HELLO LONDON | JUST FOR ONE DAY – THE OLD VIC
Hello Beautiful Souls! Unexpectedly stumbled upon a musical that brought back the magic of Live Aid – the iconic event that took place on the 13th of July 1985. This month has been filled with exciting events, and I couldn’t wait to share one that you can still catch while it’s ongoing.
It all began when a friend invited me to the first musical of 2024, “Just for One Day,” at the Old Vic in Waterloo. To our surprise, it turned out to be the premiere – a fantastic way to kick off the musical season. You have until the 30th of March 2024 to experience this extraordinary journey, so there’s still plenty of time to secure your ticket.
“Just for One Day” is a delightful musical that takes you back to the day when music united everyone. Each cast member boasts beautiful voices, and the soundtrack features timeless hits from Bob Dylan, David Bowie, The Who, U2, Queen, The Police, Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Pretenders, The Cars, Status Quo, Sade, The Boomtown Rats, Diana Ross, Ultravox, and more.
The scenes featuring Bob Geldof and Margaret Thatcher are a highlight, leaving the audience with big smiles. The humour is brilliantly done. Beyond the wonderful songs, it was enlightening to learn the backstory of Live Aid. Who knew Bob Geldof was not only a musical force but also a political activist? I must admit; I was unaware of his band, Boomtown Rats.
If you’re a child of the 80s or 90s, this musical will undoubtedly stir up some nostalgic memories. The songs alone transported me back in time. For those from the 2000s, it’s a chance to experience one of the greatest concerts in 1985.
Don’t miss out on this musical journey that celebrates the power of music to bring people together.
Enjoy the musical magic!
