Live8 @ Berlin
On of concerts for the Live8 event – initiated and organized mainly by good old Sir Bob Geldof – will take place in Berlin Saturday 2nd July (almost simultaneously with London, Paris and Rome). Besides popular german bands like Silbermond, Wir sind Helden, Die Toten Hosen and Soehne Mannheims famous international groups like A-ha, Faithless and Green Day will act on stage as well. As the concert is free (as in free beer) I’m really looking forward to it. Should be a nice weekend event if the weather lives up to its promise.
And not to forget about all the “Woah, free concert? Famous bands! Yeah, let’s go there”-like talk, the Live8 Event itself will be a sign for all the politicians, governments, companies and whoever else has the power and responsibility to change things in the world. They definitly can’t go on like they did in the past few years.
30,000 children die, needlessly, of extreme poverty. This has to end now.
If you can’t attend the concert, the ARD will broadcast it live form 2-8pm.
