We're a little confused about the now-official Live 8 gig: on one hand, Geldof insists it musn't be called Live Aid II, on the other, Geldof implies it, well, is Live Aid Part II:

"What started 20 years ago is coming to a political point in a few weeks," said Geldof. "There's more than a chance that the boys and girls with guitars will finally get to turn the world on its axis. What we do in the next five weeks is seriously, properly, historically, politically important."

Steady on Bob, don't undersell yourself. Further indications that this is a continuation of the first Live Aid is the inclusion of Sting. Doubtless Annie Lennox is sitting by the phone.
