The greatest show on earth and a gargantuan humanitarian effort to help those starving in Africa, Live Aid took place on July 13th 1985 and brought together some of the biggest music stars of all time!
"Twenty years ago they not only played 'real good for free,' they took an issue that was nowhere on the agenda of the political world and placed it at the very top," says concert organizer Bob Geldof. "By buying the Live Aid DVD, that day continues far off into some distant, but hopefully better, future for all those people in whose name those great artists played."

Over 9 hours of footage, remixed into Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS!

I bought this shortly after it's release and was knocked out by it. I have just started playing it again, having brought it into work to lend to a colleague and i had forgotten just how moving it is, even after all this time. The opening section, basically a re-run of the news item by Michael Buerk brought tears to my eyes all over again, while the acts are phenomenal. For me, Queen and Dire Straits stand out in particular but, frankly, Bowie, Elton,Jagger & Tina Turner, it's all fabulous. Whether you remember the day or not, if you like the early 80's music, buy this straight away. Admittedly, I found the USA section not quite as good as the UK one, but, hey, who cares, it's worth it just to see Freddy Mercury with the Wembley crowd in the palm of his hand! I promise you won't be disappointed.

 A must have for any fans of early 80's music.

I loved this DVD. It brought back so many happy memories of the music which was around in the early 80's. The performances of Queen and U2 were amazing!
