Swedish newspaper ‘Aftonbladet’ has a story on Swedish rockstar Peter Stormare and his band Blonde from Fargo who ‘would have’ opened for U2 in Sweden had they toured this summer. Apparently Peter and Bono are ‘good friends’ and had talked about the possibility. ‘It was a dream for both U2 and us,’ said Peter. The article mentions the two of them met during the Million Dollar Hotel recording.

… at least we THINK that’s what this Swedish article says. Our Swedish editor will have to confirm when he wakes.
