Live Aid II In Planning Stage

Live Aid II is in the planning stage, according to the BBC. A huge musical event to raise money for AIDS sufferers is being planned for Oct. 20 at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. Talent has not been confirmed, but Madonna, Robbie Williams, George Michael and S Club 7 have all been approached to play. The event is being organized by BBC Wales in conjunction with the Red Hot Aids charity and former Ultravox frontman Midge Ure. The stars will perform songs from stage and screen musicals, backed by a full orchestra.

Live Aid II will raise money for the Red Hot Aids Charitable Trust. Midge Ure helped organize Live Aid with Bob Geldof in 1985, which is said to have raised more than $100,000 for victims of famine in Africa. That event took place simultaneously at London's Wembley Stadium and JFK Stadium in Philadelphia.
