LiveAid - July 13, 1985
Both of these pictures are supposed to be from LiveAid. If so, then why do Mike & Al have on different clothes in the different pictures? Costume change? Mix-up on dates of pictures?

Second, I was at the National Mall in Washington DC on July 4th, 1985, where the Beach Boys played that day. REO Speedwagon was not on the ticket there that day. I didn't see REO live till about 2o years later, in NY. However, 9 days later, on July 13th, 1985 they stopped in Philadelphia to play at the US Leg of Live Aid. They performed two of their songs featuring members of the Beach Boys and Paul Shaffer (of Late Night with David Letterman, left center of the bottom photo, in gray slacks).
I feel confident the bottom photo is from the July 13th show in '85, but the top photo just seems more recent. (were there wireless mics in '85?) I could be wrong on the top photo.
