Bob Geldof, the driving force behind the Band Aid and Live Aid campaigns has announced five concerts in five cities for Live 8, to shine a spotlight on the issue of poverty in the developing world reports MTVnews.

The Free concerts will take place in London's Hyde Park, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, at the Circus Maximus in Rome and the Museum of Art in Philadelphia.

Bob Geldof, called a press conference in London on Monday to announce the lineup for the event in London's Hyde Park.

"We don't want your money, we want you, because every few seconds a child dies needlessly of extreme poverty," Bob Geldof said.

Live 8, will take place just days before leaders of the group of eight wealthy nations begin the G8 summit in Scotland on July 6 to discuss issues of climate change, debt relief and poverty.

"The G8 summit in Edinburgh, which follows the concert, offers an opportunity for the world's developed nations to really make a difference to do something positive for the third world," British Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell said. "Live 8 will set the scene."
