McCartney & U2 @ Live8 2005 Rehearsals & Gig

Hi
Just a few pics from Patrice Guino 's archives for you :

" I get there around 10 30 am they already had started the rehearsals , they played Sergent Pepper 3-4 times and that was it.
Note : there is a Pink Floyd's backdrop.
Then it was time for U2 to rehearse on their own and finally Coldplay but we couldn't see them as we were asked to leave the premises as security wanted the pit clear before opening the doors a hour later.

We were lucky to be there the day before for the whole afternoon watching Macca & George Michael, Sting , Madonna ( who rehearsed her 3 songs set for more than 75 min in front of Pink Floyd's ( & family ) Nick Mason, David Gilmour and Richard Wright ). Believe me she's a real Professionnal.
And finally The Pink Floyd with Roger Waters at sunset , that was VERY emotional when they started performing the entire set they will play in front of more than 100 000 people in hyde Park and dozens of millions on TV the day after. We were just a handfull and that was THE FIRST TIME they were playing together for 25 years .
I will always remember these moments. "
