LIVE 8 Performances By MÖTLEY CRÜE, VELVET REVOLVER, LINKIN PARK To be Documented On DVD

EMI has inked a deal to release the the worldwide Live 8 concerts on DVD in November. The company will tailor the content of the releases to each market. Artists who will perform at the concerts include DEEP PURPLE, MÖTLEY CRÜE, LINKIN PARK, VELVET REVOLVER, DEF LEPPARD, PINK FLOYD, and BON JOVI.

Live 8 organizer Bob Geldof said: "I hope this will be the biggest selling DVD of all time. It deserves to be. More importantly perhaps, it should be, for it will help us achieve our goal of changing the lives of the extreme poor for the better and making our generation the one that helped end the disgrace of poverty. We are very grateful to EMI for their financial contribution which helped to make the July 2nd concerts happen everywhere on the planet and thus nudge the world a little closer towards our shared aim."

The concerts are being held ahead of the G8 summit in Scotland on July 6 where eight world leaders will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop debt and make trade laws fair to stop 30,000 children dying needlessly of extreme poverty every single day.
