MYX: U2 24

The Music Channel MYX has already gone way beyond MTV Asia. Maybe because the cable operator had moved the latter channel to a much higher notch to increase the popularity of MYX. Anyway, MYX had influenced the growth of OPM today because of its constant playing of videos of local artists. With some addition of foreign artists, it tried to segregate the locals to give more airplay than the international ones.

This March, I catched the promotion of one of their specials that are going to happen. Twenty four full hours of U2? Are you kidding? Of course not. I saw it with my own two eyes. 24 full hours of documentaries, concert, videos and music of U2. This event is inline with the release of their new album "No Line On The Horizon". MYX has come up with a lineup of program that would surely enjoy and satisfy U2 fans out there. It will happen on March 7 2009 from 12am til 12mn Philippine time.

12:00AM to 4:00AM: U2 EVOLUTION
4:00AM to 6:00AM: U2 ZOO TV LIVE FROM SYDNEY

Personally, I would like to watch the MYX versions of U2 videos and the U2 Evolution. The MYX Versions will showcase U2 videos being interpreted by different directors and U2 hits being covered by various artists. While the U2 Evolution will show the band's videography from 1980 to 2009. I like U2 for their exemplary music they shared for almost 3 decades with us. They have matured over the years and influenced several generation of new artists.

For all you U2 fans out there locally, don't miss this once in a lifetime event. If you're not in the Philippines, you may not be able to watch this without calling your local cable operator. Read my review on this after the said event.
