I believe Status Quo was the opening act at Live Aid in 1985 (Wembley Stadium).
Francis and Rick were supposed to have much more prevalent singing parts in Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas, but they both arrived at the studio stoned and drunk. They sounded so awful that their singing parts were given to other artists. They did manage, however, to provide plenty of entertainment for everyone else.
