A CONSPIRACY OF HOPE

(1986, 660 mins, Amnesty International/MTV)

Inspired by the success of the UK-produced "Secret Policeman's Ball" shows, films and albums - and in particular the impact of rock musicians on galvanizing the public, in June 1986 the US section of Amnesty organized a six-city tour of the US in which a caravan of musicians would spread the human rights message at concerts. Starring U2, The Police (specially reformed after a 4-year hiatus), Peter Gabriel, Jackson Browne and Lou Reed - the shows were a rollicking success. The tour's grand finale was an all-day concert at Giants Stadium. The touring artists were joined by a plethora of artists including Bryan Adams, Carlos Santana, Miles Davis, Joan Armatrading, Rubˇn Blades, Joan Baez, Fela, The Neville Brothers, Bob Geldof, Howard Jones, Joni Mitchell, Yoko Ono, Steven Van Zandt. With appearances by Robert DeNiro, Michael J. Fox, Muhammed Ali. The 11-hour concert was televised by MTV as a Live Aid-style spectacular. This all-day special only ever aired live - and was never repeated. Never on VHS or DVD. We are showing it uncut, in the same month-of-the-year, same day-of-the-week, exact same timeframe. Minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. 12-noon till 11pm. Click here to see the full schedule detailing the timetable for all the artists.
