by Gabriella Landman and Melanie Fried | July 13, 2010 3:53 EDT

Twenty five years ago today (July 13), more than 50 artists across two continents united for the Live Aid benefit concerts, organized by UK musicians Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to aid famine relief efforts in Ethiopia. The event touched the hearts (and wallets) of fans across the globe, as an estimated audience of two billion tuned in to their radios and televisions to witness performances by the era's biggest acts and rock out for a cause.
In honor of the Live Aid concerts, we look back at 10 of the most memorable benefit concert performances in history, ranging from star-making sets from U2, Bruce Springsteen and Jimi Hendrix, to poignant, once-in-a-lifetime turns from Paul McCartney, Sting and Pink Floyd.

Madonna & Gogol Bordello, Live Earth
July 7, 2007

The 2007 Live Earth concert series aimed to raise awareness of environmental issues throughout the world, with performers as diverse as Foo Fighters, Black Eyed Peas, and Metallica on the bill.  At the London branch of the show, Madonna - who cut her benefit-concert chops at both 1985's Live Aid and 2005's Live 8 - brought out New York gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello for an unexpected collaboration. The group contributed energetic violin and guitar strumming to a vibrant rendition of Madge's '80s hit "La Isla Bonita," which wowed the crowd at London's Wembley Arena.
