Sorry dutch only :
Bob Geldof bevestigt nieuwe Live Aid
Sir Bob Geldof heeft deze week bevestigd bezig te zijn met een nieuw spectaculair muziekfestival, twintig jaar na het legendarische Live Aid. Het nieuwe festijn, dat op 2 juli plaatsvindt, is onderdeel van de campagne Make Poverty History. Geldof: 'Nog een keer op de bres. Wat twintig jaar geleden begon, wordt nu een politiek standpunt. Wat we de komende vijf weken gaan doen, is echt historisch en politiek belangrijk. We zoeken de grootste namen die we kunnen krijgen.'
De nieuwe Live Aid zal net als twintig jaar geleden bestaan uit twee megaconcerten: één in Washington en één in Londen. Artiesten die sowieso hun opwachting zullen maken, zijn U2, Paul McCartney, Coldplay en de Spice Girls, die hiermee hun comeback inluiden.
In 1985 zamelde Geldof met Live Aid 60 miljoen pond in voor de hongersnood in Ethiopië.

What do you think will Queen and PR play it ?? Would be fabelous woudln't it ??
They would not be invited anyway. They would be totally outclassed by U2 and Rodgers would forget the lyrics to his own and Queen songs. Plus he would complain too many people are smoking and ruining his angelic voice.
they would have to be queer not to invite Queen to the gig, cos thats probably one reason why eveyrone attendeds these huge gigs, like 46664, Will Smith said "this is the moment we have all been waiting for", everyone will be expecting Quen to "STEAL" the show for the second time in a row! lol!

Come off it Taylorgaga the 46664 concerts were mainly local artists with a few International acts thrown in. I didn't see Clapton, U2, Rolling Stones, Bowie, REM, Coldplay etc breaking a leg trying to play these 46664 gigs Considering U2 are massive again and playing better than they have for many years are you seriously suggesting Brian/Roger & Paul could outperform them ? NO WAY.
live aid is also happening in philadelphia again and im sure as usual you brits will have a better show and a better crowd then we do here.Grrrrr!.also,can someone post tix sales so far for hyde park Q-Pr andREM the following day.I wonder who is selling more?
Not to sound too hopeful....but if at the original Live Aid, Phil Collins could perform at BOTH London's Wembley AND Philadelphia's JFK in the USA on the SAME day via the Concord....which I am sure was exhausting and difficult, especially with Jet lag, time constraints to the absolute bare second literally,, etc.....
...then Queen+Paul Rodgers could easily play Lisbon and jump a plane or a chopper to play Live 8.
If Queen+Paul Rodgers REALLY wanted to play Live 8, and this is a MUCH higher profile Internationally televised once in a lifetime gig with international superstars, media, press, ...and both The Pope and Dahli Lama are invited...I think they should consider the benefits/boost to their career/music....
Also...in this part of Brian's quote, "we will be playing a nice football stadium", and as far as I know, will therefore not be able to participate in Live 8." I think he sounds terribly sarcastic in the "we will be playing a nice football stadium" part....then goes on to say so Quen won't be able to participate at Live 8. Sounds like a cheefky dig to me. Why....excuse me but isn't Live 8 supposed to be at Hyde Park...where Queen is performing at on July 8th. It just sounds like a sour grape saracstic dig to me....like he will enjoy playing at a nicer venue than what live 8 has to offer, but that's just my opinion.
