The stage as set up for a concert for the band U2 on June 26, 2011 at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich. The concert was part of the band's U2 360 tour, which brings its massive stage to St. Louis' Busch Stadium this weekend.
Record setting weekend expected at Busch Stadium Sunday
Busch Stadium could set an attendance record this weekend, but the crowd won't be there for a St. Louis Cardinals game. A stadium-record 52,000 people are expected for the U2 concert scheduled for Sunday night. That will include fans with seats on the field.
Seventy-three dogs rescued from a breeder in southwest Missouri today are now in the care of the Humane Society of Missouri in St. Louis. The dogs are the first seized under Missouri's new Canine Cruelty Prevention Act.
Attorney General Chris Koster filed suit against the kennel, owned by Linda Brisco, in June. He calls it a good first step toward changing Missouri's reputation as the "puppy mill capital" of the country.
Koster says the new law, a compromise on the voter initiative known as Proposition B, gives his office more tools to help the dogs.
