The answer is Live Aid. "13th July 1985... Live Aid. Midge Ure and Bob Geldof got together and created an historic moment that epitomised the 1980?s... 72 acts with countless stars across two countries beamed all over the world." BBC Get Writing: Shout Pt II http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/getwriting/A2764226 "Live Aid... staged in London and Philadelphia on Saturday 13 July 1985, was watched on television by over 1.5 billion people around the world. These concerts led to pledged donations and royalties of over $140 million towards the devastating famine in Africa." INXS: INXS to appear on historic Live Aid DVD http://www.inxs.com/index.php?section=news&page=home&date=1094527031 I hope this is precisely what you need to know.
