Over the past few weeks, I’ve spent countless hours enjoying live concerts by some of my favorite artists. If you’re a music lover, the LIVE 8 DVDs are a must have for your collection. Relive the historical music moments as artists from around the world teamed together to fight poverty. The DVDs chronicles what happened on Saturday, July 2, 2005.
