LIVE 8 Concets this weekend

Have people heard about the LIVE 8 concerts this weekend?

If not, there are 9 concerts across the work taking place this weekend. The U.S. concert is in Phily at the Museum of Art steps.

The lineups are unreal. you probably wont find a better lineup are artists ever again. The London Lineup is 1000x better than the US one, I think.

U.S.:

Presenters:

Will Smith, Salma Hayek, Natalie Portman, Chris Tucker, Jennifer Connolly, Jimmy Smits, Kami

Artists:

Alicia Keys, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Def Leppard, Destiny's Child, Jay-Z, Josh Groban, Kaiser Chiefs, Keith Urban, Linkin Park, Maroon 5, P Diddy, Rob Thomas, Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Wonder, Toby Keith



London:

Artists:

African Children's Choir, Annie Lennox, Bob Geldof, Coldplay, Dido,
Elton John, Joss Stone, Keane, The Killers, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Ms. Dynamite, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Razorlight, REM, Robbie Williams, Scissor Sisters, Snoop Dogg, Snow Patrol, Stereophonics,
Sting, Travis, U2, UB40, Velvet Revolver



The concert is NOT Live Aid, that happened like 20 years ago... this is different.


I'm thinking about driving to phily today and camping out to see the concert. Over a million people are expected at the U.S. show!!!

If you cant make it to a show... here are TV and Radio details:

ABC will present a 2 hour highlight special on July 2nd at 8pm eastern / 7pm central.

VH1, MTV and MTVu will carry 8 hours live from Noon to 8pm eastern, 11am to 7pm central, 10am to 6pm mountain and 9am to 5pm pacific.

XM will broadcast each show on a different channel starting at 9am eastern. Here's the list - London (channel 41), Paris (channel 42), Berlin (channel 43), Rome (channel 44), Philadelphia (channel 45) and Barrie, Canada (channel 46). The London show will also air on channel 201 and there will be global coverage on channel 200.

CMT and VH1 Classic will air highlights on July 3rd.

"WXRT in Chicago will broadcast Live8 beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday. Can't say for sure but from their commercial it sounds like they'll be covering mostly the London show."
