"It's the biggest entertainment event in television history," says Kevin Wall, executive producer of the Live 8 television broadcast. Viewers in the United States will be able to view highlights of the Live 8 concert on Saturday evening, July 2. Live 8 organizers say that the concert will also be aired in about 160 countries in all, reaching an estimated 5.9 billion potential television viewers.
In addition, AOL will stream six of the eight concerts simultaneously on the Web, free of charge. The Philadelphia, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Toronto, Tokyo and South Africa shows will be archived and made available on demand for about six weeks after the concerts in Philadelphia, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Toronto, Tokyo and South Africa.
