Although a decision has yet to made, it’s possible that footage from Elton’s Dublin show (where he’s to be supported by Rufus Wainwright and James Blunt) will be shown as part of Saturday’s Live 8.

Meanwhile, the Pet Shop Boys have been added to the line-up . . . at yet another site, Moscow’s Red Square. But Bob Geldof has taken himself off, figuring he isn’t a chart-topper nowadays.

VH1 will cover the concerts, starting at noon July 2, while ABC plans two hours of highlights at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
