Live Aid

Live Aid je bil dvojni dobrodelni rock koncert za pomoč žrtvam lakote v Etiopiji, ki sta ga organizirala Bob Geldof in Midge Ure. Koncert je 13. julija 1985 sočasno potekal na starem stadionu Wembley, London (72,000 ljudi) in na stadionu John F. Kennedy, Filadelfija (100,000 ljudi). Gre za enega največjih televizijskih prenosov v zgodovini, katerega je režiral Vincent Scarza, saj ga je preko satelita, katerega slika je šla v več kot 150 držav po vsem svetu, skupaj spremljalo okrog 1,9 milijarde ljudi, oziroma skoraj 40% takratnega svetovnega prebivalstva.[1][2]

Koncert v Londonu je potekal od 13:00 do 23:00 ure po slovenskem času, v Filadelfiji pa od 14:51 do 05:05 ure naslednjega dne po slovenskem času. Svet je lahko ta dogodek spremljal 16 ur skupaj nepretrgoma.

24 minutni nastop britanske skupine Queen, še posebej "Radio Ga Ga" in "We Will Rock You", velja za vrhunec tega dobrodelnega dogodka in enega najbolj kultnih performansov v zgodovini glasbe.

Po vzoru Live Aid so se na isti dan odvijali koncerti tudi v nekaterih drugih državah, kot so Sovjetska zveza, Kanada, Japonska, Jugoslavija, Avstrija, Avstralija in Zahodna Nemčija.


Časovno je bila Slovenija (GMT+02:00) eno uro pred Londonom (GMT+01:00) in šest ur pred Filadelfijo (GMT-04:00).
