Queen's performance at Live Aid at Wembley Stadium in 1985 is often regarded as Rock's greatest live performance of all time. Their set lasted 21 minutes and consisted of "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Radio Ga Ga", "Hammer to Fall", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "We Will Rock You", and "We Are the Champions". Mercury and May returned later on to perform a version of "Is This the World We Created?"

4 × DVD, The broadcast of the biggest benefit concert in history, organized by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for Ethiopian famine relief. This entry is for the compilation box set released in 2004.
The organization began with a concert event on October 9, 1999 with simultaneous activities meant to harness the Internet to raise money and awareness for the Jubilee 2000 campaign. Concerts took place at Wembley Stadium in London, Giants Stadium in New Jersey and the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The Wembley show was at capacity; the U.S. show suffered from very poor ticket sales. The concert was considered a flop by many observers, failing to raise nearly as much cash as Live Aid.
Like the three "Hands" films by Richard Serra (1968), the subject of "Color Aid" are fingers as actors of real time activity.

Bono and U2 will make the most of any size platform given them. Not everybody knew that when drummer Larry Mullen Jr. counted off Sunday Bloody Sunday at London's Wembley Stadium, but they sure did 17 minutes later, when the band left the stage. During a 12-minute rendition of Bad that incorporated bits of Lou Reed and Rolling Stones songs, Bono climbed down from the stage to help security guards extricate three girls from the crush of the crowd. That bit of improvisation cost the band the chance to play its lone U.S. Top 40 hit, Pride (In the Name of Love), but it vaulted the group to a new career stratus.
