On Saturday July 2, 2005 performances by over 150+ bands and 1200+ music artists in 10 different cities was broadcast on 182 television networks and 2,000 radio networks around the globe to try to help end poverty in Africa.

Live 8 was a string of benefit concerts that took place in the G8 states and in South Africa. They were timed to precede the G8 Conference and Summit held at the Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder, Scotland from July 6-8, 2005. This event also coincided with the 20th anniversary of the original “Live Aid” Concert, organized by Bob Geldof.

The purpose of the Live 8 petition, the Global Call for Action Against Poverty and the musical performances were planned to pressure world leaders to drop the debt of the world’s poorest nations, increase and improve aid, and negotiate fair trade rules in the interest of poorer countries.
