Bob Geldof denied on Monday that he had teamed up with fellow rocker Bono for a repeat of the 1985 Live Aid concerts to raise money to help ease third world debt. The Sun had earlier run a front page story saying Prime Minister Tony Blair was backing ‘Live Aid II’, which would be fronted by British rockers Robbie Williams, Oasis, Radiohead and Coldplay. “I told the Sun this afternoon it was not true,” Geldof stated. “This only serves to undermine the concerted efforts of those concerned with the tragedy of poverty in Africa. However, if the Prime Minister wants to organize a Live Aid II, then good luck to him.” The full story at thesun.co.uk has since been archived.
