Bob Geldof says he finally understands what life's all about - love.

The singer and campaigner, who was married to the late Paula Yates, has been in a long relationship with French actress girlfriend Jeanne Marine.

He said: "At 19, I didn't understand that without the existence of love, the human condition is painfully absurd and futile.

"I think that's understood by most people, but I'd never got it 'til recently, how critical it is to be in love and to be loved."

"It surprises me as I race to 60, that things are OK. Who would've expected that?

Bob begins a UK tour in September 2011.
