The LIVE 8 concerts taking place around the world will be watched and listen to by more than 2 billion people.

In the UK, the BBC is the host broadcaster for LIVE 8 London with coverage across BBC ONE, TWO and THREE, with radio broadcasts on Radio's 1 and 2, the BBC World Service and across the BBC's regional stations.

Partner broadcasters in Europe and America will also be working to bring this huge international event to the world.

Online in the biggest interactive event in history, AOL will be broadcasting all the concerts live, delivering exclusive, interactive material. People around the world can learn more about global poverty, connect with a community of fans and make their voices heard at http://www.aolmusic.com, http://www.aol.co.uk, http://www.aol.de or http://www.aol.fr

Bob Geldof:
"This is not Live Aid 2.

These concerts are the start point for The Long Walk To Justice, the one way we can all make our voices heard in unison.

This is without doubt a moment in history where ordinary people can grasp the chance to achieve something truly monumental and demand from the 8 world leaders at G8 an end to poverty.

The G8 leaders have it within their power to alter history. They will only have the will to do so if tens of thousands of people show them that enough is enough.

By doubling aid, fully cancelling debt, and delivering trade justice for Africa, the G8 could change the future for millions of men, women and children."

I didn't see them when I scanned through the above post (maybe they were there..)

But anyway add Pink Floyd- Guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and keyboard player Richard Wright will be on stage with bassist Roger Waters for their first public performance since they played at London's Earls Court in 1981.

:clap: :clap: :clap:

If I was still in England, I'd make the trek down to London for this.

But for the sake of conversation didn't most of this debt just get erased within the last day or so?? Or are they just talking about doing that ?
