I've been reading/hearing a lot about the Bandaid single, resurrected to raise funds to help stop the Ebola crisis. The main thing that bugs me is that certain people/artists are now criticising this act of charity saying that it puts Africa in a bad light, the lyrics are patronising etc etc.
Do many people really take that much notice of lyrics, or are most people buying it simply because they want to do their little bit to help and it's a reasonably catchy pop song? I mean, all of the haters that are criticising (the artists who have recorded a new version) weren't doing anything about raising money before Sir Bob got involved, were they?? At the end of the day, isn't the main point that money is being raised to help a cause?????
Putting it out there, I just think there's a lot of ungrateful nonsense going on here!
I went a good few years ago, with my mum, to the one in Manchester and it was incredible. Luckily, we had pretty good seats, but I could imagine if you were much further away than us, it'd be a bit pants. But, if Mrs P is a massive fan, then you can't really go wrong with tickets to the tour.
