This show features Live Aid, the biggest benefit concert in history. Taking place simultaneously in two seperate stadiums in the USA and the UK, many of the top contemporary rock music acts play many of their most popular songs to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. In addition, short films illustrating the crisis in Africa are run with the appeal for aid. Written by

Did You Know?
Organizer Bob Geldof
has been quoted as saying that he felt Queen had the best sound, the best show of the entire event. Geldof was in the booth at Wembley helping to organize the chaos, and happened to pause for a moment. He overheard the music, and realized that it was noticeably better than it had been all day (technical problems were rampant). He asked, "Who is that?" and the answer was "Queen". He stopped working for several minutes, captivated by the show. See more
