Notes

SIMPLE MINDS, PETER GABRIEL & DIRE STRAITS
The Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute Concert
Westwood One Superstars Concert Series # CO 89-12
Live at Wembley Stadium, London, England
11 June 1988
Original Airdate: ?? June 1989
1989 pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP

The show is derived from the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute Concert which occurred on 11 June 1988 at London’s Wembley Stadium, and features Simple Minds, Peter Gabriel, Dire Straits and Eric Clapton. (Gabriel only performs one song, Biko, at the end of the Simple Minds set.) A note about Cue Sheets and the broadcast date: There were no Cue Sheets with this set when I purchased it, therefore I cannot say for certain when this show originally aired. This is not a stereo simulcast of the performance from that day, but rather a repackaged, trimmed down version aired at a later date. Having said that, research has revealed that this particular show was broadcast sometime in June of 1989, one year after the original concert. If I had to guess, I’d say it probably aired around the anniversary date of 11 June, but I cannot be sure. I tried in vain to find someone who has the original Cue Sheets, but received no response. If anyone reading this has the original Cue Sheets, please upload in the image section. Lastly, Eric Clapton performed alongside his friend Mark Knopfler (in the "inside left" position) during the Dire Straits set, because the regular guitar player (Jack Sonni at that time) was at home with his wife and newborn girls. Knopfler mentions this during the middle section of Walk Of Life about the 3:35 mark. In addition, Clapton performed one of his solo classics as well in Wonderful Tonight. Brothers In Arms was performed that day, but is not included on this LP set for reasons unknown.

There is another version of this concert featuring some of the Simple Minds set, along with tracks by Sting and the Eurythmics, which can be found on Various - Westwood One Superstars Concert Series # CO 88-21.
