NBC Bono & Edge interview w/Brian Williams

Email from atU2.com said they will be on the Nightly News with Brian Williams.
That's in about 15 minutes. (cdt)

Quote:
Bono & Edge will also be on NBC Nightly News on Tuesday. Anchorman Brian Williams visited the Foxwoods Theatre today to tape interviews with them and the cast.

The New York Times also has a lengthy and interesting interview with Bono and Edge about the production and its struggles.

It was so shoooooooort. :angry

I just saw that Julie Taymore is attending opening night? I wonder if she will sit with B and E? I bet she does, because they are classy people.

16 minute full version of the interview... lots of Edge

Seems Bono has lost his voice a bit. Hence why Edge gets to SPEAK This would have been done yesterday so too much post-Tony partying?

I was looking in another thread and there were some post-show pictures with everyone on stage, and there was a woman there with Bono, and I was all ".... is that Julie Taymor??" I figured it couldn't be, but I guess it was!

That was nice to see.

just watched the extended video. I was surprised to learn about how one of the producers died. I googled Tony Adams and was even more surprised that he died in Oct 2005. That's when U2 was on tour for the Vertigo tour. He died on Oct 22, 2005...I saw U2 that very night in Pittsburg and also 2 nights later in Michigan. Crazy to think that Edge had all of that going on in his mind when he was on stage.

ohmigosh, how traumatizing for all involved!

You got me curious and here's what wikipedia told me:

"While he originally signed on to become producer of the Spider-Man musical, he died during his time. He was going to the Edge's house, who co-wrote the score, for him to sign various contracts and he suffered a stroke at the Edge's apartment. Adams died at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York after a stroke at the age of 52"

So in the morning/noon Tony Adams had a stroke at Edge's NY apartment, then in the evening Edge flew to Pittsburgh for the concert? :O
