After having a successful career with the Irish rock/punk outfit the Boomtown Rats Geldof launched his solo career. In 1984 he penned the hit " Do They Know Its Christmas?" with Midge Ure. The song remains one of the biggest selling of all time and formed the basis for the Live Aid concerts, organised by Geldof himself. As well as continuing to focus on the plight of the third world, Geldof has proven himself a successful businessman and self publicist

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the charismatic Bob Geldof, lead singer of the Boomtown Rats pop group, wearing a headband during an electrifying concert in Tokyo, Japan in May 1980. Known for his energetic performances and rebellious spirit, Geldof's influence on the music scene is undeniable. After achieving great success with the Boomtown Rats, Geldof embarked on a solo career that further showcased his talent and versatility. However, it was in 1984 when he co-wrote the iconic hit "Do They Know It's Christmas?" with Midge Ure that he truly left an indelible mark on music history. This heartfelt song became one of the best-selling singles ever recorded and served as inspiration for the monumental Live Aid concerts organized by Geldof himself. Beyond his musical endeavors, Geldof has also proven to be a shrewd businessman and self-publicist. While continuing to raise awareness about global issues affecting developing nations, he has successfully ventured into various other fields. Photographer Peter Stone expertly captures this moment in time when Bob Geldof was at the peak of his fame and influence. This print serves as a testament to both Geldof's enduring legacy as an entertainment icon and Stone's ability to capture raw emotion through his lens. A true treasure from Memory Lane Prints that transports us back to the vibrant music scene of the 1980s.
