Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium’s efforts to round up a string of bands and artists to feature in a 2 day charity music event is already being called Live Aid II, in some papers.
In the very tight time frame of under three weeks, the organisers are hoping to attract and stage big names such as Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, Robbie Williams, The Darkness and of course our very own U2 to give their support to help raise as much money as possible for the victims of the Asian tsunami disaster.
Stadium general manager Paul Sergeant says they’re hoping to sell between 60 and 70 thousand tickets for the event that’s scheduled for the weekend of January 22 and 23. More news and a possible line up may follow tomorrow, January 4.
Take note that while we do have it on good authority that U2 have indeed been approached, they have not confirmed their involvement as of yet.
