Group wants to turn U2 concert "red"
By Catherine E. Toth

A group of friends and dedicated U2 fans are teaming up to turn Aloha Stadium (RED) for the band's Dec. 9 concert.
(RED) is a brand created to raise awareness and money for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa. Gap, Motorola and Apple are participating in the effort, donating a portion of the sale of its (RED) items to the charity.
Organizers are encouraging concert-goers through blogs to wear anything red that night in support of the campaign created by U2 frontman Bono.
U2 will end its Vertigo tour on O'ahu. Pearl Jam and Rocko and the Devils will open the show, which starts at 6:30 p.m.
