I remember watching U2 perform at Live Aid thirty years ago today. I saw their concert in Hartford, CT a few months earlier but I was a new fan then. When I saw them perform “Bad” at Live Aid it catapulted them in my mind to a new level. This was a band that was going to last for the ages. When Bono reached out to the crowd, it was like nothing I had ever seen before. This is a singer who doesn’t just touch an audience, they become one.
