shows at the Rogers Centre to U2 to play two sold-out

One of the world's most popular bands will play in Toronto tonight in part one of two sell out shows at the Rogers Centre.
The unseasonably warm temperatures means that the roof of the dome will be open during the concert something that has only happened once before, when Bruce Springsteen put on a show in 2003.
More than 60,000 U2 fans are expected to attend Wednesday night and Thursday night's concerts.
The band acquired in town Sunday and attended the premier of fellow Irishman Colin Farrell's new movie "Ondine" which was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival Monday night.
U2 frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge were spotted outside the Masonic Temple on Tuesday night, where they filmed a secret taping for Elvis Costello's show "Spectacle."
The band will be playing songs from their new album, "No Line on the Horizon." It is their 12th studio album.
