When they weren't showing it live, Sky News showed the following newsflash...

"Bob Geldof says Spice Girls would be welcome in London" should they decide to reform!

Big Grin I Love Sir Bob Geldof

Oh my word!!!! 2 hours ago my life now seems alot more worthwhile! Watched the whole press conference on the news channels for 'Live 8'. Absolutely estatic!! Can't believe all these amazing people are going to be on stage at the same time. I am now praying I get the chance to go.

U2, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Elton John, Coldplay, The Killers, Scissor Sisters, Paul McCartney, Keane to name but a few. BLOODY HELL. How exciting is this!

The plan to get tickets is they are going to release a multiple choice question on June 6th to try and win tickets.It will be broadcasted on all national radio channels, television and newspapers. It will through texts at a steep £1.50 each and you can answer it as many times as you want. They then text you back later on saying if you have won and direct you to the website to confirm your winnings. You would get a pair of tickets. I'm gonna be using every phone I can get my hands on! Very slim chance to get them but worth it. The money will be donated to the charity.

If I don't get tickets, I will travel up to Edinburgh to join the demonstrations so I am still contributing.

WOW can't believe it!! So friggin' amazing. What Bob Geldof, Midge Ure, Richard Curtis and co are fighting for means alot for me and one day hope to go to Africa and help in some way.

The conference was hilarious F-words left right and centre from wee Bob. Taking the p*ss out of Bono as they were trying to get him on the phone but the link was lost. On the screens beside the table Bonos face kept appearing when meant to be talking to some guy in America. Lol "oh look Bono has become the Mayor".

Did anyone else catch it? It is still on BBCi on loop. I like how Elton John was just stuck on the end.

P.s Sorry if this is in the wrong place, not sure where it fits.

I can see how U2 can get to Vienna in time as opening act but how will The Killers manage it?! And how are the Kaiser Chiefs planning on getting to between Philadelphia and Vienna?!

It would be much easier if the Kaisers played in Berlin. Do you think they've even realised they've double booked themselves?

I'm so confused! every website I go to lists a different "official" lineup! U2 seem like the only ones on every list!
