Live 8 London is being held in Hyde Park. Apparently the biggest event in Hyde Park’s history, I think around 150,000 tickets were issued.
Now take a look at the Parkway, Philadelphia where they’re holding Live 8 Philadelphia. Apparently, the stage is on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art – where Rocky ran up and cheered in that training montage. That image is on maximum zoom, so it looks smaller than Hyde Park. Except it’s a total free-for-all – you literally just show up – and they’re expecting something like two million spectators.
So if Hyde Park is bigger than the Parkway (as it would appear), why is there less room for spectators? Not fair! *pout*
