Throwback Thursday – LIVE AID, 30 Years Ago This Week!

Posted on July 29, 2015

It was 30 years ago that the world experienced Live Aid.  Bob Geldof and Midge Ure organized this amazing event to promote the relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine.  This event was held simultaneously in London at Wembley Stadium and at Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia.  On the same day, events took place based on the same initiative in several other places all over the globe.  It reached an audience of over 1.9 billion people across 150 nations.  Pretty amazing for everyone who thinks you can’t possibly connect that many people without Facebook or Twitter!  Here are a few videos from the shows.  Enjoy!
