'And now to fill the Superdome with the healing power of Music Rising, please welcome two of the world's greatest rock'n'roll bands...'
A blinding ten minute set last night as U2 and Green Day performed for Music Rising to mark the reopening of the Louisiana Superdome.
It was Edge opening 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' for Green Day, segued (via a snatch of House of the Rising Sun ) into the rest of U2 arriving onstage for 'The Saints are Coming' and finished up with Beautiful Day.
An after the flood all the colours came out!
