13.07.1985 – Održan ”Live Aid”

Live Aid su dva velika humanitarna koncerta za pomoć gladnoj djeci u Etiopiji koji su istovremeno održani 13. jula 1985. godine na Wembley Stadiumu u Londonu, Engleska (oko 82,000 gledalaca) i na “JFK stadiumu” Philadelphia, SAD (oko 99,000 gledalaca). Događaj su organizovali Bob Geldof i Midge Ure.

Live Aid je jedan od najvećih televizijskih događaja svih vremena prenošenih putem satelita kojeg je uživo pratilo preko 400,000,000 gledalaca u 60 zemalja Svijeta.

U projekat su bili uključeni i muzičari iz raznih zemalja svijeta.

Početak

Velikim uspjehom pređašnjeg projekta Geldof/Ure; okupljanjem brojnih Irskih i Britanskih muzičara u “Band Aid” i izdavanje njihovog singla “Do They Know It's Christmas?” (1984. godine) kojim je skupljen novac za gladnu djecu Etiopije, Geldof je organizovao koncerte “Live Aid” (koji je prozvan “Globalni Jukebox”) u namjeri da sakupi još više novca za gladnu djecu Etiopije, u čemu je i uspio, te mu je zbog toga Britanska kraljica dodijelila titulu viteza.

Koncerti

Koncert na Wembley Stadiumu počeo je u 12:00 sati po UTCu , odnosno u 07:00 po istočno Američkom vremenu i trajao je do 22:00 sata po UTCu , odnosno do 17:00 po istočno američkom vremenu.

Koncert na “JFK stadiumu” počeo je u 13:51 po UTCu, odnosno u 08:51 po istočno američkom vremenu i trajao je do 04:05 po UTCu odnosno do 23:05 po istočno američkom vremenu.

Bilo je predviđeno da David Bowie u Londonu otpjeva duet s Mickom Jaggerom u Philadelphiji ali bilo je nemoguće uskladiti i povezati oba koncerta, te su zbog toga Bowie i Jagger snimili zajedno muzički spot pjesme “Dancing in the Street” koji je izveden na koncertima s obe strane Atlantika.

Svaki od izvođača imao je na raspolaganju tačno određeno vrijeme kojeg su se morali pridržavati.

Phil Collins je nastupio na oba koncerta preletjevši okean Concordeom.
