In the London concert (which I'm pleased to be attending), each performer is limited to 20 minutes due to the quanity and quality of acts playing and the limited time available. Much like the original Live Aid I guess.bookshopboy wrote:It is exactly the same thing but on a smaller scale. If PSB decide to play something new, I'm sure it will be only one new song and (if the rumours are true) it will probably be "No time for tears".jamie1978 wrote:The global premiere of a new Madonna single is hardly the same thing!
In Moscow, Pet Shop Boys are the only succesful international group playing, so there will be more airtime available for them, though, granted, still less than your average performance.
NTFT has not even been officially confirmed as a single yet. What would be the point of performing it on a time-limited set when the OST isnt even due out until September? Its not going to achieve anything, the crowd wont react, it will be a counter-productive move. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are many things, but completely stupid isnt one of them.
I think people need to get real about this. Its going to be a greatest hits set. Exclude Madonna if you must, but thats what every other artist will be doing, out of respect for the event if nothing else. No-one wants an unenthusiastic, bored crowd. This isnt a difficult concept to grasp!
