Well, for some today they've made history and for many others it's the second time. The 2nd of July saw the Live 8 concerts organised by Bob Geldof in aid of poverty. Like many, I was watching it on TV. Here's my opinion:

I thought the performances were half-half with Madonna easily giving the best! I do feel that this event was rushed as many performers started out in "bad" form, sounding like they hadn't rehearsed. I also felt that the crowd were "quite" fed up after a while and felt like nothing special was happening. Also being told by the, "delectible" ;), Fearn Cotton many times that the atmosphere was "estatic", "electric" etc, that the BBC didn't organise it well enough. You can say the event was live and big and there would be problems, but I've seen many big events that the BBC has been the main "Live" broadcaster and never has it been so un-organised.

Finally, please do not get me started on the suit Jonathan woss :D was wearing and the colour of the seat he was on :shock: :D

Well, I thought it had just finished, its going on still.

Tube services are staying on until all the concert people have cleared I believe, and there are extra train services planned now I believe.

I'd leave them to it. Bob Geldof's got enough money to give them a ride home. :D :lol:

Live 8 was fantastic! Most of my favourite bands played, and all lived up to expectations - Snow Patrol, The Killers, U2, Razorlight and Keane. Also, singers that I've not been as impressed with before were superb live. Madonna's performance was amazing, and R Williams really got the crowds going.

I really enjoyed this, and hopefully the petition that was being signed by all the fans can make a difference to world poverty. Well done Bob Geldof, top concert!

I was trying to get soon zzz's inbetween the International Festival Of the Sea {IFOS} and going to work, so i missed Velvet Revolver, just caught their interview afterwards
I saw The Who and i reckon they were the best act on there. Just been listening to Pink Flloyd {downloaded it and The Who} sounded pretty good
What i wanna know is, if Bobs' got so much money, why does he always have the same hat on?

Velvet Revolver Where pretty good, although like Jonathen Ross said, alot of the people dont understnad, or know about that kinda music.

does the real Slash have kids, cause when he was walking past fern cotten he was holding one.

The Floyd By Far where the best, ever the BBC opinion poll shows it!

Slash has a few kids, yeah. I see Scott Weiland gave a good answer when asked if it was the biggest crowd he'd ever played to
What i wanna know is why the show relied on people from 20 years ago to be a fair slice of the big names
