Live Aid II Planned For Tsunami Victims


Recommended Posts

Bosses of a major British stadium are calling on bands like Coldplay, U2 and The Darkness to help raise millions for the victims of the Asian tsunami - by performing at a Live Aid-style extravaganza.


Chiefs at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, are frantically trying to gain the support of their country's politicians in their quest to stage a fundraising concert for the men, women and children left homeless, starving and at risk from disease in the aftermath of the 26 December 2004 disaster.


Organisers are hoping an "event of international proportions" will take place on 22 January 2005 - before the stadium is used for sporting events - but bosses appreciate they are working against an almost impossible deadline. Stadium manager Paul Sergeant says, "It's going to be tight. The pitch comes back into the stadium on the 24th of January. We won't be able to stage anything after that until the summer."


Sergeant insists talks are currently in place with a host of "A-list acts", reportedly including U2, Coldplay, The Darkness and Franz Ferdinand.
