Live 8 London experience. by
Live 8 concert held July 2, 2005 was an experience to top
all experiences; probably the biggest, loudest and greatest
gig that I have ever attended. I am sure without a doubt that
this concert will end up in the history books and be something
people talk about for a long time to come.
difficult to understand the massive amount of work that went
into making the Live 8 concerts happen. Especially considering
these concerts were planned in such a short period of time.
The battle call this time
around 'make poverty history'. A bit different than the Bob
Geldof back in 1985 ranting to the television "give me
the fuckin' money".
has to be said that even though the Live 8 concert was organized
in such a short amount of time, every concert (whether it
was Live 8 London or Live 8 Berlin, Live 8 Paris, or Live
8 Canada) was linked together without a hitch. I sat on the
grass in Hyde Park, London and I saw Green Day in Berlin and
many other acts as well from all over the world. I saw Bon
Jovi and Will smith at Live 8 Philadelphia and watched Motley
Crue at Live 8 Canada. The screen lit up with Nelson Mandela
in Live 8 South Africa, and back to Bjork at Live 8 Japan.
The only flaw at Hyde
Park Live 8 London was the fact that there was a delay of
images and music. I heard a performer's music here in London
and then saw their image on the screen a couple of seconds
out of sync. It was odd that that did not happen to the foreign
Live 8 concert contributors. When the Live 8 DVD set comes
out I will surely buy it.
All My Favorite Acts
8 London was awesome for me because it was single-handedly
the largest collection of most of my favorite bands, all of
them playing live, wonderfully.
