Live 8 acts that should have been there...

Bloc Party
Athlete
Arcade Fire
Radiohead
Oasis
Pearl Jam

Pretty much all these have opened or are related to U2 in some form, I'm curious why they never went along?

On balance this will probably end up in B&C, but I don't want to tell the mods how to suck eggs.

I personally would've (as the crowd would have, I imagine) enjoyed the brief indulgence of Tim & Neil Finn.

(Typical of me I know, but who doesn't love a bit of Weather With You in a stadium )

Rolling Stones and Pearl Jam, these were the real missing ones. I mean, you have Pink Floyd back again, you wanna have bands like them, too

^Stilll can't get over how many times the Quo keep cropping up in Corrie these days.

Oasis should have definitely been there.

David Bowie

1stepcloser, noone rocks harder than Les Battersby, especially if he's got Cilla with him

Hilary Duff!

She would have fit perfectly between Black Eyed Peas and Destiny's Child /sarcasm

There were alot of bands I wish had performed. Too bad most of everything in the Philly concert was for the teenage girl MTV department.
