Nelson Mandela Tribute Concert, Wembley Stadium, London
Robert Sandall, Rolling Stone, 31 May 1990
WHILE THE black south African leader Nelson Mandela was still in jail, his seventieth birthday, in June 1988, inspired the starriest gathering of rockers since Live Aid. And on April 16th, another concert honoring the same man in the same venue, London's Wembley Stadium, gave rise to some of rock & roll's most notable political partying.
