“You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it - I thank you all.”
Remembering Live Aid which took place on this day 27 years ago.
Live Aid - July 13, 1985.
On this day 27 years ago, Queen took the stage at Live Aid and proved to the world that they are the best live band ever. It was the biggest show on earth, broadcast live on TV to over a billion people worldwide and because of it, Queen became the biggest band on earth from the moment they arrived on stage. Freddie set Wembley Stadium alight and turned Queen into the ultimate super group. It was the performance which, undoubtedly, was the pinnacle of their career.
To celebrate Queen, make sure you watch this brilliant performance today (in 720p HD) and clap your hands to Radio Gaga!
