U2 to play Baltimore in 2011, maybe

From the Midnight Sun blog:

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, U2.com 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 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.
