As a big music fan, one of the moments I remember growing up was watching the Live Aid concert special. This is the special that aired in 1985 and showed us footage from shows in London and Philadelphia. It was all to benefit the hunger crisis in Africa. A who’s who of performers and actors were involved that day: Madonna, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Phil Collins, Queen and on and on. Isn’t it about time we had another world musical event like that? I am sure it could be another charity event of some kind for AIDS, global warming, hunger, human rights, etc. So who would I want on the bill for this Ultimate Fantasy Concert?
Annie Lennox (Eurythmics)
Up and Comers
Black Eyed Peas
What location or country would host it? What networks would show it? Would you want to be there live? The closest we have gotten to an event like this these days is the I Heart Radio Festival they have had in Las Vegas the last few years.
Just imagine the pairings you could have with this lineup! How about Annie Lennox leading a chorus of “Sisters Doing It for Themselves” with Madonna, Adele, Pink, Katy Perry and Rihanna? Or how about Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo, Prince and Bruno Mars doing an old James Brown song? I am sure it would be awesome TV and have us all talking about it years later. I can dream.
