"Maybe that is the step forward on this record, to be able to have the freedom to have humour sitting alongside songs that are deadly earnest, and the two actually balance out each other."

Edge Joins Stand Up To Cancer Telethon

@U2, September 01, 2010
By: Matt McGee / @mattmcgee

 

Edge is listed as one of the musical performers for next week's Stand Up To Cancer telethon. The one-hour event is scheduled for September 10th at 8:00 pm ET/PT and will be aired on all major U.S. TV networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) and many cable networks, too, in 195 countries.

We don't know if Edge's participation will actually be live; U2 have a day off on September 10 and are due to perform the following night in Zurich.

Edge has been a board member of the Angiogenesis Foundation, an organization dedicated to fighting cancer and other diseases, since 2007. In 2009, Edge revealed in an interview that his family had a "brush with cancer a couple of years ago." Though he didn't specifically say so, many have assumed he was referring to his daughter's illness that was discovered in late 2004.

Stand Up To Cancer says that one hundred percent of the donations at next week's fund raiser will go directly to cancer research.
