Although the phrase "give us your fucking money" has passed into folklore, Geldof has stated that it was never uttered. Later in the evening, following David Bowie's set, a video shot by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was shown to the audiences in London and Philadelphia, as well as on televisions around the world though neither US feed showed the film , showing starving and diseased Ethiopian children set to " Drive " by The Cars.
This would also be shown at the London Live 8 concert in Geldof had previously refused to allow the video to be shown, due to time constraints, and had only relented when Bowie offered to drop the song " Five Years " from his set as a trade-off.
Geldof mentioned during the concert that the Republic of Ireland gave the most donations per capita, despite being in the midst of a serious economic recession at the time.
Bob Dylan 's performance generated controversy after he said: "I hope that some of the money In his autobiography, Is That It?
Live Aid was about people losing their lives. There is a radical difference between losing your livelihood and losing your life. It did instigate Farm Aid, which was a good thing in itself, but it was a crass, stupid, and nationalistic thing to say.
Geldof was not happy about the Hooters being added as the opening band in Philadelphia. He felt pressured into it by Graham and local promoter Larry Magid.
Magid, promoting the concert through Electric Factory Concerts , argued that the band was popular in Philadelphia; their first major label album Nervous Night had been released almost three months earlier and had been a hit.
In an interview for Rolling Stone , Geldof asked: "Who the fuck are the Hooters? Adam Ant subsequently criticised the event and expressed regrets about playing it, saying, "I was asked by Sir Bob [sic] to promote this concert.
They had no idea they could sell it out. Then in Bob's book he said, 'Adam was over the hill so I let him have one number. Doing that show was the biggest fucking mistake in the world.
Knighthoods were made, Bono got it made, and it was a waste of fucking time. It was the end of rock 'n' roll.
But then so were the Boomtown Rats, and each represented a certain piece of pop history, so I agreed. I also thought that might entice him to encourage Sting, or perhaps all three of the Police.
BBC coverage co-host Andy Kershaw was heavily critical of the event in his autobiography No Off Switch , stating, "Musically, Live Aid was to be entirely predictable and boring.
As they were wheeled out — or rather bullied by Geldof into playing — it became clear that this was another parade of the same old rock aristocracy in a concert for Africa, organised by someone who, while advertising his concern for, and sympathy with, the continent didn't see fit to celebrate or dignify the place by including on the Live Aid bill a single African performer.
Led Zeppelin performed for the first time since the death of their drummer John Bonham in Two drummers filled in for Bonham: Phil Collins , who had played on singer Robert Plant 's first two solo albums, and Tony Thompson.
The performance was criticised for Plant's hoarse voice, Jimmy Page 's out-of-tune guitar, a lack of rehearsal, and poorly functioning monitors.
Plant described the performance as "a fucking atrocity for us. It made us look like loonies. Page later criticised Collins' performance, saying: "Robert told me Phil Collins wanted to play with us.
I told him that was all right if he knows the numbers. But at the end of the day, he didn't know anything.
We played ' Whole Lotta Love ', and he was just there bashing away cluelessly and grinning. I thought that was really a joke.
If I could have walked off, I would have. But then we'd all be talking about why Phil Collins walked off Live Aid — so I just stuck it out I turned up and I was a square peg in a round hole.
Robert was happy to see me, but Jimmy wasn't. Led Zeppelin have blocked broadcasts of the performance and withheld permission for it to be included on the DVD release.
But Collins was just the beginning of the bad. Go ahead. Watch and remember. It really was that terrible.
According to the BBC World Service , a certain proportion of the funds were siphoned off to buy arms for the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front.
The Band Aid Trust complained to the BBC Editorial Complaints Unit regarding the specific allegations in the BBC World Service documentary, and their complaint was upheld.
Although a professed admirer of Geldof's generosity and concern, American television commentator Bill O'Reilly was critical of the Live Aid's oversight of the use of the funds raised.
O'Reilly believed that charity organizations, operating in aid-receiving countries, should control donations, rather than "chaotic nations.
Tim Russert , in an interview on Meet the Press shortly after O'Reilly's comments, addressed these concerns to Bono.
Bono responded that corruption, not disease or famine, was the greatest threat to Africa, agreeing with the belief that foreign relief organisations should decide how the money is spent.
On the other hand, Bono said that it was better to spill some funds into nefarious quarters for the sake of those who needed it than to stifle aid because of possible theft.
Bruce Springsteen decided not to appear at Live Aid despite his huge global popularity in Geldof had originally scheduled the event for the 6th of July, but moved the date to the 13th especially to accommodate Springsteen.
