Live8 Gr8 Part 2
Well, Hyde Park's finished and we're onto Philly. Pity BBCi's coverage has finished as some of the other concerts are still going on as well, but I'm flagging now so I'll be off to bed soon.... I'll be heading off to the land of nod satisfied though, with storming sets from Robbie (who got the biggest reaction of the night by far ) and The Who and Pink Floyd, who showed the youngsters how it's done. The only low points were the dreadful Pete Doughety, Velvet Revolver and Maria "I've got a massuse and here's my new single" Carey. But that won't detract from Brian Wilson, Pet Shop Boys, The Cure, Def Leppard Bon Jovi and all the other great acts we've seen..... My only worry is that after all this, after Edinburgh, after the G8 summit, it will all fade away and nothing will change, and suddenly another 20 years will pass, and while these events will be history, poverty and suffering will not....
