The Prince's Trust Rock Gala Concerts began the Eighties trend for charitable concerts in aid of good causes. The first 1982 Gala revived a spark that had been fired by George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in 1971, and turned it into a blazing modern tradition. This tradition reached its peak with the Live Aid Concerts to help relieve the Ethiopian famine of 1985.

What would you have given to be there? Perhaps you were - in that case, you'll know it was the concert hall line-up of your dreams.

Paul McCartney, Elton John, Mark Knopfler, Phil Collins, Sting, Rod Stewart, George Michael, Paul Young, Tina Turner, Midge Ure, Joan Armatrading, Big Country, Level 42, Howard Jones, Suzanne Vega - truly a concert to set before a future king.

Every one of these top artists plays songs from their greatest hits - "Get Back", "Sailing", "Money for Nothing", "In the Air Tonight", "Better Be Good to Me" and "Every time you go away" are just a few of the highlights.

TDK brings you this wonderful Gala Concert with sound and vision of the very highest quality, as usual giving you all the clarity and precision you could wish for...It's almost as good as being there.
