Bono in Get Up, Stand Up on PBS Wednesday

FYI, Bono is part of the PBS Get Up, Stand Up special hosted by Chuck D. that premieres on YOUR local PBS station this Wednesday, Sept. 28. Here is the link to the page, I don't know if the other hotlinks have any Mr. B action, because I have dial up and don't have the time/patience to check now. They do have a piccie of him, and he is in very good company. I saw a promo for it last night, and quickly, they showed a clip of him at Live Aid and a shot from a current day interview.

Thanks for the tipster. My guess is that one could see a LOT of Bono in this depending on when it was recorded.

I liked the show but there wasn't much in terms of Bono footage

and when they did do a piece on him at the end, he ended up coming off kind of bad in my opinion.

Do you remember at what point of the show did they do the piece on him? I don't have enough space on my videotape to record this whole thing

it was at the end. I don't know, I just wish they would have focused on U2's music more, and that if they wanted to talk about DATA they would've shown more than photo ops with Putin.

Does anyone know when these interviews were conducted? Bono looks like he's in his Fat Elvis stage, so I'm guessing this was sometime in 2003.

bono defended himself well. if you were listening to the fat guy at the end he also defended bono and bob saying that they were the ones that were getting things done meeting with doggy polititions and not carring if they look bad in a photo op. but cared if things were getting done. Bono is probably one of the most effective activists on that show and i think that is the point they were trying to get across. they could have made that clearer i guess, but thats what i got out of it

Ditto. Besides, it also made an interesting point that sometimes no matter what you do, people will criticize you. Sometimes your political actions will come off wrong to some people. That happens. Best thing to do is just go on ahead.

I thought the documentary was quite interesting, too-I have much respect for the artists that were shown in the thing. May the ability to speak your mind and bring attention to various issues continue to be of importance .

And some of the song clips...classic stuff. Great messages in there.

And yes, thanks for the caps, by the way .
