A live concert in tribute to Freddie Mercury, former lead singer of Queen. Mercury died of AIDS and so some of the proceeds of this concert went to AIDS research. Features performers such as Metallica, Def Leppard, Elton John, Axl Rose, Extreme, George Michael, and many others. Performers alternate between doing their own hits, covering Queen songs, or jamming with the surviving members of Queen. Written by
This is, to date, the only time that David Bowie and Queen have performed "Under Pressure" together live. They have usually performed the song on their own while on tour, despite having recorded it together in 1981. See more »
Queen were and still are without a doubt the best band that ever graced planet earth.
This very emotional tribute concert pays tribute to one of the worlds most powerful rock legends ever, the great Freddie Mercury who sadly died in November 1991 from AIDS.
The Freddie Mercury tribute concert boasts a whole lot of stars. From George Michael who did an amazing job when singing "somebody to love" to Elton John, who was a close friend of Freddie's. Heavy metal groups like Guns n Roses and Metallica performed with style to.
Overall a very good and emotional concert.
