Louisiana Superdome: A Quick Takes item in Friday's Calendar said U2 and Green Day would perform together at the reopening of the Louisiana Superdome on Nov. 25. The reopening is on Sept. 25.
The Grammy-winning rock bands will perform "The Saints Are Coming," a 1978 song by the Skids, a Scottish punk band. They recorded the song together as part of their involvement in Music Rising, a charity campaign to replace musical instruments destroyed during Katrina.
