Run in support of the UK’s Make Poverty History campaign and the Global Call for Action Against Poverty, ten simultaneous concerts were held on July 2 and one on July 6 .
More than 1, 000 musicians performed at the concerts, which were broadcast on 182 television networks and 2, 000 radio networks.
