LIVE-AID July 13, 1985, at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia USA: In the past Tina toured with the Rolling Stones in the ’60s, so this pairing of lead singer Mick Jagger and Tina was a natural. The duo performed “State of Shock” and the classic “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll”. It was a memorable performance as Mick Jagger decided to yank off Tina’s miniskirt in an impromptu moment and Tina just went with the situation and continued performing. The show must go on! Classic Live-Aid moment
