Denmark Arts present a night with Bob Geldof a Denmark Arts Civic Centre and are offering WAM Members a special Discount!

Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his work in organising Band Aid and other concerts that raised millions of dollars for starving people in Africa, Irish rock star, author and political activist Bob Geldof rose to prominence as lead singer of the Irish rock band The Boomtown Rats with number one hits like ‘Rat Trap’ and ‘I don’t like Mondays’ from the early 1970s.

Geldof is widely recognised for his activism, especially anti-poverty efforts concerning Africa with Band Aid  and one of the best selling singles of all times ‘Do they know it’s Christmas time’ and Live Aid.  Geldof currently serves as an adviser to the ONE Campaign, founded by fellow Irishman Bono, and is a member of the Africa Progress Panel (APP), a group of ten distinguished individuals who advocate at the highest levels for equitable and sustainable development in Africa. A single father, Geldof has also been outspoken for the fathers’ rights movement.

Bob Geldof is a recipient of the Man of Peace title which recognises individuals who have made “an outstanding contribution to international social justice and peace”, among numerous other awards and nominations. In 2005 he received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
