Usual Day

Chris at his 30th  Birthday  - 13th July 1985 - LIVE AID - Wembley Stadium - London
(YouTube videos down this page)

    Live Aid was a multi-venue rock music concert held on July 13, 1985.
The event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in order to raise funds
 for famine relief in Ethiopia.The main sites for the event were Wembley Stadium,
 London (attended by 72,000 people)  and JFK Stadium, Philadelphia
(attended by about 90,000 people), with some acts performing at other venues such
as Sydney and Moscow.  It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television
broadcasts of all time: an estimated 1.5 billion viewers,
across 100 countries, watched the live broadcast.   

Dire Straits were at the beginning of their Broters In Arms Tour
and made many gigs besides Live Aid. On 13th July they actually spent
 most of the day there  and as soon as the band had done their part
 of Live Aid they rushed back over to The Arena where they played their own show.
After that, there was a Live Aid party at Legends night-club in London.   

Here is some pictures of Chris blessed to play at his 30th Birthday in Live Aid -
