Snow Patrol, TRAVIS and FEEDER united in sending one last message to the G8 world leaders at EDINBURGH’s MURRAYFIELD STADIUM on Wednesday as part of the last LIVE 8 concert (July 6).

Also appearing at the gig were Bob Geldof, Bob Geldof and James Brown performing alongside Live 8 figureheads [/a], Bono and Midge Ure.

Taking to the stage with messages of support at Edinburgh 50,000: The Final Push – named after the amount of people attending the show – were Hollywood stars George Clooney, Susan Sarandon and Djimon Hounsou, with British celebrities Peter Kay, Chris Evans, Davina McCall and Lenny Henry.

Jamie Cullum and Natasha Bedingfield also joined forced for a version of The Beatles’ ’All Need Is Love’ whilst Bono sang with The Corrs on their track ’When The Stars Go Blue’.

The star offered singer Andrea Corr a yellow rose as he walked on and waltzed with her as the song ended.

“Don’t let this be about politics, don’t just come to a compromise,” Bono pleaded with the G8 leaders at the end of the show. “Do all you can, not the least you can do”.

“It’s been an unbelievable week,” said [a], “and it’s been the most incredible night. We come to them (the G8 leaders) with 3.8 billion people in our back pockets, so how can they deny us?”

Despite police concerns that there may have been trouble surrounding the event in the wake of violent clashes with protesters on the streets of Edinburgh and near Gleneagles earlier in the week, none was apparent.
