Opening Gala Anton Corbijn's 'The American'
During the Opening Gala of Anton Corbijn's movie 'The American' Crystal Dream plays U2's 'Running To Stand Still' and 'Window Of My Eyes' (Cuby and The Blizzards) a song that's on the movie's Soundtrack. A lot of U2-fanatics amongst the audience were very positive about Crystal Dream's performance.
Anton Corbijn is responsible for a lot of U2's artwork and photography. The albumcovers of The Joshua Tree, Rattle & Hum, Achtung Baby, POP as well as many videoclips were of his hands.
...While the intro tune plays, over 450 fans gather in front of the stage to see the headliner Crystal Dream play their U2 Tribute.
From that moment on the club goes crazy. The band rocks like hell and lead singer Marcel, is able to move the fans just by NOT imitating Bono and touches the audience by singing a little duet with one of the youngest U2 fans. The gig is dynamic and has a lot of feel. With the right guitar licks and a tight rhythm section, Crystal Dream can be called the best U2-coverband in Holland...
…Fridaynight, tropical, sweaty, swinging and thirsty. We've seen and heard awesome musical performances. But definitely the absolute highlight was Crystal Dream's U2 Tribute. An audio-visual experience with international potential. With over 4000 visitors a full house, with a great atmosphere and 'goosebumps moments…'.
