Live 8 Gets Four-Part DVD

Set features "Sgt. Pepper" duet, Pink Floyd reunion and more

September 6, 2005 12:00 AM ET

A four-disc DVD set of the nine international concerts held on July 2nd as part of Live 8, an initiative organized by Bob Geldof to pressure the G8 to address extreme poverty in Africa, will be released on November 8th. A "generous" royalty from sales of the package -- which features performances from artists ranging from Paul McCartney's duet with U2's Bono on "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" to Pink Floyd's reunion -- will go to the Band Aid Trust for African relief.

The first three discs focus on the shows at London's Hyde Park and at Philadelphia's Museum of Art, with highlights from the events in Paris, Rome, Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Toronto and Johannesburg. In addition to the McCartney/Bono concert opener, duets include McCartney and George Michael, Stevie Wonder and Maroon 5's Adam Levine, and Coldplay and Richard Ashcroft.

The third disc closes with the entire Hyde Park lineup performing the Beatles' "Hey Jude." The final disc features a behind-the-scenes documentary of the London show, Pink Floyd's reunion rehearsal and other extras.

"I hope this will be the biggest-selling DVD of all time," says Geldof. "It deserves to be. More importantly, perhaps, it should be, for it will help us achieve our goal of changing the lives of the extreme poor for the better and making our generation the one that helped end the disgrace of poverty."

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
