There were rumors that Canadian rock trio Rush was asked to perform but refused, possibly because of Neil Peart's appreciation of the ideas of Ayn Rand as expressed in his songs (individual rights in economics and otherwise, rational self-interest etc.,) which contradict the theme and motives of the event.

Location

For weeks leading up to the concert, several locations were considered as potential hosts for the Canadian Live 8 concert.


Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario was the first choice for the concert.[1] However, on June 10, the federal Public Works and Canadian Heritage departments, along with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police rejected the idea of using the site for Live 8. Government officials felt that Parliament Hill, with a capacity of 75,000 people was too small for the event, which was originally expected to attract over 150,000 participants. They were also concerned about damage to the local buildings and grounds.

On June 15, Bob Geldof announced Toronto, Ontario as the host of the Canadian Live 8 concert. [2] At that point, several venues were considered as candidates for the concert: Downsview Park, which hosted the Molson Canadian Rocks for Toronto concert and a World Youth Day mass [3]; Exhibition Place, which also hosted World Youth Day activities; Molson Amphitheatre, and Sunnyside Beach [4], which would have involved floating stages on Lake Ontario. Ultimately, none of these considerations were used for the concert. There were several financial and logistical problems related to these bids. For example, both Downview Park and Molson Amphitheatre were hosting concerts on Canada Day and it was impossible to set up the Live 8 stage a day before the concert.

Jeff Brown

Jeff Brown is a deejay and program manager for the classic rock station CHEZ-FM in Ottawa. When the lineup for the Live 8 concert was released, he criticized it heavily, dubbing it a "bad Juno lineup". His greatest complaint was Stompin' Tom Conners being left off the lineup, and wasn't even asked. He then vowed to play nothing but Stompin' Tom Conners on his show until Bob Geldof at least asked Stompin' Tom if he wanted to join. He only was able to play Stompin' Tom Conners for that one show, as he was subsequently suspended. He has since been re-instated as the afternoon deejay. However, Brown has a history of pulling off these stunts, which are basically done just for publicity reasons. Jamaicas style of rapping that was the predecessor of todays rap/hip hop. ...
