The next Live Aid

Before Christmas Live Aid came out on DVD. Eric asked me why have no one done something like Live Aid since the 80s. Farm Aid and Comic Relief were all started as a spin off of Live Aid, but there has not been anything like this.

I guessed it was because the 90s was a jaded decade. In terms of Concerts the 90s were about Lollapalooza, Lilith Fair, and OzzFest. The 90's were not about saving the world. The 90s were about saving ourselves.

Today I see on the BBC news website that a group in might stage a Live Aid time even for tsunami relief. It looks like Live Aid might make a comeback 20 years after the first. Someone get Bob Geldof on the phone.
