The Union County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to announce that the acclaimed U2 tribute band, Unforgettable Fire, will headline a free, live drive-in concert in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday night, March 20 at the Union County Vocational-Technical Schools campus, at 1776 Raritan Road in Scotch Plains.
The event is free but registration is required online in advance to reserve a spot. Reservations will be available on a first come, first serve basis beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 12, on the County website at ucnj.org/reserve.
Please note that space is limited and reservations book quickly.
“It’s a real pleasure to continue offering outdoor entertainment to the community, and we are looking forward to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in style with Unforgettable Fire and other special guests,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman Alexander Mirabella.
Unforgettable Fire, or "UF," is one of the very first U2 tribute bands to perform in America. With 25 years of experience in some of the most prestigious venues on the East Coast, UF has formed a reputation as one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show.
The members of UF are dedicated to complete authenticity, from the music itself to wardrobe, lighting, and other elements that recreate the live U2 concert experience.
The show will open with a performance by Ridgewood Irish Dance featuring music by Cameron Bell, Colin Bell, Gordon Bell, and Ian Ferrick of the group Bell and Ferrick.
This event will run in compliance with state COVID-19 guidelines regarding social distancing and other protocols. Attendees must bring their own snacks and drinks. There will not be any food or drink available for purchase.
To help promote social distancing, no walk-ups, bikes or chairs are permitted. Vehicles will be arranged at least 6 feet apart with adequate social distancing.
Port-o-johns and wash stations will be available. Masks will be required when using the port-o-johns. Attendees must stay in their vehicles (unless they need to use the port-o-johns).
Further details will be available to residents upon reserving tickets.
