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.
