New Ross Echo : Definately Blue tipped to follow U2 and Oasis

Condensed from The New Ross Echo :

THE HOTLY tipped (well, that’s according to their PR people) Definitely Blue, who hail from Westport in County Mayo - are set to follow in the footsteps of U2 and Oasis.

The band have won through to the semi-finals of the UK’s ’Young, Gifted & Green Unsigned 2002’.

This prestigious international competition, with over 1,500 worth of prizes, has had entries from as far away as Canada.

It takes place at the 860 capacity Palace Nightclub in Levenshulme, Manchester. This is the same venue that Oasis sent their first demo tape to, and coincidentally Tony McCarroll, the original drummer with Oasis is one of the main sponsors of the competition.

The band has been described as the "new U2" by Jackie Hayden of Hot Press magazine. Jackie, now residing in good auld Wexford, was responsible for getting U2 their first record deal, and after listening to Definitely Blue’s first demo he said : "It’s been years since I’ve seen a band of this calibre - the last time was in ’79, and it was four lads from Dublin. Their name was U2."

Manchester was the first UK City that U2 played, and the promoter who brought them over to the UK, John Commons is also one of the competition’s celebrity judges.
