U2 Heading For Sarajevo In The Fall

Lending a helping hand...

U2 will play a benefit concert in Sarajevo,

Bosnia-Herzegovina as previously reported in ATN. The show, which will take

place on Sept. 23, will follow U.S. and European concerts. Proceeds from the

concert will go to reconstruction of a war-damaged medical center in a western

Sarajevo suburb, according to Reuters.

"The appalling things that

happened to this city over the past few years are known to us but perhaps not

as well known around the world as they should be," U2 manager Paul McGuinness

told reporters Wednesday (March 12). The concert will take place in Sarajevo's

largest stadium, Kosevo, which can seat 40,000.
