Concert tour A concert tour is a series of concerts by an artist or group of artists in different cities, countries or locations. Often concert tours are named, to differentiate different tours by the same artist and associate a specific tour with a particular album or product for example Ariana Grande:
On the final night at Wembley, Saturday 22 Decemberan impromptu gathering of some of the other artists World music concert 2 Band Aid joined Culture Club on stage at the end of the concert for an encore of "Do They Know It's Christmas? George was so overcome by the occasion he told Geldof that they should consider organising a benefit concert.
Speaking to the UK music magazine Melody Maker at the beginning of JanuaryGeldof revealed his enthusiasm for George's idea, saying, "If George is organising it, you can tell him he can call me at any time and I'll do it.
It's a logical progression from the record, but the point is you don't just talk about it, you go ahead and do it! There's no point just 5, fans turning up at Wembley ; we need to have Wembley linked with Madison Square Gardens and the whole show to be televised worldwide.
It would be great for Duran to play three or four numbers at Wembley and then flick to Madison Square where Springsteen would be playing. While he's on, the Wembley stage could be made ready for the next British act like the Thompsons or whoever.
In that way lots of acts could be featured and the television rights, tickets and so on could raise a phenomenal amount of money. It's not an impossible idea, and certainly one worth exploiting.
Tony Vernainventor of instant replaywas able to secure John F. Kennedy Stadium through his friendship with Philadelphia Mayor Goode and was able to procure, through his connections with ABC 's prime time chief, John Hamlin, a three-hour prime time slot on the ABC Network and, in addition, was able to supplement the lengthy program through meetings that resulted in the addition of an ad-hoc network within the US, which covered 85 percent of TVs there.
Verna designed the needed satellite schematic and became the Executive Director as well as the Co-Executive Producer along with Hal Uplinger. Uplinger came up with the idea to produce a four-hour video edit of Live Aid to distribute to those countries without the World music concert 2 satellite equipment to rebroadcast the live feed.
Collaborative effort[ edit ] The concert began at It continued at John F. The UK's Wembley performances ended at Thus, the concert continued for just over 16 hours, but since many artists' performances were conducted simultaneously in Wembley and JFK, the total concert's length was much longer.
Problems of synchronisation meant the only remotely practical solution was to have one artist, likely Bowie at Wembley, mime along to prerecorded vocals broadcast as part of the live sound mix for Jagger's performance from Philadelphia.

Veteran music engineer David Richards Pink Floyd and Queen was brought in to create footage and sound mixes Jagger and Bowie could perform to in their respective venues.
The BBC would then have had to ensure those footage and sound mixes were in synch while also performing a live vision mix of the footage from both venues.
The combined footage would then have had to be bounced back by satellite to the various broadcasters around the world. Due to the time lag the signal would take several seconds to be broadcast twice across the Atlantic OceanRichards concluded there was no way for Jagger to hear or see Bowie's performance, meaning there could be no interaction between the artists, essentially defeating the whole point of the exercise.
On top of this, both artists objected to the idea of miming at what was perceived as a historic event. Instead, Jagger and Bowie worked with Richards to create a video clip of the song they would have performed, a cover of " Dancing in the Street ", which was shown on the screens of both stadiums and broadcast as part of many TV networks coverage.
Each of the two main parts of the concert ended with their particular continental all-star anti-hunger anthems, with Band Aid 's " Do They Know It's Christmas? McCartney agreed to perform and has said it was "the management" — his children — who persuaded him to take part.
In the event, he was the last performer aside from the Band Aid finale to take to the stage and one of the few to be beset by technical difficulties; his microphone failed for the first two minutes of his piano performance of " Let It Be ", making it difficult for television viewers and impossible for those in the stadium to hear him.
He later joked by saying he had thought about changing the lyrics to "There will be some feedback, let it be".
Aside from his own set at both venues, he also played the drums for Eric Claptonand played with the reuniting surviving members of Led Zeppelin at JFK. On the Concorde flight, Collins encountered actress and singer Cherwho was unaware of the concerts. Upon reaching the US, she attended the Philadelphia concert and can be seen performing as part of the concert's " We Are the World " finale.
Unfortunately, in the rush to set up the transatlantic feeds, the sound feed from Philadelphia was sent to London via transatlantic cable, while the video feed was via satellite, which meant a lack of synchronisation on British television receivers.
The BBC, however, did supply a 'clean feed' to various television channels in Europe. An entirely separate and simultaneous US feed was provided for cable viewers by MTVwhose broadcast was presented in stereo, and accessible as such for those with stereo televisions.
At the time, before Multichannel television sound was enacted nationwide, very few televisions reproduced stereo signals and few television stations were able to broadcast in stereo.
As a result, many songs were omitted due to the commercial breaks, as these songs were played during these slots. InVH1 and MuchMusic aired a re-edited ten-hour re-broadcast of the concert for its 10th Anniversary. The Live Aid concert in London was also the first time that the BBC outside broadcast sound equipment had been used for an event of such scale.
In stark contrast to the mirrored sound systems commonly used by the rock band touring engineers, with two 40—48 channel mixing consoles at the Front of houseand another pair for monitors, the BBC sound engineers had to use multiple 12 channel desks.
Some credit this as the point where the mainstream entertainment industry realised that the rock concert industry had overtaken them in technical expertise.Buy tickets for upcoming concerts, music festivals and more of your favorite artist touring.
