Peter Gabriel is helping with another Live 8 concert on the second of July, according to an announcement made yesterday.
It will be at Cornwall’s Eden Project, and include at least a dozen African musicians, among them Youssou N’Dour.
Live 8 organisers have been criticised for not including such artists. But they claim the point was to draw attention to the problems of poverty by asking Elton and other high-profile people to participate.
And in related news, Bob Geldof says there will be another announcement tomorrow. That’s because yet more shows are in the works for Johannesburg, Tokyo and Toronto.
