U2 at NFL kickoff?

on Boston sports radio they were just speculating who the mystery band to play NFL kickoff night on Thursday. Someone called up and suggested u2 might be playing. They were discussing the possibilities with the new song promotion and the break in their schedule. Obviously it's just speculation at this point, but an interesting thought.

Doubtful.

They're supposedly on Fallon that night, although both shows are on NBC so it's not impossible.

Likely someone Boston related... like Aerosmith or something like that

They could play The Blackout and add some lyrics about concussions or something.

As football fans gas up their grills and apply warrior-style face paint in anticipation of the 2017-2018 NFL season, music fans also have a reason to join the huddle.

As the culminating event of the NFL's "Random Acts of Kickoff" series,Billboardcan exclusively reveal that Grammy-winning R&B croonerMiguelis set to perform live at a musical pop-up event in Boston this Thursday (Sep. 7) in honor of the New England Patriots' fifth Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons back in February.

Sounds like a made-up name shoehorned to fit the new "lyric / rhyming name" meme we love so much.

See the train crossing the trellis, Miguelis

 
Or, more appropriately: Who the hell is, Miguelis?
