The changes for the band meant they played on bigger festivals and stages, among them a gig on the FIFA World Championship in Germany 2006 in Cologne (DE) and gigs at OpenAir Weigendorf (DE) and Podium Hardenberg (NL). Also the band started to work on their theater show "In the name of U2", in which they perform songs of U2, and tell about whereabouts of the band from 1978 to the recent tours. The music is accompanied by a huge light show and videos presented on a big LED-screen. The show first was presented in January 2007 in Theater de Bussel in Oosterhout (NL).
This same month the band decided to break with guitarist Jan Marcel. Within a months time they had to find a replacement guitar player and get used to the new band setting, to be ready for the next show. They found the replacement in Sander Brandsen.
