Performers alternate between doing their own hits, covering Queen songs, or jamming with the surviving members of Queen. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Great concert!
15 March 1999 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a VERY emotional concert, with the biggest names in the rock history, paying their respect to Queen's lead singer in 20 years Freddie Mercury, who sadly died of AIDS in 1991! It's a great concert with a lot of good rock tunes!!
