About Just For One Day Tickets

Just For One Day description

Just For One Day – The Live Aid Story

The Band Aid Charitable Trust and the Old Vic are delighted to confirm the world premiere of Just For One Day. This is a brand new musical written by the best-selling author John O’Farrell (Mrs Doubtfire, Something Rotten). Directed by Luke Sheppard (&Juliet, The Little Big Things), Just For One Day is on the stage for a limited run between 26th January to 30th March 2024.

Just For One Day tickets – Unique memories

Roll back time to 1984 when Bob Geldof and his crew smashed it with a huge charity concert that changed the world forever. Set against a background of political upheaval, social revolution, cultural rebellion and boom-and-bust economics, one and a half billion people were brought together by music in an effort to save lives in Ethiopia. On that day music changed the world, and almost forty years later the Band Aid Charitable Trust is still going strong.

All about Just For One Day – Fabulous music

The musical features the brilliant music of Bob Dylan, David Bowie, The Who, U2, Queen, The Police, Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Pretenders, The Cars, Status Quo, Paul Weller, Sade, The Boomtown Rats, Bryan Adams, Diana Ross, Ultravox and many more bands and musicians, all of whom gave their time and talent freely to a vital cause.

As Matthew Warchus, the Artistic Director of The Old Vic, says: “I had the pleasure of working with Luke Sheppard on Matilda The Musical and I have always admired the witty brilliance of John O’Farrell’s writing – I am thrilled to have these two great forces uniting on The Old Vic stage alongside an excellently talented company. For those of us who were around in the ‘80s, Saturday 13 July 1985 I’m sure will be one of those days that is forever etched in our memories. We all remember where we watched Live Aid, who we watched it with, and the pure amazement at the feat that was unfolding before our eyes. It’s these memories and individual stories that are the beating heart of Just For One Day, and I can’t wait for audiences to share in a moment that galvanised the globe once again.”

Bob Geldof himself commented on the news, saying in typical bold style: “From seeing Just For One Day throughout its development, if this musical encourages just one person to have a positive impact for the better, then it will be a job well done. I'm looking forward to seeing it at The Old Vic... it better not be shit!”
