Yep
I remember watching the UK and US concerts broadcast live on TV and spending most of the day/weekend glued to the TV
I believe it was the first Sabbath reunion for some time
If you go to you tube and type in Black Sabbath Live Aid you can watch the footage
Ozzy had blond hair and was looking quite chubby and overweight but he still had great energy
I guess the booze and drugs will do that to you

we spent our whole day at our brother's house videotaping that show
then an ex "borrowed" the tapes to copy them and lost them
that was an awesome show, the likes of which may never be seen again

the US Festivals were cool too.  four days, each different styles of music
unfortunately, whenever they play it on TV they only show the new wave music one
