This Saturday (April 12), MySpace will air a special one-hour program on FX documenting Operation MySpace, the March 10 concert for over 7,000 U.S. troops based in Kuwait, which was hosted by comedian Carlos Mencia and featured performances from Filter, Disturbed, Pussycat Dolls, Jessica Simpson, and DJ Z-Trip. The special, MySpace’s first-ever entertainment TV show, which is set to air at 11 P.M. EST, will offer performance footage, as well as behind-the-scenes interviews with artists and troops at Camp Buehring.

As you may remember, Spin’s Peter Gaston traveled to Kuwait to video blog Operation MySpace’s proceedings. Check out his review of the performance, plus video of Filter frontman Richard Patrick jamming with troops on Stone Temple Pilots’ “Interstate Love Song.”
