Alicia Keys, Toby Keith, Josh Groban and the Black Eyed Peas have been added to the lineup for the Philadelphia edition of Live 8. They join previously confirmed acts such as Stevie Wonder, Dave Matthews Band, Destiny's Child, Jay-Z, Lincoln Park, Rob Thomas and Maroon 5 for the July 2 event at the city's Museum of Art.
In addition, such film stars as Chris Tucker, Natalie Portman, Jimmy Smits, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Connolly have signed on as presenters.
AOL Music will carry all six of the worldwide Live 8 concerts live and EMI has inked a deal to release the event on DVD in November. The company will tailor the content of the releases to each worldwide market.
"I hope this will be the biggest selling DVD of all time. It deserves to be," says Live 8 organizer Bob Geldof. "More importantly perhaps, it should be, for it will help us achieve our goal of changing the lives of the extreme poor for the better and making our generation the one that helped end the disgrace of poverty."
