Live 8 Stars Nix Gigs



Due to the terror attack happened on London Thursday, R.E.M. and Queen reluctantly cancelled their performance for Live 8

Thursday London city was shocked with the bomb that wrecked number of buildings, caused huge destruction, and killed at least 37 people while injured 700 others. The blast is believed as an al-Qaeda faction, because of which the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police requested the public not to make "unnecessary trips," and London's entertainment scene ground to a halt, with concerts canceled and the West End theater district shut down.

The blast affects the whole London as many performers of several events cancelled their performance. Since larger outdoor concerts, including anticipated Friday and Saturday shows in Hyde Park, were rescheduled, R.E.M. and Queen also nixed their gig for the Live 8, which previously was scheduled for this week. As announced by the concert organizers, Queen show, originally slated for Friday, will now happen on July 15, while R.E.M.'s planned Saturday gig will be pushed to July 16.
