Bob Geldof is expected to confirm details Tuesday (May 31) of a major charity concert. The media will gather in London, England to hear details of the Live 8 concert.


Please do not email bobgeldof.info for any further information as we have no more details than currently out there in the general press. You will have to be patient and wait until Bob makes the official announcement, when all details will be added to the site.

A repost I got somewhere else:


Live 8 - The Official Announcement


Bob Geldof and 95.8 Capital FM announce the biggest gig in the world: Live 8.
After weeks of rumour and speculation, we can now confirm that twenty years on from Live Aid, some of the world's biggest stars are coming together to perform again with the aim of Making Poverty History and Capital will be broadcasting the whole thing.

Who's confirmed to play?



Mariah Carey, Coldplay, Dido, Keane, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Muse, Razorlignt, REM, Scissor Sisters, Snoop Dogg, Sting, Joss Stone, Stereophonics, Robbie Williams and U2.



More artists to be annouced soon.

When is it?
Saturday 2nd July 2005

Where is it?
London's Hyde Park

How can I get a ticket?
The concert will be free but tickets will be allocated through a text lottery. The text number will be announced on Capital at 8am on Monday 6th June.

Texts will cost text £1.50 plus your usual network text charge and there will be no limit to the amount of times you can text. The text line will remain open for 7 days, and 75,000 pairs of tickets will be randomly chosen by computer.

Capital and Live 8
For the last eight years Capital has put on the biggest one day summer concert in Britain, Party in the Park, but this year Bob called Capital to ask if he could borrow our Hyde Park stage to put on a massive event to support the Make Poverty History campaign.

On 2nd July, as the world’s biggest music stars gather in London, Capital will be there to bring it to you.

As with Live Aid twenty years ago, there will be similtaneous concerts in Berlin, Paris, Rome and Philadelphia.

Im a little confused here BBC News are reporting that the concert is on the 2nd July and the March in Edinburgh is on the 6th July. Yet the Make poverty history site is advertising the March on 2nd July the same day as the concert.


Don't know about you, but id hate to turn up for the March on the wrong day

I don't know where your from Ingo, but i hope you had another reason for booking your flight to London other than the concert, as i guess there will be millions of people sending these text messages to win tickets.  So those winners will be very lucky indeed. Im sure they said the event would be shown on screens far and wide though.

There was no other reason. we booked 2 weeks ago - when the first rumors appeared. I come from germany. i hope somehow we will get tickets if not, we will have a nice weekend in london and will the event see somewhere at a screen.

Hallo aus Berlin an Ingo!


I think trying to send the text message(s) is worth a try - I know texting to "normal" UK numbers works from Germany.


Although I'd love to see the show in Hyde Park, I've just started wondering if I should pack my family and go to Edinburgh! For the concert, I'll be at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. A-ha was my first concert ever, so I could be tempted to see them again... Where are you from exactly Ingo?
