Bob Geldof - Bob Geldof Gatecrashed Indian Wedding

Subscribe to Bob Geldof alerts

Bob Geldof went incognito as he crashed a couple's wedding celebration in India - and was stunned when a guest sang Boomtown Rats hit I Don'T Like Mondays.
The 60 year old was on a trip with his partner Jeanne Marine and they were so curious about a traditional marriage reception they overheard, they decided to join in the festivities.
None of the guests realised who Geldof was - but they definitely recognised his music.
Speaking on Bbc Breakfast, the star recalls, "How many times have I done I Don't Like Mondays - six million, but I'm not bored of it, seriously...
"I was in India a couple of years ago, myself and the missus (partner), and we were wandering down a street in Madras and next minute we heard this huge Indian wedding, this mega thing, so I said, 'Let's go in and have a look' and we went in and they brought us in and welcomed us and put us down beside the bride and groom, and they were doing karaoke - (they) hadn't a clue who we were!
"Next minute up comes I Don't Like Mondays and this guy leaped on the table and did this South Indian version of I Don't Like Mondays. That was fantastic."
