Canada Day in Ottawa just got a little more Irish.

Rock stars Bono and The Edge from U2 will be performing a song on Parliament Hill on Canada Day during the early show, the Department of Canadian Heritage announced Friday, though it's not known what that song will be.

I wish I could.  It's 2700 miles away !! I'll be in Montreal in August which is only 1.5 hour driver to Ottawa.

This is kind of weird, knowing that the show in Cleveland is that day. It's obviously a political decision on Bono's part, but should be cool.

He likes our prime minister when I attended the meeting in my city Montreal with the One Campaign  with him and Bono and Bill Gates last year it was obvious how much they like each other. It is our 150th birthday too.

I actually regretted making the decision to not be in my home country on it's 150 birthday to visit U2 in Cleveland. And now this. Should be a selfie/sloganeering/patting our selves on the back live in between JT and Bono.

There's plenty you can do when you have a private plane.

I also think it will be BD, but could be One.

It is a short with flight in a private plane from Ottawa to Cleveland.  Cleveland has the lakefront airport only minutes from the stadium.

I think it will be One.

I am happy to be celebrating Canada Day with U2 in Cleveland.  Did Toronto last night.

Let's just hope they're not late getting in as they were in Pittsburgh (I believe they didn't arrive to the stadium until 530ish, which is late for them).

Happy they're doing this for Canada, but disappointed for Cleveland concert attendees who almost certainly won't get to see them enter the stadium/possibly meet the band.

When they did this in Vienna and London on July 2 2005 they admitted that the second gig was shiite.
