    Hi!

    I think it's a Cool idea. Tis better Garth be with the best singers like Paul and Bruce. That's just my opinion. Among his peers.

    !

    Garth better accept! hes crazy if he doesn't!
    there is a bunch of awesome artists already listed, the only thing that could make it even better is if U2 was added!(which its never too late, and its def. a possibility!)

    I have read that U2 is probably going to appear as well. They are actually on the East Coast that week, and as luck would have it...they have that entire weekend free. I'd be surprised if they don't show. Hopefully Garth will too.

    It's exactly something they love to do

    Certainly everyone has noticed how songs have taken on whole new meanings since 9/11. One could listen to U2's "Stuck In A Moment" and hear the words in a whole new light. But someone on a U2 message board I frequent was perfect in saying this the day after the tragedy took place...that nobody in the US will ever listen to the song "Sunday Bloody Sunday" the same way again. It was written about the war and terror that has gripped Northern Ireland, but give it a listen...and see how true the words ring in our current times. "I can't believe the news today, I can't close my eyes and make it go away...how long, how long must we sing this song....how long, how looooooong, cause tonight.....we can be as one tonight."

    Update

    Not sure what final line up is but

    here's a link


    http://www.livedaily.citysearch.com/news/3708.html

    Paul McCartney will headline an Oct. 20 concert at New York's Madison Square Garden--dubbed Live Aid 2--to raise funds for victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, according to published reports. He reportedly has invited a number of major stars to perform, including Garth Brooks, Bruce Springsteen and Eminem, though no artists have been confirmed.

    Among the other artists who have been invited to participate are Mary J. Blige, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Lenny Kravitz, Limp Bizkit, the Who, and the surviving members of Led Zeppelin, British newspaper the Sun reported. (Led Zeppelin reformed in 1985 to perform at the first Live Aid benefit in 1985, a show that raised money for hunger relief.)

    A four-hour block of the concert reportedly will be broadcast on MTV and VH1.

    No announcement has been made as to which charities will benefit from the concert. Ticket prices and on-sale information is also pending.

    Yep...Interference. And I have to put Bono & Edge in the same category as Garth when it comes to "Class." Everyone knows that G will sign autographs for his fans, but after I saw them in Anaheim, both Bono & Edge came out at 1:30 in the morning and signed and took pictures with the 20-30 fans still waiting for them to leave the arena. They don't always do this...but I've heard that they will stop and sign before and after shows as long as they have the time to spare. I think it's always nice when superstars on a level like Garth or Bono will take their valuable time on a consistent basis and share it with those who got them where they are now.

    In regards to the earlier post which said that onsale information is pending. The onsale date is scheduled for Sunday October 7 at 12 Noon. Since this is a One Night Only performance in NYC, you can not only bet they can name their prices...but also that your chances of getting tix are Slim & None....and Slim has just left the building. Even I might consider a cross country journey for this lineup if I were lucky enough to score seats. There are 3 Performers I'd travel to see....Garth, U2 & Bruce...and 2 of them are already a strong likelihood. Guess we'll see if Garth responds in a positive fashion.

    Your Choice is good

    HI socalgarthfan

    Your choice is wise my fellow Garth Fan.

    My all time singer Is Bruce and Garth is close with U2 having respect from myself.

    Even if I wasn't a Garth Fan I would be there just to see Bruce even for 5 mins. Mad fans we are, lol

    Up till recently I have collected every single release of Bruce in teh UK.

    I've missed a of Garth's so I'm not sure what was officially released as I have a lot of promo stuff.

    Take care

    Live Aid 2

    Hello All!

    According to the "Music News" segment on New Country Y107 (http://www.newcountryy107.com), Paul McCartney's benefit dubbed "Live Aid 2" is scheduled for Saturday, October 20 (my 23rd birthday!!) at Madison Square Garden.

    I hope this info is good enough for now. If anyone out there has any additional info, it would be greatly appreciated. Not only would I be supporting a wonderful cause, I would be able to see Garth on my Birthday!!!

    Good luck and God bless!

    Is he...?

    So is Garth actually confirmed for this?

    I mean, I think it's one of those things he'd be honoured to do, but there might be scheduling conflicts and that sort of thing...

    Just wonderin'

    Rings a Bell

    Hi Brian


    Greasy Lake rings a bell but I've not until this month come back into the music scene.

    I presume you meant as in Bruce stuff.

    Reminds me of something though. I need to start burning my Video tape stuff to VCD Disc's.

    I have some treasured Bruce stuff from TV in the 80's ( whole concert's) including interviews. Can't afford to lose the Tape quality, lol.

    Take care

    Greasy lake is the DAnish run Bruce site. very cool IMO.
    Not better then PG, but still up there.

    So you have lots of bruce stuff from the 80'2?? How do you transfer it to VCD??

    I assume you are going to buy his new DVD as well??

    Cool

    HI

    Thanks for that.

    I didn't know he planned to release the DVD as I gave hope when the CD came out.

    Pitty he didn't do a Dual pack with the DVD and CD.

    I have alot of his stuff including 12" Remixes and Picture disc's.

    I didn't buy the real expensive one's as people wanted too much.

    I have a lot of the unofficial stuff too.

    I am not sure what happened to the No Nukes DVD as I am sure it was suppose to be released? maybe I'm wrong as I missed the Video version.

    You know what threw me years ago when I was sent my first Garth tape.

    The song The River, I thought to myself , is it the same song until I listened to it.

    Just One River but on opposite side's I guess.

    About VCD , I have various computer stuff including a direct VCD maker including able to make Divx from MPEG2 stuff.

    I need to play around with this , and what best, but to try some Bruce or Garth stuff.

    You take care fellow fan, PM me if you want to contact me to exchange email addy.

    *hehehe* I know ALL about that That's why I say Bruce brought me to Garth and garth brought me to Chris LeDoux
    I jumped into the same trap with both feet as I saw the title. I bought the album and was so disappointed I didn't listen to it for 6 months

    I haven't heard anything about the No Nukes DVD Absolutely nothing.

    I agree though that a combined DVD/CD release of the NUC shows would have been cool. But probably also expensive
    I know I payed way too much here in DK for my complete video anthology
