London (ANI): Madonna is planning global fundraiser on the lines of
Bob Geldof"s LIVE AID concert to benefit Malawi, according to
reports. The pop superstar, who has adopted two children from the
impoverished nation, has given a lot of money to the region through
her Raising Malawi Foundation.
And reports suggest that she is organising a new charity concert
to boost donations. Madonna has reportedly recruited U2 frontman
Bono to perform at the 'Walk Out of Poverty" event, which will take
place in September (10).
"Plans are in place to make this the biggest fundraiser the
world has ever seen. Madonna is throwing everything into it. She
knows the bigger the event the more money will be raised," the
Daily Express quoted a source as telling the Sunday Mirror,
The publication claims 60,000 fans will be given free tickets to
the stadium concert in Blantyre, Malawi. Geldof raised over 150
million pounds for famine relief in Africa with twin concerts held
in London and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in July 1985.
