As of today, Live 8 will be held in AT LEAST 5 International cities, including, London,UK, Paris, France, Rome. Italy, Berlin, W. Germany, Philadelphia, USA..with more cities to be announced...and MORE acts/artists to be announced.

Here is the official cities and lineup as of this morning...again more to be announced.

From Billboard.com

"Circus Maximus in Rome, London's Hyde Park and the Eiffel Tower in Paris are among the venues that will host Live 8, a series of concerts being organized by Bob Geldof, the driving force behind the Band Aid and Live Aid campaigns for African famine relief."

"The July 2 concerts, which will be free, also will be held at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and the Museum of Art in Philadelphia, organizers said."

"Performers include Coldplay, Madonna, Paul McCartney, R.E.M. and U2 in London; Will Smith, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Stevie Wonder and P. Diddy in Philadelphia; Crosby, Stills and Nash, Lauren Hill and Brian Wilson in Berlin; Jamiroquai, Youssou N'Dour, Yannick Noah and Placebo in Paris; and Duran Duran in Rome."

The events are aimed at raising awareness of poverty in developing countries just days before G8 leaders meet in Britain.

"They said there were plans for concerts in other cities in G8 countries, but didn't give further details. Japan, Canada and Russia are the three other nations in the G8."

England gets such great artists! And the US? We get Jay-Z and P. Diddy. Kaiser Chiefs are good, though, but the line-up of Coldplay, Keane, U2, Muse, Velvet Revolver...I want to be in the UK!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

I love U2 but unlike Queen there's no bootlegs on the net available...:(

I have no collection and want a few good quality audio recordings but can't find any..:(



Your pulling our leg right? For U2 boots try www.wewillfollow.com for starters. And then try this romanian site http://www.atyclb.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=267

There's gonna be some questions broadcast on tv and printed on newspapers. Anyone who texts in the right answers gets entered into a "lottery" from which a bunch of winners are chosen and given a pair of tickets each.

You know what really sucks...there are a ton of USA born artists...Velvet Revolver, Madonna, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Brian Wilson, Mariah Carey...and they are all playing either London or Berlin...

..even the good USA artists are NOT playing IN the USA. 50 Cent, P. Diddy, Will Smith my ass....

You couldn't PAY me to go to the one here.

In 1985...Madonna, The Beach Boys, Crosby Stills & Nash DID play Philly, USA.


How come this time we get the s**t list?

Yeah and that's something else. It's all free. People get tickets via a lottery by texting.

Well not EVEYBODY in the world has text messagers.

I don't. So I couldn't go to Philly if I wanted to.

They should realize while most peaople have access to the internet...alot of people do NOT have access yet to text messaging...so I am screwed anyhow.
