Heard the phrase – “getting high on music”? Well, that’s exactly what Comic Relief has planned! UK-based charity for the poor, Comic Relief would go live on the 10th of March, the venue being British Airways, and, at the height of 43,000 feet! British Airways is hosting the ‘Highest 80s Gig in the Sky’ to raise funds for Comic Relief. Doing so, the charity organization would like to officially break the existing Guinness World Record for the highest concert ever, at present held by British vocalist James Blunt for his gig on the Boeing 767-300 at 42,080 feet.
With a thought-provoking tagline, “The Eighties are back, with altitude,” the concert by Comic Relief would include musicians: Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley, Bananarama, Kim Wilde, and Go West, among others. Completing the experience, the British Airways crew would sport an 80’s uniform.
Playing host to an enthralling concert as such, British Airways is as excited as Comic Relief and has made provisions to give away 40 pairs of tickets which could be won through a competition. The proceeds from this would go to Comic Relief.
