Live Aid: 25 Years Ago Today

Today is the 25th anniversary of the ground-breaking charity concert Live Aid. Organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to aid famine relief in Ethopia, the concert took place in London's Wembley Stadium and Philadelphia's JFK Stadium.

Relative newcomer Madonna was introduced onto the stage by Bette Midler saying: 'A woman who pulled herself up by her bra-straps....she's Madonna!'

Madonna, wearing a more modest outfit than usual, said 'I ain't taking sh*t off today!' - in reference to the recent publication of some nude pictures in Penthouse and Playboy. She sang Holiday, Into The Groove and Love Makes the World Go Round - and later also joined The Thompson Twins on stage during a performance of Revolution.
