The official Live 8 Book out next week
With a foreword by Bob Geldof and over 300 colour photographs, the official Live 8 book will be published by Random House/Century on August 1st, and will chart one of the most momentous days the world has seen in decades.
From Geldof’s initial reluctance to stage another Band Aid event to the lead up to the concerts around the world and the day itself, this book is a unique record of an extraordinary day witnessed by over 85% of the world’s population.
The book will also contain backstage images, exclusive photographs from the concerts around the world, reflections and quotes from the many performers. The “Queen Bee of Pop” is one of the artist whose picture made the book’s cover and has a series of stunning pages dedicated to her performance in London’s Hyde Park inside.
Live 8 includes text and pictures reminding us exactly what the day was about and what is now required in the battle towards making poverty history. Includes reflections on the outcome of the landmark G8 summit in Edinburgh. The book is priced £15.99 in the UK – for every copy sold £5 will go to Live 8. A contribution made possible by the generosity of everyone involved in the making and selling of the book.
