"Live Aid — that's why I went to Africa and that's how I've ended up doing what I do. Outside of the band and my family that's the most important thing I'm involved in." — Bono



by Martin

I was there ..

The funny thing was that there was a bus strike in Birmingham that day so I went by car with a couple of friends ..
We really went to see a Birmingham band called "Fashion" who were supporting them on the tour except in Birmingham . How bizarre it was . There were about 30 or so people in the whole place and I distinctly remember Bono jumping off the low stage ( it was a small club) and walking /strutting around the dancefloor saying "in Ireland we call this cabaret" . Several years later I saw them at the NEC in Brum where Bono referenced the Cedar room concert and said that there were 12 people there ... He also said "I hope those 12 people are here tonight" . Well I was but I didnt think he noticed me in amongst the other 12,000....

Enjoy....
