Does anyone know if there is any video footage of this concert
available? I went with three friends and remember it as being fabulous!
Artists which stood out for me were George Michael, Paul McCartney and
Phil Collins. My recollection is that we were standing up and dancing
all night and it was a truly memorable evening. I guess compared to
today's slick and technically brilliant concerts it would seem a bit
dated but at the time it was amazing!
We had seats way up high but I remember the great performers who were obviously 'top of the pops' at the time. I would love to find any coverage of the event if indeed any exists. Can anyone out there help?
I also seem to remember going onto a night club on the Thames called Barbarellas? Does anyone know if this is still in existence?
Thanks in anticipation!

The Prince's Trust celebrated it's 10th anniversary in 1986 with a concert
at Wembley Arena attended by the then Prince and Princess of Wales. It is
more of a curiosity concert now in light of the fact that most of the
and groups on show have either split up, moved on, or have shuffled off
planet (Stuart Adamson committed suicide years later)
Inevitably, the performances are some of the big names at the time, for
example, Suzanne Vega and Level 42 were top ten in England and Mark
was riding high post-BROTHERS IN ARMS with Dire Straits. Tina Turner and
Eric Clapton duetted on TEARING US APART (from Clapton's 1986 album
George Michael and Paul Young sang EVERYTIME YOU GO AWAY (simply because
Michael didn't know any other song) and the concert culminates in Paul
McCartney singing LONG TALL SALLY, I SAW HER STANDING THERE and GET BACK
with Tina Turner.
Professionally done with some good music to boot, THE PRINCES TRUST BIRTHDAY PARTY is more of interest now to fans of the decade.
