Performers include Paul McCartney, R.E.M. and U2 at London’s Hyde Park; Will Smith, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band and Stevie Wonder at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Crosby, Stills & Nash, Lauryn Hill and Brian Wilson at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate; Jamiroquai, Youssou N’Dour, Yannick Noah and Placebo at a Paris venue to be announced; and Duran Duran, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at Rome’s Circus Maximum. Recent additions are rumored to indicate both Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones have signed on to what is sure to be the music/humanitarian event of the year. These are not confirmed, but rumors only at this point.

    Wait, is that Yannick Noah the dread-locked tennis player? What’s he gonna do, hit the through-the-legs-with-his-back-to-the-net trick shot?

    Or is there a band clever enough to name themselves after Yannick Noah? In that case…I dig, I dig.

    Oh wait, I bet Yannick Noah the dread-locked tennis player became Yannick Noah the singer, didn’t he? Oh man, tell me he didn’t. Please tell me he didn’t.
