It’s a knight to re­mem­ber for Den­mark

Albany Extra - - News - Saskia Adysti

World-fa­mous anti-poverty cam­paigner and mu­si­cian Bob Geldof KBE will visit Den­mark next year.

Geldof will take part in a mee­tand-greet at Den­mark Arts’ Artshouse, fol­lowed by an hour-long talk at Den­mark Civic Cen­tre on Satur­day, March 9.

Den­mark Arts artistic di­rec­tor Vivi­enne Robert­son said the mu­si­cian would share his own story.

“I’ve asked him to talk about his life be­cause I think that’s the most in­ter­est­ing for peo­ple,” she said.

“How he started as a mu­si­cian, his po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism, the Band Aid project and the work he has done in Africa.

“Peo­ple love real sto­ries and they would love to hear his life ex­pe­ri­ence.”

As a singer, writer, phi­lan­throphist and po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist, Geldof has per­formed char­ity work around the globe, earn­ing a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple.

The Boom­town Rats singer rose to promi­nence through his work or­gan­is­ing the Band Aid con­certs as well as Live Aid and Live 8 con­certs, to help ad­dress poverty and famine in Africa.

Tick­ets to both events in March will be avail­able in the next two weeks. For more in­for­ma­tion visit the Den­mark Arts web­site.
