    15 minutes is hardly time for one good guitar solo.

    This whole thing is looking crappier by the second.

    First no money actually going to Afrika.. now things like this..

    There isnt much that can be said about the LiveAid shows though, they always seemed badly planned to me.

    well if they did their early catalogue they could prolly knock out 2 or 3 tunes. Careful with that axe Eugene and Arnold Layne would just about cover it.
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Upset is not the word. Enraged is not the word. Furious is pretty close...

    Either way, i want blood for this. In some ways, i'm glad i didn't win tickets. Pink Floyd and paul mccartney are the sole reasons i wanted to be at live 8. If i had received this news while at the gig (or worse, not recieved it at all), i would've broke down into tears.

    That's absolutely horrendous. Whoever decided upon that should be shot several times. In the knees.

    How long are some of the other sets, for reference?

    Couldn't agree more. And while the set list isn't that bad (Breathe/Money/Wish you were here/Comfortably Numb), i would kill several times to see them play an "Any colour you like/Brain Damage/Eclipse" outro...

    Apparently every artist only gets 15 minutes, although it is likely that some acts will overrun. I agree with ah dut and Cygnus X-1: fewer artists and longer performances.

    Does anyone think the way 'Fern Cotton' has been interviewing other bands while one is on stange is a tad disrespectful? I mean, the only one i can recall was when she interviewed Razorlight when REM were playing...

    In case your wondering

    Geldof also revealed that Pink Floyd, reunited with founder member Roger Waters for the first time in more than 20 years, will play three songs: Breathe, Comfortably Numb and Wish You Were Here.
    Great set but how will they do full versions in 15 minutes? I guess it will be lose.

    Also I cant believe I missed this.

    SIR Paul McCartney and the Irish rock group U2, dressed in Sgt Pepper costumes, are due to open next weekend’s Live 8 concerts singing “It was 20 years ago today” — a reference to the Live Aid concert of 1985.
    Does anyone know if theres anywhere to see anything that was missed. I heard something about them being streamed on the internet

    The opening was good Gawain, I do believe there is audio / video on the internet already too of it.

    I am just so glad Pink Floyd are apparently going to play Wish you were here - my favvvvvvvvvvvv!

    Still waiting for them to begin though.

    Agreed, every song is a winner. I don't think the album really gets the praise it deserves as well, everyone always remembers and knows Dark side of the moon, but Wish you were here? It is often forgotten, and it is superb.

    Darkside is played out and everysong is not of the caliber of those on Wish you were here. As you say every song can stand by itself but together its a masterpiece.

    What a joke!! Currently listening to Robbie Williams?!?!?!?

    What can I say about that?????????? There is no superlative to portray quite how awful they are.

    Been looking forward to Floyd just to find this out

    There is nothing I can think of to say...............15 minutes. Who decided that then? Please tell me it wasn't Geldof

    You want to see how close we all are under the skin get a copy of Paul Mc Cartney Live in Red Square. Seeing him sing Back in the USSR there is unbeliveable as is seeing all those Ruskies singaing along and dancing to all his songs. Truly remarkable. MUsic is a great uniter .



    Paul McCartney "Live in Red Square" DVD, new Paul McCartney DVD released on June 14, 2005 (on A&E Home Video).

    The Beatles Anthology may be the motherlode for fans of the Fabs, but among other Beatle-related video offerings, only The Concert for George matches Paul McCartney - "Live in Red Square" DVD for sheer emotional and musical impact. It's no coincidence that the latter two chronicle not just concerts but significant events--a memorial for Harrison (he had died a year earlier), and Sir Paul McCartney's first visit to the former Soviet Union.

    For the Russian audience, Paul McCartney's appearance in Moscow is little short of a miracle. The Beatles were banned for decades by the Soviet government, which regarded their music as the epitome of Western decadence and propaganda, and the fans' only access to the group was through the occasional photo or black market album. Their reaction to his 2003 visit is a mixture of frenzy and rapture; in interview after interview, what one fan calls the Beatles' "gentle intervention" is credited with helping to bring down the whole Soviet system, simply because they represented a creativity and freedom that had been almost totally silenced. And that's all before Paul McCartney plays "Back in the U.S.S.R.," which inspires a response that simply must be seen and heard to be believed.

    Elsewhere, Macca and his superb band perform a variety of Beatles tunes, along with some highlights from his solo career and stint with Wings. Considering the dozens of classics in the John Lennon-Paul McCartney catalogue, the majority of them never performed live by the group, he could hardly go wrong.

    Still, the choices are almost unerring; along with "Hey Jude," "Yesterday," and "Let it Be" are some unexpected treats (including "Getting Better" and "She's Leaving Home" from the Sgt. Pepper album, as well as "Fool on the Hill," "I've Just Seen a Face," and "Two of Us"). And that's not all: additional footage from a show in St. Petersburg features "Drive My Car," "Helter Skelter," and a powerful medley of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band" and "The End."
    The sound and visuals are good, and the extra features (including a brief parallel history of the Beatles and the U.S.S.R. in the '60s) are interesting. No, the Beatles will never reform. But Paul McCartney - Live in Red Square ain't a bad substitute.

    This DVD is a feature-length world premiere special that tells the story of the ex-Beatle's historic visit to Russia on May 24, 2003. Marking the first time that McCartney had set foot on Russian soil, this concert and documentary also reveals the secret love affair that existed between the Russian people and McCartney during the Communist era.

    Paul McCartney "Live in Red Square" new DVD: ORDER IT NOW.

    .
    I got this as soon as it came out and its a real treat. It actually has 2 concerts and with different songs for the most part and the St Pete one maybe better than the Moscow one. If you like the Beatles this DVD is a must have.

    Um, how does one see any of this stuff from Live 8? I know tonight they are having clips of the best from around the world on TV, and my favorite classic rock radio in New York (Q 104.3) is playing live stuff through out the day, though it might only be from London.
    I hope to hear Neil Young, however, I wonder what I chooses to play. I hope for Rockin in the Free World.
