The 'Live8' DVD brings together performances from the amazing series of concerts which took place around the world on the 2nd July, 2005.

This 4-disc set contains three discs of live footage taken from the 'Live8' shows staged in London and Philadelphia alongside key highlights from the seven other events staged across the world. Every artist who performed at London's Hyde Park and Philadelphia's Museum Of Art appear on the DVD, many of them with their full sets.

'Live8' opens with U2 and Paul McCartney's crowd-rousing rendition of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and also features Pink Floyd's historical reunion, Robbie Williams's show-stopping performance and Madonna's breathtakingly energetic set. Younger artists such as Snow Patrol, The Killers and Joss Stone comfortably intertwine with rock n' roll legends such as The Who and Sting. One-off duets come from Paul McCartney and George Michael, Stevie Wonder and Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Elton John and Pete Doherty and Coldplay and Richard Ashcroft. Disc 3 closes as the London concert closed on 2 July with the stars of 'Live8' Hyde Park taking to the stage for the stunning 'Hey Jude' finale.

Also threaded through the U.K. and U.S. acts are performances from artists who appeared at the 'Live8' concerts in Rome, Paris, Berlin, Toronto, Johannesburg and Moscow. Tracks from Green Day, Brian Wilson and Roxy Music in Berlin and Neil Young in Toronto are included along with the Pet Shop Boys in Moscow, Duran Duran in Rome, and Placebo and Muse in Paris.

Disc 4 features exclusive extras including a never-before-seen backstage documentary filmed at Hyde Park, Pink Floyd's 'Live8' reunion rehearsal, more acts from the 'Live8' global concerts including McFly and Bjork in Tokyo, films by The Who and Travis and a contribution from Ricky Gervais.

The special features section offers highlights from Edinburgh's Final Push concert at Murrayfield on July 6, which includes performances from James Brown, Travis and The Proclaimers.

EMI and the 'Live8' organisation have agreed that a generous royalty from sales of the 'Live8' DVD will go to the Band Aid Trust for the relief of hunger and poverty in Africa.

'Live8' was held on 2 July 2005. Nine simultaneous, free concerts starring the cream of international rock and pop artists were staged in London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Tokyo, Moscow, Toronto, Johannesburg and Philadelphia. The concerts acted as a starting point for "The Long Walk to Justice" in support of the "Make Poverty History" and "Global Call to Action" campaigns and was timed to focus attention on the critical decisions made by the G8 summit four days later.

"You're such a lovely audience, we'd like to take you home with us" sang Bono. Now the two million-strong live audience and 5 billion viewers around the world can take 'Live8' home with them...
