U2 Prompt Soccer Game Switch

Irish rockers U2 have forced executives at Italian soccer club Juventus to move an upcoming game after the stadium was double-booked.
The band will make its comeback at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin, Italy on 6 August (10), after Bono's back injury forced the group to scrap a series of shows, including a headline slot at Britain's Glastonbury festival last month (Jun10).
U2 will spend the next two weeks at the venue rehearsing for their live return, but bosses at the football club have been left rearranging their calendar after realising the band's gig had been booked for the same day as Juventus' Europa League clash with Irish side Shamrock Rovers.
Apparently U2 have the stadium booked as part of their European tour so the venue is being moved to Modena
The soccer match has now been moved to a different venue in Modena, Italy, while the U2 gig will go ahead as planned at the Stadio Olimpico.
