According to a press release from the Special Olympics, U2 are among the celebrities who will be participating in the Special Olympics opening ceremony in Dublin on June 21. The press release does not indicate whether the band will perform or simply make an appearance at the ceremony.
Athough tickets to the opening ceremony are free, they will be hard to obtain. Tickets will first be distributed to participants and their families, coaches, and supporters before they’re made available to the general public. The ceremony will be aired live on RTE.
