Peter Gabriel performs “Biko” live at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires Argentina on the final night of the Amnesty International Human Rights Now tour (October 15, 1988).
Another champion of peace and freedom from the 80's is Mark Knopfler. Please check out Dire Straits playing "Brothers in Arms" live for Nelson Mandella's 70th birthday at Wembley in 1988… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAl5jucOgro
En esos tiempos si se luchaba por los derechos humanos, cuando la población civil los padecíaahora hasta los delincuentes tienen derechos humanos.siempre los artistas de renombre y desinteresadamente se hacen solidarios con las causas justas, en su mayoría europeos y americanos
Talk about working a crowd.
Any thumbs down on this is just wrong
How ANY artist could have played South Africa back then. Simply inexcusable. Money was no substitute for a clear conscience. Thankfully those days are long gone. Thank you Peter Gabriel for your role.
God rest the souls of Steve Biko and Nelson Mandela. Warriors for justice. This song did him proud. The most important song of the last 40 years
Is that Manu Katché at the drums?
i watched a version of this done in 2005 (cannot remember where exactly, certainly a European Country), and the crowd was almost unmoved by this song, i was almost offended by it
When Peter starts to sing in his chanting gabrielese style at the beginning of the song, that's when I know why I love this guy so much :-). So much emotion, such passion… A great man 🙂
RIP Stephen Biko and Nelson Mandela
Does anyone have any idea what Peter Gabriel says at 8:08?

80s' stadium rock brought a lot of bombast and contrived "anthems" … this is not one of them ….. beautiful version of a moving song … great crowd to.
