    Born early 81, and I can just about remember watching Live Aid with my older brothers all day. They were big Kershaw fans so I was too. Do go and see him live if you can – fantastic show.

    To those of you saying this is playback – can you not tell that this is beset with technical problems? Live Aid had plenty of issues, but this was probably the worst affected performance. They are all looking closely at each other as they clearly can't hear a thing. Nik is a much better live singer than this normally. Still a great performance of this classic.

    one of the best 80s songs 🙂 Great voice and harmony vocals. Love that snare sound & groovy offbeat drumming and bass playing! Just timeless. Some cover bands play it faster and that destroys the whole song

    Looking at the overhead shot, the area around Wembley and indeed Wembley itself has changed so much

    The 80's sucked for fashion and hair. It REALLY sucked – look at the Mullets and those stupid parachute pants.. How did we survive that?? Thank god we had SOME good music. Nik was one of the bright spots..

    A masterpiece. Heard it for the first time 3/2/2016. Where was I in the 80's?
