How Certain Millionaires Can Help Make Poverty History - They Can Give a Few Bars of a Song

Millionaire television producer Bob Geldof has announced plans for an international series of popular music concerts to coincide with the G8 summit at Gleneagles, Scotland, on July 2nd. The concerts are taking place at five venues - London, Paris, Rome, Berlin and Philadelphia, all cities of G8 countries simultaneously with the G8 summit.

The free concert in London's Hyde Park will feature millionaire Madonna, millionaires Coldplay, millionaire Dido and millionaires REM. Millionaires Bon Jovi and millionaire Stevie Wonder will perform in Philadelphia, while millionaires Duran Duran will perform in Rome.

The millionaires are assembling in support of the Make Poverty History organisation, who were recently in the news concerning allegations that the trendy white wristbands that show the wearer's conscience is in the right place towards his less-developed brethren are made in the same sort of sweatshop as the wearer's Nike sneakers. The assembled millionaires' position on the sweatshop issue is unclear at time of going to press.
