Excellent New Video Interview with Bono

There is a new video interview with Bono available to watch starting today on a Dutch website.

Check out this info from U2log:


Bono is furious about the G8 outcome, but blames the lack of a movement:

“People say, are you upset after the G8, you didn’t get this, this and this — of course I am. I am furious. But they blame the politicians. I blame us. We don’t have the movement yet.”

U2’s frontman analyses the results of the G8 meeting with British economist and activist Noreena Hertz in an extensive interview for VPRO’s current afairs show Tegenlicht (‘Backlight’).

Bono talks to Hertz about the results of the G8 summit in Gleneagles this summer and his continuing work as a lobbyist. He also reveals his plans for the new ‘Red-campaign’, which asks companies such as Apple and Nike to produce red coloured products, symbolising the AIDS emergency.

Watch the full interview, recorded backstage at U2’s show in Gothenburg this summer on VPRO Tegenlicht’s website (from September 23).

The interview is part of the VPRO Tegenlicht’s documentary ‘Noreena’s Agenda’, which will be broadcast on Dutch television on September 25. The full documentary can be viewed online from September 26 onwards, at www.vpro.nl/noreenasagenda

Here is the actual video link:

I know that we all like to talk about Bono's physical attributes, but when you watch an interview like this you begin to realize just how much more that is GOOD about Bono lies in his Heart and Soul!

THANK YOU, BONO (more than I can ever say)....

No problem - it's a GREAT interview on issues that are most important to that man's Heart and Soul.

If you really want an insight into Bono the person (and not the persona we see on stage), watch this interview.

No, it's just streaming

Hopefully, once it's on TV, someone will be able to record it and put up a file that can be saved.

Really interesting interview, particulary at the end when they talk about the Red campaign.

Thanks, everyone, for taking interest in what Bono takes interest in - the future of the world's poorest people.

And thanks for your support, hotpepper and Duchess.

It's nice to be recognized for all the info that I try to pass along.

What's more important, though, is how does he look?

hmpf the upload broke up 4 times now..

here's the direct url to the video: mms://streams.omroep.nl/tv/vpro/tegenlicht/bb.20050923.asf

if you're able to download streams (with CoCSoft StreamDown for example), you just have to put in that address and it downloads automatically..i'll keep trying to upload it though


thanks for letting us know jamila

it really is a good video, he answers a lot of questions that have been thrown out by left wing activists who are pissed at his "realistic" politics as he calls it.

and yes, he looks good. of course, smart = sexy....
