Almost 26 years have passed, and Bob Geldof is still in a shooting mood.
This time, he fired verbal bullets at online auction giant eBay, whose U.K. subsidiary was hosting auctions for tickets to the upcoming Live 8 concerts that Geldof organized to fight poverty in Africa.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday afternoon that eBay no longer will host auctions for the tickets: 'Managing director Doug McCallum said the company would take the tickets off its auction site, although the company said reselling charity concert tickets was not illegal in Britain. 'We've listened carefully to our customers,' McCallum told Britain's ITV television. 'Overwhelmingly the voice is that they would like us to take down the listing.''"
