The legendary rock bands and musicians, such as The Beatles, Queen, U2, and David Bowie, performed together on this important day which was broadcasted live around the world.
Live Aid concert was watched by more than 1.9 billion people from 110 nations. The event raised more than $125 million to relieve the ongoing famine in Africa.
Recently on Instagram, The Beatles icon Paul McCartney posted a photo of himself and Queen’s late legend Freddie Mercury while they were getting ready before the big Live Aid performance in front of millions. Apparently, the photo was taken just before their show at Wembley Stadium in London in 1985.

“On This Day in 1985, Paul performed at London’s Wembley Stadium for Live Aid! #LiveAid35“
