"Live 8" for Ethiopia

Generous and kindhearted Bob Geldof is planning his another star-studded, humanitarian event for Ethiopian famine relief dubbed "Live 8"


"Live 8" for Ethiopian famine relief, that's maybe what Bob Geldof trying to say to his fellow musicians in order to tickle them to get involved in the project aimed to raise money for the needing help Ethiopian. And that works for Sting, who admits to have been told by Geldof about "Live 8" and positively responses, saying he'll take part in the event.

The name "Live 8" is chosen as the indication to the G-8 summit, a meeting of the world's leading powers, set to start days later in Scotland. Commenting about his project, Geldof says "What started 20 years ago is coming to a political point in a few weeks. There's more than a chance that the boys and girls with guitars will finally get to turn the world on its axis."

Live 8 is set for Saturday, July 2, on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and it will coincide with a second show in London. Details, including the lineup and other possible venues, have not yet been revealed.
