Dear friends who are reading, to follow are our memories, ideas and hints on the three biggest charity televised events organized so far, through lists and run downs..
The most watched moments on the official Live Aid DVD:
Disc 1: Ultravox, Spandau Ballet, From Sade on…
Disc 2: Dire Straits, From Queen to David Bowie, the Who and Elton John
Disc 3: from Madonna to Band Aid finale, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, The Cars, from Thompson Twins to DD
Disc 4: all last numbers of the concert. Off the “Extras”: INXS, Run DMS, David Bowie & Mick Jagger
The most memorable moments of Live 8:
Pet Shop Boys
All of the Italian artists at the Circus Maximus, Rome for the first time taking part in a global event
Sir Bob Geldof
The rappers, by now ruling the charts
Lastly, the memory, which overshadows a little the show was the critics on the absence of African artists and performers on the bill of an event set up in aid of Africa
The most watched moments of Live Earth:
Queen and Paul Rodgers
The ever relevant rappers
What are the reasons why the concerts all worked well?
Big names involved on the bill
Big venues and the venues were located in places easy to reach.
The urgency of the causes
Communication, so the possibility of being informed about the event and being involved in
Freedom to choose whether to attend or to watch
A good concert ticket price.
What are the reasons why should at any time necessary a big charity global music event be held, if economically possible?
Whenever politicians and/or our leaders fail to act
Whenever there is no time to lose
Whenever the effects of the impact of the promoted cause on the global community have to be enormous
Whenever a military solution is the wrong one
