Green Day and U2 to Perform at 9-25 Dome Reopening

...two of the world’s greatest rock bands for a special show before ESPN’s Monday Night Football game between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints at the Louisiana Superdome on Monday, September 25, 2006. U2 and Green Day will make an unprecedented appearance together on stage to officially re-open the Louisiana Superdome and perform for the people of New Orleans on behalf of Music Rising.

Not exactly the Neville Bros. or Dr. John but still all the more spotlight on the Saints as an identity of NOLA rebuilding.

U2 was solid at the Superbowl after 9/11...best halftime show I've ever seen. I think it's pretty excellent.

Neat pictures! Thanks! As excited as I am to put eyes on the actual seats I'll be sitting on, I'm tempted to sell my tickets to see if I can get the entire season paid for! Especially since I'm reasonably sure I'm going to need a day to prepare and get there, and a day to recuperate! Laissez les bon temps roulez ... ya'll.

push a couple of buttons and download the song 'The Saints Coming Home' that Green Day and U2 will be playing Monday.

http://rapidshare.de/files/33231342...Coming.mp3.html

lyrics-

I cried to my daddy on the telephone:
How long now
Until the clouds unroll and you come home"
the line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent
your descent


The saints are coming, the saints are coming
No matter how I try, I realise there's no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming


A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief
How long now
Until a weather change condemns belief
The stone says
This paternal guide once had his day
Once had his day


The saints are coming, the saints are coming
No matter how I try, I realize there's no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
