Live Aid 1985 took place on 13 July 1985. It was held in Wembley Stadium in London, and in John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia. The concert was shown in 150 different nations. 40% of the world population was watching it, which ment around 1.9 billion people. The concert in London last from mid day until 10PM. In Philadelphia it lasted from 9AM until 11PM. This means that there was a total of 24 hours of live music that day.
