In a daily status report about activity on the International Space Station, NASA reveals more about the upcoming space-based performance the astronauts will be doing during the U2 360 Tour. The following comes from the August 18, 2009, status update:

At ~8:30am, the six crewmembers downlinked a non-interactive message to be incorporated by the music band U2 in their current North American Tour. [This event was a follow-up to the event conducted with U2 back on 6/26/09 when the ISS crew downlinked greetings for U2's European tour venues. Per recent agreements between U2, the ISS crew and NASA, eaxch of the ISS crewmembers was requested to voice eight lines of U2's new song "Your Blue Room" that, along with a montage of space and ISS scenes that NASA is providing to U2 separately, will play during their U.S. tour dates.]

In today's BBC interview, Bono said the performance might be ready in time for the Cardiff show on Saturday. If not, this says it'll be included in the U.S. shows for sure.
