Wow. That line up is pretty impressive. You'd think that 20 years down the line that these kind of events wouldnt be able to replicate the
achievements of LiveAid.
There is also an estimated 1 million stong march in Scotland to show support for the debt write-off plans for African countries.
With so much negativity abounding its heartening to see that some people with clout also have good hearts.
