I would assume at least Edge would be there as well? I can't imagine he's going to accompany himself on guitar or anything. Unless he's performing with another artist.

Yeah, that's what I thought was a little odd - you'd think they'd say U2, which makes me think it won't be the whole band. But who knows. We'll find out soon enough!

Edge will tweet from the Golden Globes "wait, i'll be there too!"

Well, Bono and Edge did write and record a new song for Haiti, so I'm assuming it will be that one. George Clooney said on the Red Carpet of the Golden Globes that all the songs will be available on Itunes the next day.

Do we really know that they wrote a new song for Haiti?

The little bit of text that I saw is that they recorded a song, and that "Bono finished his parts"... This could be a cover, collaboration, etc...

Unless you've heard more?

I was going to say the same thing. We have no idea whether or not they wrote anything original. Yes, it's very likely that they recorded something in response to the Haiti situation but I would also suspect that it's very likely this will not be an original U2 song but, like you said, a collaboration or cover.

"Last night we wrote a song ... Bono got a call from a producer, Swizz. He and Jay-Z wanted to do something for Haiti. So, Bono came up with the phrase on the phone, and last night we were here, we wrote a song -- finished, recorded, and send it back to them. So, that might be the next thing you hear from us!"

click on "Listen Back" and skip to around 103: in the interview with The Edge right after he talks about Songs Of Ascent. (Jan 16th)
(I just now listened to double check and the quote is correct)

Hmmm, a Jay-Z/Bono collaboration? That could be...interesting. But most likely it will be weird and bad.

Like BVS said, it could be the whole band.

Alot of people just use "Bono" as a word for U2 these days!

I have alot of friends(early 20s range) who like BD and COBL and think U2 are a great and legendary band, but do not know much more.

They certainly think of U2 as Bono and those 3 other guys.

The inaugural concert a year ago started out as just Bono being touted for the event as well, and we know how that ended up.

If I had to bet though, I would say 25% chance all of U2 shows up, and 75% chance of Bono, Edge, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys do the Haiti song in a collaboration. I can tolerate Jay Z, and Alicia Keys is very talented, so ok by me.

Bono will headline with Justin Timberlake:

Sunday night at the 2010 Annual Golden Globes awards show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, actor and activist George Clooney told reporters performers Bono (of band U2 and humanitarian efforts fame) and Justin Timberlake will headline Friday night’s benefit concert for earthquake relief for Haiti. According to the Associated Press out of Beverly Hills, California, Clooney also noted that the benefit would feature stars such as Sting, Alicia Keys, and Christina Aguilera. George Clooney told the Associated Press he is expecting about forty stars to appear at the benefit on January 22nd, to show their support. Clooney said the real aim of the benefit is “to show the people of Haiti that the whole world is paying attention.” Friday night’s benefit is being co-hosted by George Clooney and Wyclef Jean, a Hatian-born singer (who started out with Lauryn Hill and the Fugees before going solo); the Haitian earthquake benefit will be shown on more than a dozen broadcast and cable networks.

Why do they need to add an explanation of who Bono is, and not for Justin timberlake?
