BUT WITHOUT CONCORDE, HOW WILL PHIL PLAY THEM BOTH?

More to the point, though, if the idea of Live8 is to somehow raise some sort of vague awareness of the G8 summit in Scotland, what exactly will be gained by having a Washington leg, with or without Eminem heading it up? Doing a pop concert in London is far enough away from the actual capitalist carve-up in the first place; adding a US bit turns it ever more from political rally into a mere pop concert. We imagine Blair will be popping up to endorse Geldof's scheme any moment now.
