In This Week... Queen Played Live Aid


The day that two Queens ruled in London. One Queen by the people, and one Queen for the people!

36 years ago, Queen performed at Live Aid. Live Aid was held on Saturday, 13 July 1985, at Wembley Stadium. Live Aid's purpose was to raise funds for Africa which over $127 million was raised. 72,000 people attended the event to watch around 75 different artists perform. Artists ranging from Duran Duran, Santana, U2, Bryan Adams, Tom Petty, Queen, Madonna, Neil Young, David Bowie, and many more.

The most memorable moment was when Queen took to the stage for their twenty-one minute performance. The band fired off song after song, starting off with a shorter version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and ending with "We Are the Champions". During the whole performs Mercury dominated the crowd when it came to "Ay-Oh", also known as "The Note Heard Round the World", when he got the crowd to sing in unison. 

Still to this day, Queen's Live Aid performance is one of the best performances in musical history. Queen is still as current now as they were back in the 80's and early 90's. Even with the death of Freddie Mercury, his legacy still holds strong to this day.
