    I'm surprised this isn't already a hot topic... perhaps I'm the only one who cares that Floyd got back together for today to perform at Live 8! Not that they are the only act worth watching, there are plenty of GREAT bands performing from 8 countries around the world!!! However, Pink Floyd is definitely at the top of MY list!

    For those who don't know what Live 8 is about, here's a snippet from the Live 8 website:
    Just wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to attend any of the Live 8 shows, particularily the one in the UK, to see Paul McCartney and U2 perform Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or the Killers' performance of All These Things That I've Done. Did/Is anyone listening live online?

    I urge you all to visit the Live 8 website and urge you all to help Make Poverty History!

    I had nothing else to do so I've watched it all since the beginning.How some of these people got recording contracts is beyond me cause they can't sing a note.Bob Geldof singing I Don't Like Monday's was awful as was Dido and pete Doherty needs to find another job :speechless:
    My best bits were Keane,REM,Madonna was really good,UB40, Velvet Revolver were brill and ofcourse Robbie Williams was gorgeous as usual :nervous:

    I liked seeing Pink Floyd and The Who.


    The best coverage is on AOL.

    Did try and Sky+ it to watch it later, to record it all would take up 53% of the disk! :eek:

    If there was to be an award for the best act of the night it would have to go to Victoria Beckham for her ridiculous pouting pose everytime she realised the camera was on her,had me in stitches :cheeky:
