Live Aid on this Day 1985 - Did You Tune in?

on

July 13th 1985 the first ever global simulcast takes place with a live performer live-up like the world has never seen. Literally every major performer from that era has a Live Aid story of their performance, or why they were not on the bill. The "Bohemian Rhpasody" film chronicles the QUEEN drama with Freddie Mercury returning for that legendary set. Wimbley Stadium packed in 72,00 fans and was followed by the JFK Stadium Philadelphia USA performances with just under 90K in attendance. This is the height of the "MTV Era" so poster boys and girls for that time like Sade, Simple Minds, Howard Jones and Adam Ant had sets at the Wimbley show. The big boys were there of course Black Sabbath performed with Ozzy Osbourne, U2, The Who and David Bowie all performed. Mick Jagger and Bowie were to perform a multi-continent live duet, but technical issues quashed that and we had to be satisfied with lip sync. Many don't remember that Live Aid was a true global event with bands like Loudness performing from Japan...loved that guitar tone Akira! Performances also came from Germany and Yugoslavoia. Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards closed the JFK evening.
