Guys, just to let you know that this programme is being shown on the 25th September not the 18th as said in the article.

The dome opens on the 25th and this is the date of the first home match... U2 and Green Day will perform the song in the pre match build up!!!!!

See article below:

U2 and Green Day Mark Opening of Louisiana Superdome With Special
Music Rising Performance During ESPN's Monday Night Football Pre-Game
Show Sponsored by Rhapsody

Thursday September 14, 8:00 am ET

Historic Musical Event Celebrates New Orleans and Music Rising
'Rebuilding the Gulf Coast Region Note by Note'

NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Music Rising, the campaign
launched to help bring the music back to the storm ravaged Gulf Coast
Region announced an extraordinary pairing of 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. The pre-game show and
special performance is sponsored by RealNetworks' Rhapsody digital
music service. Music Rising is administered by the Gibson Foundation.
In the days following Hurricane Katrina, the Louisiana Superdome
became a symbol of agony and distress. This NFL football game is the
first event to originate from the stadium since the Katrina
devastation. It will be highlighted by a special live performance by
U2 and Green Day that will be televised during ESPN's Monday Night
Countdown pre-game show between 7:00pm-8:30pm EDT (performance
8:20-8:30pm) . An opening video presentation showcasing the efforts of
Music Rising and the Superdome will air prior to the performance by
the two super-groups.

"My visits to New Orleans gave me a firsthand look at the devastation
which tragically destroyed the lives of thousands. The area's rich
and spirited culture must continue to be restored. Providing musical
instruments through Music Rising will not only help the professional
musicians but all the churches and schools in need through phase two
of the program. Music Rising is dedicated to helping regain a
foothold on their future but will also ensure that one of the Gulf
Coast's greatest assets, its music, will rise again," said The Edge.

The collaborative effort, of what is sure to be an electrifying
performance will also officially launch Music Rising Phase II. This
phase of the campaign will provide musical instruments to churches
and schools. In an extraordinary show of support U2 and Green Day
will debut "The Saints Are Coming," a song originally written and
performed in 1978 by The Skids, a seminal Scottish punk rock band.
The song expresses frustration but ends with a statement of resolve
and determination.

"One year later, people continue to be devastated by Katrina's
effects," says Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. "We hope that by
collaborating with U2, we'll remind the public that people of the
Gulf Coast are still suffering and still need help to rebuild their
lives. The Edge and Music Rising are providing support to schools,
churches and musicians who lost everything in the storm, including
their ability to make a living. We are honored to be asked and proud
to be part of that."

In addition to the live broadcast, Rhapsody will offer a live
streaming audio webcast of the entire Monday Night Football pre-game
show featuring U2 and Green Day via www.rhapsody. com. Shortly after
the event, fans will have the ability to buy a download from U2 and
Green Day's performance via Rhapsody. All net proceeds will go
directly to Music Rising. Both the exclusive Music Rising charity
track and select exclusive footage from the performance will be
available for a limited time via www.rhapsody. com/musicrising. A
simultaneous radio broadcast offered to radio stations by Westwood
One worldwide will encourage solidarity across the globe for the
people of New Orleans and the efforts to rebuild from destruction.
Westwood One is providing the broadcast on a non-exclusive and
uninterrupted basis.

Music Rising was formed in late 2005 by U2's The Edge, producer Bob
Ezrin and Gibson Guitar Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz. Since its
inception it has been recognized throughout the world and has aided
over 2,000 professional musicians. Many of the Gulf Region's
musicians who have depended on the local music industry for their
livelihood have been supported by Music Rising through the
replacement of lost or destroyed instruments and equipment. The
Monday Night Football pre-game event marks the introduction of the
initiative's second phase. Rebuilding the Gulf Coast Region "Note by
Note" has become a symbolic tagline of the Music Rising campaign. The
NFL also intends to involve Music Rising in various upcoming events
throughout the season. The initiative has been the recipient of the
2005 Gold Halo Award for Cause Marketing and was recently announced
as the recipient of the prestigious 2006 Billboard Humanitarian Award
to be honored in New York on November 9, 2006. Amongst the campaign's
many supporters, President Bill Clinton has provided his time to help
drive awareness for the continued need in the area through the
efforts of Music Rising.

Music Rising Phase II will be administered by The Gibson Foundation,
the philanthropic arm of Gibson Guitar along with The Mr. Holland's
Opus Foundation for schools and All Congregations Together for
churches. Instructions for making donations and FAQS concerning
applications for support can be found by visiting the Music Rising or
Gibson Foundation websites at www.musicrising. org and
www.gibsonfoundatio n.org. All donations are tax deductible with 100%
of support going directly to the Gulf Coast Region. A limited edition
Music Rising Epiphone guitar with the exclusive Music Rising artwork
featured on the t-shirt worn by The Edge at this year's GRAMMYs® will
also be available for purchase exclusively through Musician's Friend.
All proceeds from the guitar sales will also benefit the Music Rising
campaign. To order the Epiphone Music Rising guitar or inquire go to
www.musiciansfriend .com. On the day of the performance a special toll
free number will be set up to take donations.

About Music Rising

of the Gulf Region by replacing the musical instruments and equipment
that were lost during the hurricane disasters of 2005. Partners in
the special Louisiana Superdome event represent a dynamic and
comprehensive grouping of entertainment giants including ABC News
Now, ESPN, RealNetworks, Westwood One, The NFL, and Gibson Guitar.
