I thought they were joking when I first heard about this.
It’s a nice gesture for the mayor to invite them out to see the place after they play their Moncton show…after all it’s the closest they’ll ever get, they may as well drop by…if they want to. The media jumped on this before recieving confirmation that U2 would decide to show up on July 31st. I suppose it was good of them to let us know ahead of time about the possibility that it could happen. I guesss we’ll just have to wait and see if they’re right.
