There's a rumor going around on Twitter that U2 will be playing an opening song at the game tonight. I heard it from the Province newspaper twitter feed. They're a pretty trashy newspaper, so I don't know whether to believe it or not.

I don't know how they'd do it - whether they'd pick up a satellite feed from Edmonton, or if the boys would fly back and forth (it would be insane, but technically somewhat do-able), but still. That's pretty exciting!


Edit - apparently the Team 1040, who are actually reputable, mentioned something about this about an hour or two ago. U2 were seen in Vancouver with some gear, so maybe they pre-taped something earlier this week.

If I wasn't already jacked up for this game, this rumor DEFINITELY has me even more excited!

Just saw a tweet from a blue cracker who is in Edmonton, and the band is soundchecking now. Looks like if there's anything U2 related at the game, it will either be a feed from Edmonton, or something they pre-taped earlier this week.

Live in the arena would have been awesome, but I knew it was too good to be true.

WOO!

Didn't think I'd be able to get home in time, but I did. Phew! Puck drop is in 10 mins. There's already been one live performance so far...

I'm guessing it wasn't U2?

Nope. A local guy called Kyprios.

Just the usual album version of Streets for the intro.

Wow, this game has gotten off to a great start!

Maybe there will be something in one of the intermissions. That's the only time I can see anything from them happening.

Awww. I don't suppose you can duck out, can you?

Seriously, though. The intro and anthems are AMAZING!

We're in the Stanley Cup Final. WOW. Just - wow. This is unbelievably awesome!

I have 90 mins till lunch. I could possibly disappear for the 3rd period.

The game is so intense. Did Daniel deserve to get a FOUR minute penalty for that? Hard to tell from the radio. Haha!

Well, both intermissions are now done, and there was nothing from U2 in either of them. Guess it was just all just a big rumor. Too bad!
