Geldof To Publish Book On Travel Around Africa

SIR BOB GELDOF is set to publish a book on his travels in Africa.

The Irish rocker-turned-activist, who has spent decades campaigning on behalf of the continent, will release GELDOF IN AFRICA in June (05), to accompany a BBC series of the same name.

He says in a statement, "Africa has the lot - vast seas of sand, tropical jungles, equatorial rainforest.

"And within this immense continent more peoples, more languages, more cultures, more animals than anywhere else on our world. It is quite simply the most extraordinary, beautiful and luminous place on our planet."

As part of the book deal, an updated edition of Geldof's 1986 autobiography IS THAT IT? will be released in the autumn (05).

Geldof is part of British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR's COMMISSION FOR AFRICA, which recently published an ambitious Africa recovery plan.
