Live Nation donates $50,000 to 'No on Prop 8'

The concert promoter of Madonna has donated $50,000 to fight a ban on gay marriage in California.
Bosses at Live Nation gave the sum of money to help fight the Proposition 8 bill - a high-level state vote in the upcoming November election to make same-sex marriages constitutionally illegal in California - because they feel it takes away individual rights.
A spokesperson for the company says, 'Live Nation has always offered equal rights and benefits to our employees' same-sex partners. It is in this spirit that we have made the decision to donate $50,000 to the No on Prop. 8 campaign.'
Gay unions were legalised in the state in May, which led to a spate of celebrity weddings including TV host Ellen DeGeneres' marriage to longtime partner Portia de Rossi in August.
Stars including Brad Pitt and Steven Spielberg have donated money to the fight against the bill.
