International stars such as Bono, Bob Geldof and Dave Matthews announced "Live 8", a series of free global concerts to take place on July 2. "Live 8" concerts will be held simultaneously in Philadelphia, PA; London, England; Rome, Italy; Paris, France; and Berlin, Germany. The "Live 8" concerts are part of the ONE Countdown to the G8 Summit to urge President Bush and other leaders of the world's 8 wealthiest nations to save millions of lives when they meet together in Scotland, July 5th to 8th.
The global concerts will feature performances by a historic line up of artists including Dave Matthews Band, U2, Jay Z, Paul McCartney, Black Eyed Peas, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey and many, many more!
This year marks 20 years since LIVE AID, the biggest charity concert ever staged. This time, the concerts will not be asking for your money, but your voice. Your voice is urgently needed to urge President Bush to Make Poverty History at the G8 summit.
As part of the ONE Countdown to the G8, we invite you to join us at Live 8 and the Long Walk to Justice Events including:
ONE rally in Washington, DC on July 1st hosted by George Clooney.
