Subject: Live Aid 2

Written By: MDC on 7/18/2001 at 7:31 a.m.

I received the following information about Live Aid 2 from a friend in Europe today:

The star-studded line-up for a massive charity concert to help Aids charities is due to be revealed on Wednesday. The event, at Cardiff´s Millennium Stadium, is organised by former Ultravox frontman Midge Ure, who helped Bob Geldof stage the groundbreaking Live Aid concert in 1985. That event was watched by millions worldwide and raised $100m for those devastated by famine in Africa, as well as sparking a series of benefit gigs. Among the stars who will help launch the 20 October spectacular in Cardiff are girl band Atomic Kitten and Welsh singer Charlotte Church. Madonna, Robbie Williams, George Michael, S Club 7, the Bee Gees, the Backstreet Boys, Debbie Harry, and Barry Manilow have also been approached to play, but no one has so far been confirmed. BBC Wales is helping organise the event in conjunction with the Red Hot Aids charity. The concert will be recorded for broadcast on BBC One a week later.

Sounds pretty good. Of course, it could never live up to the original in 85!!!
