Queen are sharing their famous 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness via Youtube. The band is raising money to donate to COVID-19 relief efforts and they’ll be sharing the show for 48 hours via their Youtube.
The set will be live on Queen’s Youtube from 2pm EST Friday, 15th May — 4am tomorrow for the AESTers.
Queens’ Benefit Concert went down in London’s Wembley Stadium on Easter Monday (20th, April). The surviving members of the band: Brian May, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor wanted to perform the benefit concert in memory of Freddie Mercury, who had passed away the previous November.
The concert sees Queen and friends like David Bowie, Elton John, Axl Rose, and James Hetfield (to name a few) honour Freddie Mercury. The setlist included some real treats like Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’, and a special rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ with Elton John and Axl Rose.
Earlier this month, Queen and Adam Lambert released a charity single entitled ‘You Are The Champions’.
