Live Aid was a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985. The 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, England, United Kingdom (attended by 72,000 people) and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (attended by about 100,000 people).
On the same day, concerts inspired by the initiative happened in other countries, such as Australia and Germany. It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television broadcasts of all time: an estimated global audience of 1.9 billion, across 150 nations, watched the live broadcast.

A benefit concert in memory of the lead singer of Queen held at Wembley Stadium on 20th April 1992. Mercury died of AIDS and so some of the proceeds of this concert went to AIDS research.

This global broadcast broke new ground in international entertainment. It took 10 of the world's most popular stars and cast them in unique duets, trios and quartets to sing the greatest hits of the previous 40 years. The show went backwards in time from 1996 to 1956 choosing one song per year as it went. Each year was then introduced by iconic images of the year of the song.
This classic concert was held at Wembley Stadium in London in front of 80,000 people. A top session band back these vocalists covering songs by Bob Marley, Led Zep, Elvis, Aretha, Rolling Stones, Dylan and more.

A documentary and concert film that contained selections from the September 1979 Madison Square Garden concerts by the MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) collective with Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt and John Hall being the key organizers of the event and guiding forces behind the film.
Also included were scenes of the organizers getting the event together, expounding upon the dangers of nuclear power and staging a rally at Battery Park in New York City.
This was the first official appearance of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band's much ballyhooed live act on film and many critics hailed their performances as the best in the documentary.
