Gogol Bordello and Madonna Take Live Earth
With more than 2.7 million people in the UK alone watching the set, Eugene and Sergey performed a very special rendition of Madonna’s No.1 hit ‘La Isla Bonita’ mixed with the traditional Romany song, ‘Lela Pala Tute’, a live staple for Gogol Bordello, and performed in the Romany language.
Gogol Bordello’s brand new album ‘Super Taranta!’ is released on Tuesday, July 10th 2007. Following Live Earth, Eugene and Sergey rejoined Gogol Bordello in Dublin, Eire, for the Oxegen Festival on Sunday July, 8. The band will return to New York for a string of dates in the U.S. including two headlining performances at Irving Plaza on July 20 and July 21. In addition, the band is scheduled to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman Show on Aug. 1 before returning to the UK to perform at the Beautiful Days Festival on August 18 and the Reading & Leeds Festivals on August 24 & 25 respectively. - Watch the Live Earth Performance
