Sir Bob Geldof Pulls off BandAid 30 with Bono, Chris Martin, One Direction and More (Watch)


The 30th anniversary of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” will send proceeds to people suffering from Ebola. Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure are back. They even involved Adele’s producer Paul Epworth but they couldn’t get the “Rolling in the Deep” singer to participate. Still, they have Bono, Seal, Sinead O’ Connor, Chris Martin, Angelique Kidjo, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding and a bunch of UK pop stars. All done in 36 hours and obviously before Bono took his bike spill and Zayn Malik got a stomach virus.
