The star-studded charity concert is go...

BOB GELDOF has confirmed that he and MIDGE URE are planning a huge gig to coincide with the G8 summit in July, although it will not be called LIVE AID 2.

Acts rumoured to appear include U2, Paul McCartney and Madonna, who also took part in the 1985 Live Aid concert organised by Geldof. There have also been mutterings of a Spice Girls reunion.

“What started 20 years ago is coming to a political point in a few weeks,” said Geldof. “There’s more than a chance that the boys and girls with guitars will finally get to turn the world on its axis.”

“We’ll have all the big names we can find,” Ure said. “It’s big, and it’s as petrifying as the build-up to Live Aid, if not more so.”
