U2 to perform at the Obama Inaugural Concert, Sunday, 7-9pm EST (HBO)

It's going to be a good year indeed. A new U2 single, album, and tour are on its way.
Even better is that they'll be performing this Sunday in DC according to press release just now:
U2 join a stellar line up of artists at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington this Sunday for 'We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration'. Don't miss it. It's open to the public and aired on HBO.

Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, John Legend, Usher, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, will.i.am, and Stevie Wonder are among the acts performing while Jamie Foxx, Martin Luther King III, Queen Latifah and Denzel Washington are among those reading historical passages.


'We Are One:The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial' is the opening celebration for the 56th Presidential Inaugural, presented by HBO this Sunday, January 18 (7:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT).

This is my guess/wish, that they play "Pride" with re-worked lyrics (e.g. "early morning Jan 20th an inauguration in the DC sky....") along with "City of Blinding Lights" which Obama played a ton before his speeches during the campaign.

Talk amongst yourselves.
