Queen + Various - The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert mp3 album

The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness was a benefit concert held on Easter Monday, 20 April 1992 at Wembley Stadium in London, England for an audience of 72,000. The concert was produced for television by Ray Burdis, directed by David Mallet and broadcast live on television and radio to 76 countries around the world, with an audience of up to one billion. The concert was a tribute to Queen's lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury, who died of AIDS on 24 November 1991.

The best Queen-related moments from the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert on April 20, 1992 at Wembley Stadium. That was, sadly, to be Freddie Mercury's final album with Queen. Plant's vocal performance on the song is appropriately passionate; he and the members of Queen then playfully launch into "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," eliciting a wild response from the audience.

The Ultimate Queen site, featuring album details, videos and DVD's, song lyrics and versions, demos, unreleased songs, discographies, galleries and concerts. Various inserts appear throughout the videos, which were shown via videoscreen during the concert, partly as fillers while the stage was prepared for the next act. These inserts feature the audience singing along in several places. 2002 Reissue: This release loses most of the first video, but retains the second, and adds some bonus features. The menu allows the whole concert to be played, jump directly to a song, or to select between stereo or surround sound.

Queen were joined by some of the greatest musical talent in the world to celebrate Freddie’s life and work and to increase public awareness of AIDS, the disease that had prematurely ended his life the previous year. As well as being great entertainment, the concert raised a huge and still growing sum of money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity formed at the time whose charter is the relief of suffering from AIDS throughout the world.

The AIDS charity concert staged by the surviving members of Queen on April 20, 1992, at Wembley Stadium was an appropriate send-off for the band's late lead singer, Freddie Mercury, who had succumbed to the disease five months earlier. The flamboyant Mercury was always in his element before gigantic crowds like the one that filled Wembley one last time, and his stand-ins for the occasion - Gary Cherone (then of Extreme), Roger Daltrey, Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), James Hetfield (Metallica), Elton John, Annie Lennox, George Michael, Liza Minnelli, Robert Plant, Axl Rose (Guns N'.

The show marked bassist John Deacon's final full-length concert with Queen (save a short live appearance with Brian May, Roger Taylor and Elton John in 1997). The profits from the concert were used to launch The Mercury Phoenix Trust, an AIDS charity organisation. YouTube Encyclopedic.
