LIVE AID – 36th ANNIVERSARY
Live Aid was a benefit concert held on Saturday 13 July 1985, as well as an ongoing music-based fundraising initiative.
The original event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine.
Billed as the “global jukebox”, the event was held simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, UK, attended by about 72,000 people, and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, US, attended by exactly 89,484 people.
