Live 8Bob Geldof's consciousness raising, one day mega-concert produced some memorable performances. There was much to choose from as Saturday's Live 8 was broadcast live from hosting venues in London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Philadelphia, Barrie, Tokyo, Moscow and Johannesburg.
Twenty years after taking the stage for the original Live Aid, Madonna provided one of the musical highlights with an electric performance of "Like a Prayer."
The show in London's Hyde Park opened with a historic collaboration between U2 and Sir Paul McCartney, who kicked off the show by teaming up for a live performance of "Sgt. Pepper's."
A seemingly impossible reunion took place when Pink Floyd founder/lyricist Roger Waters joined his bandmates onstage for the first time in more than 20 years. The group never sounded better as their renditions of "Breathe", "Money, "Wish You Were Here" were spot on. They encored with their classic "Comfortably Numb," from The Wall.
Geldof's promised "greatest concert ever" may have lived up to it's hype. Millions watched the globe-spanning concerts in person and an estimated billion or more tuned in to the broadcast for what will likely be the most-watched music event in history.
