For one day in 1985, live music became larger than life. Bob Geldof and Midge Ure created ‘Live Aid’, The dual-venue concert in Wembley Stadium, London and JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine.
Tons of great artists went on both stages: The mighty Queen with an unforgettable performance, Sting, Elvis Costello, Nik Kershaw, Phil Collins, U2, Dire Straits, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Black Sabbath, Run DMC, The Beach Boys, Pretenders, Madonna, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger and many more.
But this is the time to remember the incredible performance of one Mr. David Bowie, the man that rocked about 2 billion people around the world with his performance. It was Bowie’s first performance since the end of the Serious Moonlight tour over a year and a half earlier. He followed the fantastic ‘Queen’ performance at London’s Wembley Stadium, and he made the world dance.
With his amazing band, Bowie played ’TVC15’, ‘Rebel Rebel’, ‘Modern Love’ and ‘Heroes’. It was a moment that changed the music world, and the David Bowie was victorious. Take the time and watch the entire performance today. We miss you, David.
