Bono to be first guest on pop star show

Thu Oct 12, 5:38 PM ET

U2 frontman Bono has signed on as the first guest on musician/producer David A. Stewart's upcoming music-themed interview show for HBO.

Described as "musicians on musicians," the show will feature the Eurythmics member interviewing fellow artists about their craft. One of the show's producers, Jimmy Iovine, runs U2's Interscope Records label.

The pay cable network has ordered six half-hour episodes of the show to air early next year.

U2 and punk rock trio Green Day performed several songs at the official reopening of the Superdome in New Orleans Monday, including a cover of the Skids' "The Saints Are Coming," which was recorded to benefit musicians from the area ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

*LOL* Ah trust me babe, I'm coming across all this stuff purely by accident. Usually I'm never this "in the know" ;o) And yeah, it is awesome! I gotta find out more about it and when it's gonna be on.

This was filmed the other day, there was a report about it somewhere on @U2.com but it seems to have disappeared now. :(  All I remember is Bono & Edge were interviewed, and they spoke about songs including "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)" and "Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad". The guy who attended the filming said it was really cool and he didn't want to give away too many surprises!
