U2 Concert Expected to Draw Record Crowd

Baltimore Sun columnist Ken Murray says he expects close to 80,000 people to be in attendance for Wednesday’s U2 concert at M&T Bank Stadium.

The record, set in 1999 during HFStival, stands at 75,000.

Murray’s article also looks at the economic benefits of having U2 come to downtown Baltimore.

Another article in the Sun, this one written by Chris Kaltenbach, looks at the concert from a fan’s perspective.

The hope is that the U2 concert will put Baltimore on the map as a town that can host large tours. Concerts like this one on Wednesday are great for Baltimore because they produce revenue for the businesses downtown and prove that the people of Baltimore are capable of supporting large events.
