ROCKING FOR FREEDOM
|Venue||Wembley Stadium, London, UK|
|Date||11th June 1988|
Wembley Stadium on 11th June 1988 was the venue
for a unique gathering of musicians and performers from all over the world who
under the banner of Artists Against Apartheid paid tribute to Nelson Mandela for
his 70th Birthday. An audience estimated to be well over half a billion people
in some 63 countries participated in an event with a simple compelling message:
"Free Nelson Mandela". Dire Straits appeared as the closing act of that
unforgettable day with Eric Clapton on second guitar. Until today, it was
probably the most important and powerful concert of the Dire Straits history.
Amazing version of Brothers in arms! This recording is 100% complete,
including the announcer, Billy Conolly: "With a happy heart and a tear in
either eye: DIRE STRAITS! ". Taken from German radio, great sound quality.
