Plot & Details
On the 30th Anniversary of the original Amnesty International's Secret Policeman's Ball, event producer\co-founder Martin Lewis compiles some of the finest moments from the annual concert event that inspired rock and rollers to get actively involved with their favorite causes. In the aftermath of Pete Townshend's unforgettable acoustic performance at the June 1979 Secret Policeman's Ball in London, rockers from Sting to Phil Collins became convinced that their music could be used to do something more than simply sell records. Since then, some of the biggest names in music have performed at the annual Secret Policeman's Ball. In addition to performances by Kate Bush, Bob Geldof, and Peter Gabriel, this compilation also features Townshend's memorable of "Pinball Wizard", and finds Eric Clapton teaming with Jeff Beck to perform "Farther Up the Road".
