It's hard to believe, but it has been 37 years since Live Aid hit screens across the world to raise money for African famine relief.

The amazing production - which was simultaneously broadcast from both Wembley Stadium in London (attended by 72,000 people) and John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia (attended by about 100,000 people) - brought the world together and raised around $250 million for Africa.

And now the world could be about to experience the magic of Live Aid all over again as a huge Ukraine benefit concert has been announced.

The star-studded event is set to be held at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 24, with proceeds going to the victims of the ongoing Russian invasion.

According to reports, the likes of U2, The Rolling Stones, The Killers and Pink have been asked to perform at the gig.

Sir Paul McCartney, Adele, Florence and the Machine and Noel Gallagher are also likely to be approached.

Hopefully the concert will be broadcast on our shores!
