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
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 »

I'm too young remember Live Aid(1985) but this one I didn't miss! The best concert ever with an all star cast of the greatest artists of the 80's and 90's. Many great moments but James Hetfield's version of Stone Cold Crazy and Elton John & Axl Rose version of Bohemian Rhapsody stands out.
A must for anyone who loves rock n roll!
