Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson has found a way to calm his nerves at next weekend's (02JUL05) LIVE 8 concert in Philadelphia - he refuses to watch any of the other acts before he hits the stage.

The British singer, who is on the bill alongside Eminem, 50 CENT and Justin Timberlake, believes watching the other artists performing at the international charity event will only increase his fear of singing to an audience of millions.

Wilson, whose band are the only UK act on the American leg of Live 8, says, "I don't want to see the stage until I walk on it.

"If I see a band on it, that's when I get nervous and start throwing-up."
