Controlling his business empire from the beach.

20-08-2013
Bob Geldof has left Majorca after enjoying an extensive holiday on the Island with his children, Fifi, Peaches, Pixie and his adopted daughter Tiger Lily, the orphaned daughter of Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence. Geldof spent his holiday relaxing with his family, and was pictured attending the Van Morrisson concert held at Michael Douglas' cultural centre Costa Nord, where he was joined by Douglas himself. Tiger Lily Hutchence, who Geldof recently took to Disneyland Paris to celebrate her birthday, was adopted by Geldof following the death of her mother from a drug overdose last year. She now lives with Geldof, his girlfriend Jeanne Marine and her step sisters. He describes Tiger as “absolutely adorable” and adds “She is also beautiful, completely cute and already a seriously good dancer.” Geldof has recently been discussing third world debt and the Aids crisis with world leaders at the G8 summit in Genoa, once again heading world causes - a theme which has threaded through his life since the Live Aid concert he organised to raise money for famine stricken Ethiopia. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1953, Geldof was part of The Boomtown Rats of “Don't Like Monday” fame, one of the first music groups to emerge during the Punk explosion of 1976/77. After a series of hits, the group disbanded but Geldof remained in the spotlight, and after appearing in Pink Floyd's The Wall, turned his attention to Ethiopia and organised the celebrated Band Aid record “Do They Know It's Christmas”, which sold over 3 million copies and raised millions for famine relief. It was this record which inspired the Live Aid concert, seen by over 1'000'000'000 people in a worldwide television audience. After this monumentus event, Geldof continued to make solo music, but has since become involved in media and now runs a successful internet based travel company; which explains why he spent most of the time on his mobile phone.
