Bob Geldof performed with his band The Boomtown Rats in Exeter last night (Sunday 9 November) amid speculation that he's planning a new record to commemorate 30 years since Band Aid. His passion to help remains the same but a song hasn't yet been agreed.
It's 30 years almost to the week of the first record so there's a lot of pressure on me to do something but there has to be a purpose, I'm not interested in nostalgia I'm not really interested in talking about the past, never mind looking at it, there ain't no rear view mirror in this car so it has to be now.
The full line up for the 2014 offering of Do They Know It's Christmas? is expected to be announced later today.Read the full story ›

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has been honoured at a star-studded awards ceremony for his outstanding contribution to live music in the UK.
The 79-year-old, who runs the festival at Worthy Farm with his daughter Emily, founded it in 1970 and it is now one of the most famous music events in the world.
He said: "After crawling through a hole in the hedge to take a peep at Freddie Bannister's Bath Blues Festival in 1970, I can't believe that 44 years of semi-controlled chaos has led to me receiving this prestigious award. Thank you all so much."
Many of the acts who have performed over the years sent messages paying tribute to Eavis.
Damon Albarn - who has performed with his bands Blur and Gorillaz - saying: "I'd like to thank you for your husbandry of the musical health of the British Isles and far further afield."
Lily Allen, who has been going the festival since she was a child before performing many years later, said: "Your festival is literally better than Christmas. I love you, you have made the world a bearable place."
Previous winners of the accolade at the annual Music Industry Trusts Awards include Sir Elton John, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kylie Minogue.
