*U2* confirmed to play at inauguration

So you know how before Bono was slated to perform at the Inaugural Celebration?

'We Are One'
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).

More news as we get it.

Of course they'll play One (maybe even with Mary J Blige?)... but I wonder if they'll debut the single, since it's supposed to get radio airplay on the 19th anyway. 

Lawd, I wonder if it'll be streaming anywhere.
