20 years on from their Live Aid (1985) triumph, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure recruit the world's music superstars once again to perform live and put pressure on Western governments to help Africa and Make Poverty History.
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 was the only time that David Bowie and Queen performed "Under Pressure" together live. Queen would always perform the song on their own while on tour, despite having recorded it together with Bowie in 1981. See more »

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
