The Old Vic kicks off the new year with a world premiere of a brand new musical inspired by the iconic 1985 Live Aid concert.

Featuring the songs of Bob Dylan, David Bowie, The Who, U2, Queen, The Police, Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Pretenders, Diana Ross, Sade and many more, this is the story of the Live Aid movement and the people united by it.

Political unrest, social revolution, boom and bust. In a decade of neon and noise, one moment made the world stand still and brought 1.5 billion people together – and they all have a story to tell about ‘the day rock ‘n’ roll changed the world’.

Written by John O’Farrell (Mrs Doubtfire, Something Rotten) and directed by Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, The Little Big Things), the musical has a 26-strong cast. Remaining faithful to the Live Aid vision, 10% from the sale of all tickets will be donated directly to The Band Aid Charitable Trust.
