Geldof's joy at Avatar profits
The former Boomtown Rats rocker is one of several stars who ploughed cash into a scheme offering tax-relief to film investors.
And his backing of James Cameron's 3-D epic has paid off - he will net an estimated £50,000 profit from the movie's success.
Geldof says, "Thank you very much for the good news. I haven't seen the film yet, but I will now that I own a brief second of it. I've got even more incentive to go see it."
