Id love to go, but cash must be spent on things closer to my heart right now!

I'll watch it on TV and buy the DVD when that's released.

I hope U2 do more than just 'Sgt Peppers' and 'One' which is being reported at the moment...

Nick Mason said a while ago Pink Floyd would re-unite for something like a Live Aid style concert...something meaningful or whatever he said...Anyone else hoping like hell?!

[q]Five New Live Aid Shows Announced

15 minutes ago

LONDON - Circus Maximus in Rome, London's Hyde Park and the Eiffel Tower in Paris are among the venues for 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 in Philadelphia, organizers said Tuesday.

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. Organizers didn't immediately announce which artists would perform at the concerts or where the concert in Philadelphia would take place.

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.[/q]

U2 definitely confirmed for Hyde Park.

Not sure if Bono did speak or has spoken at the conference. It's still going on but I can't get the interactive feed on Sky News to work which is showing it. I got most of it but not Bono. When Bob did get round to speaking to him, after the other host country organisers, the line to Bono had been lost

I've got the bulk of the conference. Mainly from News 24, then ITN News, and then on Sky News
