If it is ⛅, Beautiful Day, rainy, Rain by the Beatles, snowing, white as snow and if it feels like autumn, October.

It is not really a gig in Ottawa, it is only one song and only Bono and the Edge.

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.

I'm guessing Bono and Edge will hog the private jet (since they're on a tighter schedule), and Adam and Larry might have to fly commercial into Cleveland *shudder*.

I hope for the good people at Cleveland that Adam might stop and sign. Who knows?

It is cool that they're doing this (as an American, I'm a pretty big fan of Canada), but I just hope it doesn't affect their performance in Cleveland (especially since I'll be at the show ;)).

They aren't going to play a song but just do a re-enactment of the assination of Thomas Darcy McGee.

First time they'll have played 2 countries in one day?

July 2 2005 from memory.

Same! Lots of my ancestors came from Canada (and before that, Europe) so I've got a bit of a connection to the country and a fondness...but I'd still rather not have this impact the performance in Cleveland.

Worth mentioning, though, that they played Glastonbury back in 2011 and flew early the next day to America to play a concert here in Michigan and that MI concert was outstanding. So, I don't expect this to hurt their Cleveland show.

The flight from Newark to Ottawa and Ottawa to Cleveland are just over an hour each.  They are doing one song, no worse than doing the sound check the day of the concert.  There is an airport right next to First Energy Stadium in Cleveland.  They will be in Cleveland in time for the sound check. I can't see it having an effect on the Cleveland concert.  I hope not I going to be there!!!

Usually around 3, although I don't think they did a real soundcheck in Pittsburgh. I mean, their crew did (and we could hear it) but the band members themselves weren't there until 5pm.

I think they'll do a Leonord Cohen cover.

So do you think there will be no autographs this time around in Cleveland?  I've never tried to get one but was thinking of giving it a go this time.

This is happening the same day as a concert? Maybe they'll just record a video from Cleveland?

Some Nickelback fans have created a change.org petition:
