Live Aid II?

This news has been on the radio all day today here in the UK... Live Aid II, 20 years on, in Hyde Park, London. There's a lot of speculation around it, but a date has been fixed of July 2nd. There are also reports that this Live Aid will be free, with tickets being given away through a form of lottery. It's all in support of the Make Poverty History / ONE campaign. It may be called "Live 8" because it coincides with the G8 summit in Scotland.

Just heard that U2 will almost definitely be involved, despite them having a gig in Vienna that night.

Any thoughts? :)

Yeah it seems a goer.

I guess U2 could do a couple of songs during the day, but they certianly couldn't headline the gig obviously. I guess one half of queen will headline.

Wooo! I already saw that one half of Queen. They were amazing. Best gig I've ever been to. Sorry, its irrelevant, but I want to tell people.

If the tickets are free, how does the concert benefit the Make Poverty History/ONE campaign?
