Peaches Geldof investigates the British teenage experience, she meets youngsters from around the country and then argues that their outrageous behavior should be tolerated as an important stage of their development.
Marked the first performance by the "full" lineup of Pink Floyd (Roger Waters, David Gilmour (I)', 'Nick Mason', and 'Richard Wright (II)' , but still minus Syd Barrett, of course) since their acrimonious break up in 1985, the breakup itself was four years after their last public performance, in 1981. With Rick Wright's death in 2008, it is also the final time the four men performed together. See more »
There was a real sense of occasion about it, that it might have an influence on world poverty.
Now watching the DVDs some of that sense of occasion has gone. Although there are still children dying every few seconds and the haunting video to Annie Lenox's 'Why?' still affects as it should.
What disappointed me most was the removal of some tracks, presumably due to shortage of time. I was particularly looking forward to seeing Keane's 'Bedshaped' again and found it was one of those that had been left out.
The sound quality however is excellent through my hifi speakers but not all the bands performed that well on the day. For me Pete Doherty and Black Eyed Peas were a little bit poor.
Overall it is still an excellent concert to watch, the variety of artists and the reason they were all there make it unique...apart from Live Aid of course
