Well it's 21:45GMT right now and I am doing another entry while Mariah Carey is performing.
I didn't expect Bob Geldof to come on and perform 'I Don't Like Monday's' and I am glad he did. I am also glad that, again as in Live Aid, he stopped for a few seconds after the line 'And the lesson today is how to die....'
Let us not forget what this is about and why we are involved, if we have been, and if not why not. You still have a chance to sign the petition on the Live 8 website, a link is on this blog.
I particually enjoyed Stereophonics and Keane's set and Travis performing 'Why Does It Always Rain...' with a backdrop of photos of Africans with rolexs, deodorants, etc... Again if we can afford to help we can.
Words to songs are taking new meanings, as in Live Aid. Keane performed 'Somewhere Only We Know' in their set and that seemed to mean something different, I have just seen Sting perform 'Every Breath You Take..' with photos of the G8 leaders behind him.
And it is still going on, still a lot of performances and yet nearly eight hours have gone since Hyde Park joined Live 8 and the time has just flown by
And BTW once you have signed your name on the Live 8 petition, get someone else to do so as well
PS And let us also not forget, as Lenny Henry said, another reason why we are involved today.
We are scared of Bob.
