Live 8: Then and now
Some of the performers who will be playing the Live 8 concerts made a contribution to Live Aid in 1985. BBC News investigates on how much has their musical style, looks and fashion sense evolved over the last 20 years – and how have their careers fared.
When Madonna performed at the Philadelphia Live Aid concert in 1985, her musical career was beginning to take off on both sides of the Atlantic. In the UK, the singer was about to enjoy her first chart topper with Into The Groove, which would be the first of many.
In the 20 years which has elapsed since Live Aid, Madonna has remained a musical force to be reckoned with, reinventing herself on numerous occasions and remaining in the headlines. After taking to the stage in London’s Live 8 concert in Hyde Park, the musician will have a new album and another world tour to contemplate.
