Storyline

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 Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Very good concert performance
2 June 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This concert tribute to the late Freddie Mercury (frontmen of legendary UK rock band QUEEN) is a great performance. There are so many guest appearances, including Elton John, Def Leppard and Axl Rose.

There are many musical performances, but the most popular -- and best -- has to be the reinterpretation of Queen's most famous song, Bohemian Rhapsody, which is performed here by Elton John and Axl Rose. It's a great performance, a great song -- and it sounds (arguably) even better with John and Rose singing it. (Although Queen fans may disagree on that one.) Overall this is a great performance and everyone involved is giving 100%. And for the record, I absolutely loved the performance of We Will Rock You, which is probably the second best song here - and it's really well performed.

Worth watching.
