According to the June 27, 2005 Mirror, all Live 8 acts will have a time limit of 15 minutes. So some will set up and dismantle instruments while others are still onstage.
And as previously mentioned by EJW, Pete Doherty will be singing with Elton. They are doing an updated version of T Rex‘s Children of The Revolution.
Two days later, the Rocket Man will do another duet. For the first time in public, he and Patti LaBelle are performing Your Song. This will be at the Philly Freedom concert, where tickets are still available for the ball (which is 80% sold out).
Meanwhile, Roc-A-Fella Records plans to release a new version of Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. It’s from Macy Gray and the late ODB. An exact date has not been decided upon, but it will be included on the former Wu-Tang Clan star’s fourth solo album.
