It's official. Bono, the Edge and the rest of U2 will play Spartan Stadium on June 30, 2010.
The band is planning to use a central stage, which would allow for the use of all the seats, plus the possible addition of floor seats. U2 is the first rock supergroup to play Spartan Stadium since the Rolling Stones did so in 1994.
The best news for MSU football fans in all this: Playing in late June should give the turf time to recover - or give MSU officials time enough to install new grass - before the first game of football season in late August.
