Grange celebrating the legendary history of The Police, U2, R.E.M.! Two full sets dedicated to the amazing music they created as the pioneers of modern rock! The third set covers the best from other influential modern rock acts (The Black Keys, Maroon 5, Bryan Adams, etc.). Cool music, amazing food, cold beer, great times guaranteed!
The Police, U2 and R.E.M.most successfully melded together the sounds of new wave, classic rock and punk, giving new life to guitar-oriented rock with a conscience. The connection between the three bands goes even deeper…
In 1983, The Police is selling out stadiums across North America as the world’s most popular rock band. Their opening act, on their first national tour, is barely known R.E.M.. In 1985, U2 plays the Longest Day festival in Athens, Georgia with R.E.M. on the same bill. Bono later stated meeting Michael Stipe on that day, and their ensuing friendship, was “one of the most important moments of my life.“ On the final show of the 1986 Amnesty National Tour at Giants Stadium in New York, The Police symbolically take their instruments off during “Invisible Sun” and pass them over to U2, who then finish the song before starting their own set. The torch is officially passed. By 1991, with the releases of “Achtung Baby” and “Out of Time”, U2 and R.E.M. have become “the most important rock bands of a generation, setting a new standard for how arena rock concerts could feel and how they could communicate” – The Chicago Tribune. #guelph #wellington #livemusic #thepolice #u2 #REM #classicrock #alternativerock #modernrock #tribute #covers #bands #tavernongrange
