Playlist Description

The Prince's Trust was a charity organization formed by the Prince of Wales in 1976 after he completed his duty in the Royal Navy. Now in its 32nd year, the Trust has become the U.K.'s leading youth charity, offering a range of opportunities including training, personal development, business start-up support, mentoring, and advice. The first of the charity concerts began in 1982 and was headlined by Status Quo. After its success, several other mainstream superstars jumped on board, and between 1983 and 1987 the concerts featured such artists as George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Pete Townshend, Joan Armatrading, Madness, Kate Bush, and Phil Collins. This performance from the 1988 Prince's Trust Rock Gala included an all-star cast of the biggest names in the business. Included in the show were Eric Clapton, Elton John, Mark Knopfler of the Dire Straits, Joe Cocker, Queen's Brian May, the Bee Gees, Howard Jones, Ultravox's Midge Ure, Rick Astley, Wet Wet Wet, T'Pau, Peter Gabriel, Leonard Cohen, and Phil Collins. The show was an overwhelming success both artistically and financially, helping to raise over £48 million for the charity. Musically, it was a mix of legendary songs and current Top 40 hits of that time. Superstars such as Elton John and Mark Knopfler performed one song each, but flavor-of-the-month pop stars such as T'pau and Wet Wet Wet performed three or four songs, none of which were very big hits outside of the U.K. All in all, there was incredible music made at this show.
