"BLACK CELEBRATION

BONO, BOB DYLAN and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN are amongst the stellar cast set to perform at a tribute concert for the late JOHNNY CASH in NASHVILLE next month.

The trio are in talks with organizers of the event and look likely to join country greats Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Steve Earle at the Ryman Auditorium on November 10. Sheryl Crow– who sang at Cash’s funeral in September –will also appear.

Tickets to the event will be free, the Cash family has announced. Quite how they will be distributed is still to be decided, reports the BBC.

Bob Dylan worked with Cash on his ‘Nashville Skyline’ album – most notably duetting on ‘Girl From The North Country’. Bono and U2 brought Cash in to work with them on ‘Zooropa’ in 1993. They recorded ‘The Wanderer’ with the much-missed musical titan.

Meanwhile, a new biography of Cash – ‘Johnny Cash - He Walked the Line’ – by Garth Campbell will be published in November. "This is a warm and heartfelt tribute to a man who changed the face of music. It just happened to be in preparation when he died," said publisher John Blake.

"In talks" doesn't mean "definitely booked" so don't get your airline tickets just yet.

I saw an article about it in the Sunday paper but it did not mention Bono.

Dylan is scheduled to play a European date that night so I'd wait and see if he actually can be there. Dylan's comments on Johnny Cash in Rolling Stone were very moving - I would guess he would be there if there's any way he can practically do it.

But Bruce is done with his tour, I would figure he would be there. Even if Dylan can't make it, Bruce and Bono teaming up on "I Walk The Line," "Ring of Fire" and a few other Cash classics would definitely kick some major arse.

I posted an update about this in the news section. Thus far the three Bs are still "in talks" but a lottery system for tickets has been announced. The deadline to submit your entry is October 26 so if anyone is at all interested in going, whether or not Bono is going to be there, you should send off your postcard soon.

I think that next year on tour at some point in the show, a picture of Johnny Cash's face will fill the screens, and Bono and Edge will do a shortened version of "The Wanderer" with just a voice and a guitar. Kind of like how they do "Wake up dead man" live.
