What happened? Live 8 has begun, with the first show, taking place in Japan. Performers included Bjork, Good Charlotte, and many popular acts from overseas. But attendance was a “disappointing” 10,000 people. The rest of the Live 8 concerts will be underway soon, with shows in Philadelphia, London, Rome, and more.
Plus, there will be street demonstrations called “The Long Walk to Justice” in Washington, Berlin, Paris, Rome, London, and Edinburgh.
