U2 play Live Aid concert, Wembley Stadium, London.

Jack Nicholson introduced the band to a packed Wembley Stadium. Earlier in the year, Bono and Adam had taken part in recording the single 'Feed The World' all in support of raising funds for famine relief in Ethiopia.

U2's performance didn't go according to plan. 'We didn't do the hits because I'd gone AWOL'.The band played a 14-minute rendition of "Bad", during which Bono jumped off the stage to join the crowd and dance with a girl. Originally they were supposed to play 'Sunday Bloody Sunday', 'Bad' and 'Pride (In The Name of Love)' but had to drop Pride from the set due to time constraints.
