U2 Invited to Stage Concert in Cork

U2 have been invited to perform as part of the program for 2005’s EU Capital of Culture, which will be Cork, Ireland. The Irish Independent reports that program officials, headed by director John Kennedy (who has served as U2’s production and tour manager in the past), hope that U2 will agree to put on a concert at the Pairc Ui Chaoimh. U2 last performed in Cork in August 1993 during the Zooropa tour.
