but if this is anything like LIVE AID, it's supose to be just 1 BIG BROADCAST, doesn't it?


BTW: Latest info.. just found out that 50 CENT had to back down of the Philly show:
"50 Cent, citing a scheduling conflict in shooting his first movie, has had to back out of performing in Philadelphia, PA. In his place, both Destiny’s Child and Linkin Park have been added on to the Philadelphia bill for July 2."

It's depressing to see the Toronto (Barrie) list when you consider the Canadian acts that were omitted in favour of the rest (or if you look at a great deal of the other venues). Not a terrible lineup, but at the same time it's not very representative of the talent and creativity up here.

Whatevs. All for a good cause in some roundabout way.

Our Lady Peace they're great.

Simple Minds are a good inclusion as well. I thank any country that is fortunate enough to be in the G8 should be thankful enough that they have a concert (letalone the socio-economic reasons that make you in the EU to begin with).

It's going to be a great day of entertainment .

Nice. You beat me to it.



It's honourable that some of these artists are willing to take the time to use their celebrity for this "awareness" concert, but not all of them can be absolved from criticism. Especially one performer (let's call her Ms. Prion) who may or may not be simulcasting a "live" performance to the Barrie concert from one of her many high-paid Las Vegas shows. Her physical presence probably would have been unbearable anyway.

Of course the shows will be entertaining, but there's an obvious disparity between the Barrie concert and many others. It's a privilege to have a one-time event like this in one's country for sure. That doesn't change the fact that many of the artists are outside of the appeal of the target observer (those that would actually care to activate their awareness). Keeping this in mind, it's not ungrateful or callous to suggest that the performers could be better selected... both musically and demographically.

Unless I've severely underestimated the political motivation of BTO and Tom Cochrane fans.

True, but have you seen the US lineup? Seriously, have you seen it? Needless to say, I wont be buying tickets for that....

I'm tempted to start a "The US Got Screwed" thread.



The lineup for Philly is pretty dismal. London got the best of the lot, just like the last time. Oh well.

I'm going to steal A-Ha from Germany.

Hasselhoff could substitute on short notice. That is, if he can find some time in his overwhelming schedule.

IF.
