Music 14/05/2020

Queen are going to stream the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for Aids Awareness on the band's YouTube channel this Saturday morning to raise money for the WHO and COVID-19 relief. 

The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert took place at Wembley Stadium in April of 1992, in front of a sold out crowd of 72,000, and was broadcast globally to over a billion people. The concert was a tribute to the legendary Freddie Mercury, who died of AIDS the year earlier. 

During the concert, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon were joined on stage by huge acts such as David Bowie, Elton John, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Def Leppard, and more. It was pretty epic. 

The concert is set to livestream at 6 am on Saturday morning NZT, but in case you don't wanna get up early in your weekend, it'll be available to watch for 48 hours afterwards.

The concert will be livestreamed on Queen's official YouTube channel below.
