Live Aid - 13 July 1985

The event was organized by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine.

On the same day, concerts inspired by the initiative happened in other countries, such as Australia, America and Germany. It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television broadcasts of all time: an estimated global audience of 1.9 billion, across 150 nations, watched the live broadcast.

Also, if you’ve not already you should watch Queens performance at Live Aid here. Its amazing.

 - I wish that I was alive in the 80’s just so that I could have seen this.
