Half-way through their four-night stand at Boston's TD Garden, U2 have dismissed rumours that they are to play a gig at an Irish pub in nearby Somerville.

U2 have two more gigs left to play at the TD Garden on Tuesday July 14 and Wednesday July 15, but have said they will not be playing the hits at Somerville bar and restaurant Burren Music. 

In a tweet, the band wrote: "Hope you're enjoying the Guinness @burrenmusic in Somerville, but don't fall for tall stories about a certain band from Dublin showing up..."
