"Some people expect U2 to come on like a political band. . . . Other people see us as prophets. Some see us as pop stars. . . . And we're not any of those things. We're probably all of them. I don't know what we are."

By: Matt McGee / @mattmcgee

 

Bono will be on the other side of the questions next week when he interviews his "hero," New York Times' columnist Nicholas Kristof. It'll happen on November 14th at the "Hero Summit" in Washington, DC. The event is being put on by Newsweek/The Daily Beast.

Here's how the interview is described on the event agenda:

A CONVERSATION WITH BONO AND NICHOLAS KRISTOF

Asked what he would do if he wasn't a musician, and Bono doesn't hesitate: "a journalist." The singer and activist interviews his hero, Nicholas Kristof.

• Nicholas Kristof, Columnist, The New York Times

Interviewed by: Bono, Lead Singer, U2; Co-Founder, ONE and (RED)

It's an invitation-only event, but will apparently be live-streamed on TheDailyBeast.com.
