It was one of the most significant musical events in history, in which superstars came together in song to give something back.

Live Aid saw music royalty such as Queen, David Bowie and Paul McCartney perform across two simultaneous concerns in London and Philadelphia, united by one good cause.

Now, organisers of a tribute concert to this occasion have decided to give something back to the community themselves, with a gesture to the emergency services.

Total Productions, organisers of the Live Aid Experience events, has extended an invitation to members of local police, firefighters, doctors and nurses to claim free tickets to the concert.

The concert will see performers recreate the songs of many of the artists that featured at the famous concerts, including Elton John, Dire Straits and The Beach Boys.

Phil Hawkins, of, Total Productions said: 'We put the gig together to celebrate Live Aid, and like Live Aid, we wanted to give something back.

'This is why we have chosen to offer free entry to members of the local emergency services.
