 This 80s concert tee is from the Live Aid worldwide super concert that took place on July 13, 1985, as a relief effort to raise money for Ethiopia's famine. The concert took place simultaneously at Wembley Stadium in London, and JFK Stadium, in Philadelphia. London received over 70,000 attendees while Philadelphia had around 100,000.

Performances at Wembley included Elvis Costello, Status Quo, Sade, Sting, Phil Collins, Paul Young, U2, Queen, David Bowie, The Who, Elton John, and Adam Ant. Meanwhile, Philadelphia's concert had no shortage of major performances, including Black Sabbath, Run DMC, The Beach Boys, Santana, Pretenders, Madonna, Thompson Twins, Led Zeppelin, Duran Duran, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, and Bob Dylan, to name a few. 

Organized by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, the concert raised $127 million in famine relief, and the publicity it garnered lead to an increase in charity efforts among Western Nations.

The back features sponsors of the concert, including AT&T, Chevrolet, Kodak, and Pepsi, and it reads "This shirt saves lives."
