Live 8 Italy - Rome, Circus Maximus


 

The Italian Live 8 concerts were held in the breathtaking Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy. The Circus Maximus is an ancient arena and mass entertainment venue located in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills. The Latin word circus, which comes from the Greek word kirkos, �circle, ring,� referred to a circular or oval area enclosed by rows of seats for spectators.

It was the first and largest circus. It  was first utilized for public games and entertainment by the Etruscan kings of Rome. The Maximus was used for chariot racing and it has been said that it could seat from 140,000 to over 250,000 people.


By 2:30 pm over 100,000 concert goers gathered in the ancient amphitheatre of Italy�s Circus Maximus to show their support for Live 8 Roma.  Singer Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran told the crowd �We as a species of humanity have to take responsibility for our brothers and sisters of Africa�. The fans rocked at Live8 Italy and listed to top Italian stars Irene Grandi and Jovanotti. Other extraordinary musical acts included Antonello Venditti, Articolo 31, Biagio Antonacci, Faith Hill, Francesco De Gregori, Francesco, Renga, Gemelli Diversi, Irene Grandi,  Laura Pausini, Le Vibrazioni, Max Pezzali, Negramaro, Nek, Noa, Tim Mcgraw, Tiromancino, and Claudio Baglioni.
