You forgot Dido.

The best thing all day.

I'm serious.

Come back ...


Along with everyone else I was queing for the toilet when she was on...

I also loved Fearne's "interview" with Robbie a couple of hours before his set. He looked totally rat-arsed and insisted on not talking about Live8 but how he was single, she was single and why didn't they just "get it on" right there and then.

Lovely to see a presenter squirm so much !

I thought Robbie Williams was very good. Can't believe Geldof (who snuck on despite Goldsmith trying to keep him off, havign secretly agreed to use Travis's gear) did the "The lesson today is how to die" pause again. Much like most of the rest of the concert, something of a re-heated souffle.

I was disappointed they didn't show anything of the PSB in Moscow, either, at least not during the bits I was watching.


Actually the PSB turned up in the highlights package at about 3 am -- yep, I was there right to the end ... although apparently, if you had Sky you could tune into any of the concerts as they were on interactively ...

Was their set any good? What did they play?

Actually, I just found the report on their official website - should have looked there earlier:

"Live 8 in Moscow - 3 July '05
Pet Shop Boys played in Moscow last night at the conclusion of the Russian Live 8 concert in Red Square.

After a series of Russian bands had performed, at 10 pm (local time) Pet Shop Boys took to the stage situated at the side of the Kremlin and in front of St Basil’s Cathedral and, having been asked to perform for 45 minutes, this was their set list:

It’s a sin
Domino dancing
New York City boy
Always on my mind
Where the streets have no name (I can’t take my eyes of you)
West End girls
Left to my own devices
Go West

Joining Chris and Neil onstage were Sylvia Mason-James (vocals), Mark Refoy (guitars) and Dawne Adams (percussion). Live sound was mixed by Pete Gleadall. After the final song, everyone left the stage assuming the show was over but most of the audience refused to leave so Pet Shop Boys returned and performed “It’s a sin” for a second time!"
