13 de Julho – HOJE é o dia internacional do Rock!

É uma boa data para justificar umas batucadas, certo?

A minha escolha para ajudar a comemorar é:

Um pouco sobre o dia mundial do Rock:

Em 13 de julho de 1985, decorreu o Live Aid, um espectáculo musical de cariz humanitário, que ocorreu em simultâneo em Londres (Reino Unido) e em Filadélfia (Estados Unidos) com o pretexto de tentar alertar para a problemática da fome na Etiópia.

Contou com a presença de artistas como The WhoStatus QuoLed ZeppelinDire StraitsMadonnaQueenJoan BaezDavid BowieBB KingMick JaggerSting,ScorpionsU2Paul McCartneyPhil Collins (que tocou em ambos os palcos), Eric Clapton e Black Sabbath.

Com transmissão em directo pela BBC para diversos países, avivou o debate internacional o crescente problema da miséria no continente africano.

20 anos depois, em 2005, o mesmo Bob Geldof organizou o Live 8, uma nova edição com uma maior estrutura e concertos em mais cidades espalhadas pelo mundo, cujo objetivo principal, era o de pressionar os líderes do G8 para o perdão da dívida externa dos países mais pobres e assim tentar ajudar a erradicar a miséria do mundo.

Desde então o dia 13 de julho passou a ser conhecido como Dia Mundial do Rock.
