Live AID 1985


In 1985 werd er in Londen en Philladelphia een groot evenement georganiseerd voor de mensen in Afrika.

De organisator van dit evenement Bob Geldof wilde iets doen aan de verschrikkelijke omstandigheden die de mensen in Afrika doormaakten.

In 1985 was Live AID geboren met alle grote artiesten zoals Led Zeppelin, U2, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Neil Young and Queen verspreid over twee lokaties in Londen en Phillidelphia (US).

Na 19 jaar komt er hier een DVD van die op 10 november uitkomt.

Earlier this year, the Band Aid Trust agreed to auction the global rights for the concerts for the first time, after pirated copies were found for sale on the Internet.
Warner Vision International won the bidding and has set a Nov. 10 release date for a four-disc DVD package. The iconic Live Aid, held at London’s Wembley and Philadelphia’s JFK Stadium, raised more than $70 million for famine relief in Africa.

Among the acts that performed were a reunited Led Zeppelin, U2, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Neil Young and Queen. The DVDs will feature a documentary, “Food, Trucks & Rock’n’Roll,” plus performances from related Live Aid events around the world.
“Twenty years ago they not only played ‘real good for free,’ they took an issue that was nowhere on the agenda of the political world and placed it at the very top,” says concert organizer Bob Geldof.

“By buying the Live Aid DVD, that day continues far off into some distant but hopefully better future for all those people in whose name those great artists played.”)
