Confirmed: U2 will play TCF Bank Stadium


The rumors appear to be true, judging by the ads showing up on Twin Cities Web sites this morning: U2 will rock TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota on June 27, marking the first time the Gophers' new home turf will put itself at the mercy of an outdoor rock concert. 

As of 6 a.m., neither Live Nation, the tour's promoter, nor U2's Web site have confirmed the dates.

Comparing the ads and dates posted at Live Nation, it looks like U2 will make their Minneapolis stop between gigs in Edmonton, Alberta, and East Lansing, Mich.
