July 13: Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Ron Wood Live Aid 1985

Dylan Live aidLive Aid was a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985, and an ongoing music-based fundraising initiative. The original event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine. Billed as the “global jukebox”, the event was held simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, England, United Kingdom (attended by 72,000 people) and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (attended by about 100,000 people).

Bob Dylan played at 22:39 on the USA concert. There were some controversy about his remarks about spending some of the money on farmers in need in the US.
