Live Aid

July 13, 1985

Wham! joined Elton John to perform Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me at Live Aid in front of 72,000 people in Wembley Stadium. The event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for the Ethiopian famine disaster. Broadcast across the world via one of the largest satellite link-ups of all time, the concerts were seen by around 40% of the global population.
