In June 1979, Pete Townshend gave a solo acoustic performance at Amnesty Internationals Secret Policeman’s Ball benefit show in London, inspiring Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Sting, Bob Geldof, Phil Collins and many others to perform for Amnesty. It also helped inspire the unplugged of the 90s, and galvanized a generation of musicians to become involved in social and political causes: Sting, Peter Gabriel, Bob Geldof (who later founded Live Aid) and Bono all cite the show as the inspiration for their activism. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of that historic first show, Shout! Factory is proud to partner with Amnesty on this collection of the musical highlights from three decades of Secret Policemans Ball shows.Program Listing: Pinball Wizard – Pete TownshendFarther Up The Road – Eric Clapton & Jeff BeckRoxanne – StingIn the Air Tonight – Phil CollinsRunning Up That Hill – Kate Bush Imagine – Mark Knopfler & Chet AtkinsOn The Turning Away – David GilmourAmnesty – Dave StewartI Don’t Like Mondays – Bob GeldofCause We’ve Ended As Lovers – Eric Clapton & Jeff BeckMessage In A Bottle – StingWon’t Get Fooled Again – Pete Townshend & John WilliamsBiko – Peter GabrielI Shall Be Released – The Secret Police
