Trivia

This is from Queen's famous "Magic Tour", which was their biggest ever world tour and also their final tour with the classic lineup of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. Their final concert with Mercury as frontman was soon after this one, at Knebworth Park. Because of Mercury's declining health (he was diagnosed with AIDS the following year), they were never able to tour again. See more »

Quotes

Freddie Mercury: You know something? There's been a lot of rumours lately, about a certain band called Queen. The rumours are that we're going to split up, what do you think?
[audience yells "No!" and Freddie points at his ass]
Freddie Mercury: They're talking from here! My apologies, but I say what I want. You can forget those rumours, we're going to stay together until we fucking well die, I assure you.

Alternate Versions

Take care Freddy
11 April 2003 | by Mr YuSee all my reviews

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to dominate a 100,000 people? How about a 100,000 wet, cold people? There will not be another Freddy Mercury, nor for that matter another Queen. If you think this this is an unreasonable critique, check out the DVD for yourself. After that, check out the double live CD that followed their Live Aid performance. I believe the comment that Live Aid Promoter Bob Geldof said as he was given a $1million cheque was `Who has their sound together?' It was Queen. Stadium Rock was for the most part crap for those of us who were there. Long live Freddy!!!
