Royal Albert Hall, London (England) 15-Sep-1997
Britain's rock stars came together in a one-off supergroup to raise more than $1 million for the volcano-ravaged Caribbean island of Montserrat. The gig was billed as the biggest charity concert of the decade with all the stars singing for free to help the once idyllic island. Forty countries, from Japan to the United States, have bought the concert which is also being sold on pay television in Britain.
