U2 participated in the Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium for Ethiopian famine relief on 13 July 1985.They played a 12-minute version of “Bad”, which was extended by snippets of Lou Reed’s “Satellite of Love” and “Walk on the Wild Side”, and The Rolling Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday” and “Sympathy for the Devil”. Bono leaped down off the stage to embrace and dance with a fan, which was captured on the TV broadcast sent around the world. The concert turned out to be a breakthrough moment for the band, showing a television audience of millions the personal connection that Bono could make with audiences [x]
