Trivia

Brian May apologized to Fish, the former lead singer of rock band Marillion, after he was left off the bill despite desperately wanting to be a part of it due to his huge admiration for Mercury as a performer and friendship with him from the time Marillion supported Queen on the Magic Tour in 1986. Fish told fans there had been pressures from outside the band to put acts on the bill who did not necessarily have a personal connection to Queen but were bigger names at the time. Fish said the song he would have performed was "Liar", a track from the first Queen album. See more »

It's "in the lap of the gods"...
18 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

I first saw The Freddie Mercury Tribute in 1995, when I was 14, and I was blown away! It is jam-packed full of Queen songs, footage, *and* rock legends. This concert (the video)introduced me to Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant, which has consequently made me a *huge* Who and Led Zeppelin fan. Anyway, this concert is fabulous. One of my favourite parts is when Brian May is singing 'Too Much Love Will Kill You', and is almost crying! :( It is definitely recommended. I am positive that if you do not particularly like Queen when you first view it, you will by the end of it, as well as all the other legends involved. Words just cannot describe, and I cannot imagine how amazing it must have been to have actually attended the concert! Queen really are the champions, and this concert really *will* rock you! -Cathryn
