More U2 and Green Day: Billie Joe and Bono Plan to Reopen Superdome

We already know that U2 are collaborating with Green Day on a cover of Scottish punk band the Skids' "The Saints Are Coming." But now it seems both bands will actually be performing the track live during the official reopening of the Louisiana Superdome on September 25th during the New Orleans Saints' vs. Atlanta Falcons Monday Night Football matchup. The whole thing will be broadcast live, and Rhapsody will be streaming a live audio stream.

In other U2 news, there's a lovely little message on the band's official site narrating their comings and goings at Abbey Road studios, where they are recording new material with Rick Rubin. The man does indeed leave L.A. from time to time, and it seems Green Day will be joining the band in London for the recording of "The Saints Are Coming."
