The U2 frontman Bono is being interviewed tonight on 60 Minutes. The title of the segment is “Bono and the Christian Right.” According to the CBS website, the activist rocker tells 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley that getting conservative Christians on his side was the best way to push the Bush administration to send more aid to Africa. Bradley profiles the Irish super group tonight (Sunday 20 November 7 p.m. ET/PT).
I will definitely be watching 60 Minutes tonight! I will post a follow-up entry about the interview. I will also be posting my review of the just-released Vertigo Tour DVD and be offering some comments on Bono’s work on the HIV/AIDs crisis in Africa.
