British stars to play 'Live Aid 2' tsunami aid concert

UPI News Service, 01/21/2005 

Eric Clapton, Lulu and the Manic Street Preachers are among acts playing at an aid concert that hopes to raise more than $1.8 million for tsunami relief.

Dubbed "Live Aid 2," the Saturday event will feature 21 acts over seven hours, including British bands Franz Ferdinand and Embrace, Irish band Snow Patrol and Kelly Jones from the Stereophonics.

Organizers have confirmed all 60,000 tickets have been sold for the gig to be held at the Millennium Stadium in Wales.

Grant Nicholas of Feeder, an international rock band also playing, told BBC Radio One: "We've seen everything that's been happening on TV over Christmas and it's been really horrendous and so obviously we've felt very strongly -- if we can help in any way to raise money we will."

All profits will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee's tsunami aid appeal. The concert will be broadcast live.
