Bob Geldof says Band Aid 30 single made 'one million quid' in five minutes
Bob Geldof has revealed that the new Band Aid single made £1 million after only five minutes on sale.
The tune went on sale digitally today (November 17) and Geldof, who organised the single alongside Midge Ure, told BBC Radio 4 that it is going very well.
He said: "From what we've seen from iTunes it's gone bonkers. Within four or five minutes we had a million quid."
A physical version of the single meanwhile will be released in about three weeks.
The first Band Aid single was released 30 years ago to aid anti-poverty efforts in Africa.
