Andrew_Wild Remembering_Live_Aid Book Queen David_Bowie
On Saturday, 13 July 1985, a blazing, cloudless summer day, millions of people settled in front of the television.
It was just before noon in London, 7 am in Philadelphia, and around the world, it was time for Live Aid. Arranged in fewer than four months by Bob Geldof from a standing start to sixteen hours of music, seventy-plus artists and close to two hundred songs, these concerts mesmerised a huge global audience and raised millions for the starving in Ethiopia.
This book revisits every band and every song that made up the two era-defining Live Aid concerts.
All author royalties and publisher profits from the sale of this book will go to The Live Aid Trust.
