Music fans are always talking about concerts they attended. Some were had-to-be-there events, like Woodstock, Altamont, or the US Festivals. And, of course, Live Aid, a concert so large, it took two continents to hold it.
Live Aid, held 33 years ago today, was a mega-concert designed by Bob Geldorf to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. The internationally televised event began in London's Wembley Stadium with acts by Phil Collins, Sting, U2, David Bowie, The Who, and Queen. It continued in Philadelphia's John F. Kennedy Stadium with acts by Run-DMC, Tom Petty, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, and Phil Collins (who flew across the Atlantic Ocean on the Concorde just to appear in both venues).
What music lover would want to miss that? You wouldn't have to if you were a time-traveling audiophile. In fact, you could attend this once-in-a-lifetime convert as many times as you liked.
Good riddance, hunger!