Springsteen later expressed regret at turning down Geldof's invitation, stating that he "simply did not realise how big the whole thing was going to be"  and regretted not performing an acoustic set.
Michael Jackson declined to appear. His press agent, Norman Winter, released a statement at the time saying that Jackson was "working around the clock in the studio on a project that he's made a major commitment to," and consequently could not free up sufficient time to rehearse and perform at Live Aid.
Winter added, "Michael is just about living in the studio, rehearsing and recording. I know, what could be more major than Live Aid, but Michael couldn't turn his back on his responsibility to the people he's working with.
This affected employment for a lot of people. Prince also declined to appear in person, but sent a pre-taped video of an acoustic version of "4 the Tears in Your Eyes", which was played during the concert in Philadelphia.
Billy Joel , Boy George , Waylon Jennings , Kris Kristofferson , Tears for Fears , and Paul Simon were all included in initial promotional material for the Philadelphia concert, but did not appear.
Huey Lewis and the News were scheduled to play the Philadelphia leg, and were in some of the promotional material, but decided on 28 June to pull out over concerns that the money raised by relief efforts thus far had not been reaching those it was intended to help.
The prudent thing to do is to see how that money translates into food for the people before we do another one. He had himself recently returned from a trip to Africa to see how the money had so far been spent, and suggested that Lewis do the same.
Cliff Richard later stated he was unable to perform as he was committed to a gospel charity concert in Birmingham ,  although Geldof indicated he had no recollection of having asked Richard to appear.
Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears remarked that Bob Geldof "gave us so much gip for not turning up at Live Aid. He made us feel very guilty; all those millions of people dying, it was all our fault.
I felt terrible. I tell you, I know how Hitler must have felt. The single reached the Top 5 in the UK, even though the band's original version had been a hit only a year earlier.
A reunited Deep Purple were also due to appear from Switzerland via satellite, but pulled out after guitarist Ritchie Blackmore refused to take part.
Deep Purple minus Blackmore, who left the band in appeared at Geldof's Live 8 sequel 20 years later, performing at the Toronto leg of the event while Lennox appeared at the London and Edinburgh Live 8 concerts.
Bill Graham is said to have turned down Foreigner and Yes because there was no free space on the bill for them. British rock band Marillion , riding high in the UK charts that summer with their Misplaced Childhood album and " Kayleigh " single, missed out on an invitation to perform at Wembley because their manager had deemed it not worthwhile for singer Fish to participate in the "Do They Know It's Christmas?
Fish was quoted: "When it came to the bill for the concert we were passed over. UB40 lead singer Ali Campbell admitted that his band was also ignored by Geldof while planning the list of musical acts of the British leg of the event: "We weren't asked to do Live Aid because Uncle Bob didn't like our music much.
It was a great gig, but I thought it was a bit dodgy not having any black acts on the bill when it was raising money for Africa.
Thin Lizzy keyboard player Darren Wharton expressed regrets about the band not being asked to perform: "That was a tragic, tragic decision. It could've been and it should've been the turning point for Phil Lynott.
And I think that really did Phil in quite a lot, that we were never asked to play. I mean Phil, he had a few problems at the time, but at the end of the day, if he would've been asked to play Live Aid, that would've been a goal for him to clean himself up to do that gig.
We were all very upset of the fact that we weren't asked to do it because Phil knew Geldof and Midge Ure very well indeed. I was surprised that we weren't asked to do that.
I don't think Phil ever forgave Bob. Neil Peart , drummer of Canadian rock band Rush said: " Geddy was involved with the Northern Lights charity record here in Canada, although Rush weren't invited to participate in the Live Aid event—mainly because if you look at the guest list, it was very much an 'in-crowd' situation.
We were 'out' by then. We didn't refuse to take part because of any principles. Mind you, I wouldn't have been happy being part of this scenario.
Those stars should have shut up and just given over their money if they were genuine. I recall that Tears for Fears, who made a musical and artistic decision to pull out of the concert, were subsequently accused by Geldof of killing children in Africa—what a shockingly irresponsible and stupid attitude to take.
With less than a month of preparation time, Geldof secured the services of an impressive array of artists. Groups reuniting for the event included the Who , Black Sabbath , and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
Moreover, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reconvened in Philadelphia, supported by Phil Collins on drums. Collins, who had performed at Wembley earlier in the day, had crossed the Atlantic on the Concorde to become the only artist to appear on both Live Aid stages.
Perhaps the most noteworthy performances of the day belonged to a pair of arena rock giants— U2 and Queen —with each excelling in its respective idiom.
