This time, the July 2nd concerts will be free and not intended to act as a fund raiser. The idea is to put pressure on the leaders of the G8 to help reduce global poverty.
Performers said to appear include Coldplay, Sting, Paul McCartney, Madonna, Duran Duran, and Robbie Williams. The Spice Girls were supposed to reunite for the show but Geldof asked that they didn’t, claiming their music was not in keeping with the political theme of the concert. Their music is, of course, completely different from that radical leftist music of Duran Duran and Robbie Williams.
Come on, Sir Bob. Let them
play sing perform. Don’t deny me my Sporty Spice.
