Wow!

19 years ago today... Time goes by so fast!


And nothing has changed, really... Back then it was the famine, now it's HIV/AIDS - Africa is still the forgotten continent...

... and it puzzles me that rockstars, back then and now, has to do the job of politicians


I and to every single person on stage or infront of the stage at Wembley that day - you showed the rest of the world that a human life has value to God where ever it lives!



Now - bring on the pics!

Looking forward to seeing more pics Kitty!

I've just downloaded the "Bad"-video from that day (from Star) - The episode where Bono wants a girl brought on stage just made me laugh! It's like he's thinking "I want her on stage - that girl - THE GIRL you stupid... Argh, do I really have to do everything myself?!" and then jumps off the stage - wonderful moment!

Their best preformance ever I guess... But of course it would be... Freddie preforming infront of 2 billion people (or how many it was) - what more could he ask for? It was the perfect setting for him!

Excellent pictures. And to Merc's post.

I really would love to see this full concert sometime. That'd be awesome.

Thanks, Sherry Darling, and everyone else who has posted here - this concert was one of the MOST IMPORTANT DAYS in Rock music history, U2's history and many of our personal histories!

LiveAid was a TRANSFORMATIVE event - everyone who participated in it, whether in person or through the international media, will ALWAYS remember the TREMENDOUSLY POSITIVE IMPACT this concert had in our lives.

I watched the entire coverage of LiveAid from a hotel room in N.J., not far from where the U.S. site of LiveAid was taking place.

While the entire concert was exciting, it WAS Bono's "LEAP" OF FAITH that he took into the massive audience in Wembley to MAKE A PERSONAL CONNECTION that literally lept ME to my feet and transfixed me in front of the TV!

I think many of us who witnessed the miracle of LiveAid have gone on and turned the enthusiasm and excitement it generated in us into social activism in the belief that WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR GOOD IN THE WORLD.

I will never be able to adequately express my sincerest Love and Respect for Bob Geldof (the original) and for Bono for their consistent and unrelenting outspokenness for Africa's right to a Future of Peace, Prosperity and Justice.

They will ALWAYS be TWO men the VERY CLOSEST TO MY HEART!

AWE!!! Memories-I can't believe it has been that long either-and I was THERE!!! I remember that moment-when Bono jumped down fromt the stage-the whole stadium got kinda quite-could almost hear what they were all thinking-what IS Bono doing?? Every band or performance, only had 15 minutes! That was it!!! They had a rotating stage-so HAD to be off! And Bono finished with that gal! Awesome! And I will Always love that closing song of 'Do they Know It's Christmas'! the Whole Place sang that song with them-and That moment when Bono sings his part...'and the christmas belles that ring there..'he Shouted out the last part(cuz there was this Awesome LOud response from the Whole Stadium! )..'Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you..'!!!! The volume went higher-incrediable moment and one I will Never forget!!! LIVE-Aid July 13, 1985!!

Thanks Kitty!

What I wouldn't give to have been that girl - She was so lucky to be both at Live Aid AND at the same time get to dance with Bono! I guess it's a day she'll never forget...

I and to you! Thank you for showing the entire world that African lives are not just endless numbers in statistics over the worlds greatest problems!

You're very lucky to have been able to see that concert LIVE As I said above I would have given almost anything to be there, but beging age 2 years at that day made it rather impossible for me to be there...
