Live 8

#1
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:
On July 6th, we finally have the opportunity to stop that shameful statistic.

8 world leaders, gathered in Scotland for the G8 summit, will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop the debt and make the trade laws fair. If these 8 men agree, then we will become the generation that made poverty history.

But they'll only do it if enough people tell them to.

That's why we're staging LIVE 8. 10 concerts, 100 artists, a million spectators, 2 billion viewers, and 1 message... To get those 8 men, in that 1 room, to stop 30,000 children dying every single day of extreme poverty.
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:

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:
