Live 8 confirmed for Toronto

geldoff.jpgBob Geldof, the Nobel Prize winning, hunger hating, debt relieving, musician and activist, officially announced Toronto as the Canadian location for Live 8. With less than a month to go before the July 2nd concert and Canada Day events taking place all over the city the on the 1st, planning Live 8 is going to involve a lot of tough decision making. Where is it going to be? Who’s going to play? Torontoist comes through with a list of available performers to help out the concert reps, before the 10am Tuesday press conference.
Rumour has it the Barenaked Ladies, Jann Arden, Our Lady Peace, and Billy Talent are on board, but what about these potential additions:
Rolling Stones
Tragically Hip
Michael Jackson
Kardinal Offishall
Broken Social Scene or any off-shoot band
Arcade Fire
At Downsview? Or at least NOT Barrie Park?
