Sun staff predicts the Ravens-Jets game

U2 to play Baltimore in 2011, maybe

U2 could play Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium next year, the band accidentally revealed on its website.

In a post announcing plans to play the Glastonbury festival in 2011, also inadvertently revealed a possible date with Charm City June 22. 

Representatives for M&T Bank Stadium and tour promoters Live Nation have not returned calls for comment. 

It's not the first time the band has teased Baltimore with a possible performance.

Last year, Ravens president Dick Cass told Midnight Sun the stadium almost booked the band for a date, but it conflicted with the game schedule. 

But if the 2011 date works, it would be the first major league non-sports event at the stadium in recent years, and the biggest headliner in the area since Bruce Springsteen played M&T Stadium 1st Mariner last year.

Baltimore radio stations reported the 2011 rumor earlier this week.  But it wasn't any more than wishful thinking until the post went up Oct. 2.
