Q 778: The Pride of England

This is something that happened in the year 1985, rather, one of two HUGE events in the music world dedicated to a cause(mostly in Africa at that time). It featured all the biggies.

Call this __Z__.

Now, there came this band __X___ who played for some 20 odd minutes.
Some regard this little cameo to be their crowning glory, or at least that of their front man. They started off with one of their huge hits, __Y__ but there were rules pre-set. The event did not allow

  • Sound-checks.
  • Playback of previously recorded pieces.
Owing to these difficulties, __Y__ couldn't be played to completion. 
So, they mixed things up and played another hugely popular song, and incidentally, the name of which inspired a crazy "female" to kick start her musical career. 

In spite of the risks of messing up existing, the band went on to steal the show.
