Live 8: The Revenge

According to billboard.com, Bob Geldof is at it again:

Circus Maximus in Rome, London's Hyde Park and the Eiffel Tower in Paris are among the venues that will host 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.

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 [no Ivan Lendl? -jh] and Placebo in Paris; and Duran Duran in Rome.
A good cause, but Paris really got screwed on this one. But that's what happens when you reject a referendum on the constitution for Europe.
