    Live 8! Watch Now

    Watch Now!

    I couldn't get the webpage working in IE (due to a script error) but after a lot of trouble it seems to be working in Firefox now.

    Anyway, if you're having trouble with the annoying AOL webpage here are some direct links to the 320K WMP streams.

    LONDON
    PHILADELPHIA

    Bon Jovi was just playing in Philadelphia. Awesome!

    Crank up the volume!

    P.S These are the links to the .asx wrappers if above links didn't work.

    [edit]The concerts will be rebroadcast for the next few weeks. The links remain valid. The AOL coverage was excellent.[/edit]

    I saw Velvet Revolver... is that Slash from GNR playing there?

    Edit: Yes it is omg. And the bassist from GNR's there too. That group's an atrocity to GNR.

    I don't. I especially dislike the singing, I barely notice a change of tone ...

    Bill Gates managed to make an appearance at Hyde Park too, which I thought was pretty funny. Didn't hear much in the way of booing...

    OMG Floyd were awesome, miles better than anyone else in London. So good to see Waters and Gilmour together again on stage. Hope that wasn't a one-off. Waters seemed to have genuinely enjoyed playing with Floyd again.Just wish I had video'ed it. Spent all morning looking for a clip or two and have come up empty.

    At the Floyd fan site I use it points to a Bit Torrent here. I don't really know this Bit Torrent thing, I've heard some dubious comments about it so am reluctant to get involved.

    I think the Floyd were excellent, but restricting the set to 4 songs was a bit poor. There was plenty of rubbish that they could have trimmed to allow a bigger set for the decent acts (Paul McCartney, The Who, and of course the Floyd).

    Robbis Williams could easilly have been cut.

    Did McCartney play any songs that weren't Lennon/McCartney?
