Mick Brown on Queen, David Bowie and U2 at Live Aid 1985

“The story of Live Aid is that tens of thousands of people have been saved and it was an extraordinary, unique and amazingly positive thing to happen. In a way, it was humanity at its finest.”

Mick Brown, a writer for The Telegraph Magazine, attended the 1985 Live Aid concert as a reporter. The concert, conducted by Bob Geldof, became one of the most monumental stage shows in history and raised over £150m for famine relief.

In this video, Mick Brown gives a first-hand account of the extraordinary concert – Queen’s famous Bohemian Rhapsody Perfomance; The Beach Boys’ Good mood; Bono’s slow dance with a fan; and David Bowie’s sharp reminder that the performance benefited the starving in Ethiopia. Enjoy Mick’s remarkable memories alongside video highlights of the day’s big performances.

This is the fifth installment in a video and podcast series featuring the stories of Telegraph journalists who witnessed the story.
