@steviebee,…All opinions are equally important.
Though,.this with Live Aid cannot be compared to an ordinary big,big music-festival.
This is on a completely different level.
Live Aid holds the record for the most watched television special in history.
On the same day…
Concerts inspired by the initiative,happened in other countries,.such as the
It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television broadcasts of all time;
An estimated audience of
-1.9 billion, across…
-150 nations,.watched the live broadcast,.nearly 40% of the world population.
London and Philadelphia were the sites for the main concerts…
The broadcast focused on the concerts at Wembley Stadium in England,72 000 people.
J.F.K. Stadium in Philadelphia,100 000 people.
Several groups who had not performed together in years,reunited for the concert. Among them were…
-Crosby Stills Nash & Young.
-Led Zeppelin (with Phil Collins and Tony Thompson filling in for the late John Bonham) and the original Ozzy Osbourne.
-Tony Lommi,.Geezer Butler and Bill Ward line up of Black Sabbath.
-John Taylor and Andy Taylor performed not only with Duran Duran.
They also performed earlier that day with their side project…Power Station.
-Neil Young,.who also performed that day doing a solo set etc,etc.
In 1986,.Bob Geldof would be knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his efforts.
So now it’s Sir Bob Geldof.
Bob Geldof was nominated for Alfred Nobel’s Peace-Prize.
So Live Aid,.was a little bigger than a major festival .
