"It was a little over 25 years ago when Britain's best known rock promoter, Harvey Goldsmith, came back from organising a Wham! tour in China to find a scruffy Irish singer waiting outside his office.

"It was Bob Geldof, who was in the grip of a wild idea that he could stage the biggest charity rock concert in history. He had Wembley Stadium booked, he had friends in the rock business lined up to perform, and all he needed was a promoter to handle the organisation. Goldsmith said yes and the rest, as they say, is history.

"Not just history, but drama. A company called Great Meadow Productions has begun filming a drama documentary for BBC2, entitled When Harvey Met Bob starring Domhnall Gleeson as Geldof and Ian Hart as Goldsmith." [1]

"Harvey Goldsmith joined the Princes Trust in 1982 and produced the first Princes Trust Rock Gala. Harvey then became a member of the Princes Trust Board and Vice Chairman of Princes Trust Trading Limited." [2]
