Queen to Stream Historic Wembley Concert in Honor of Freddie Mercury

September 2, 2011
imgSeptember 5th would have been legendary frontman Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday. To mark the occasion, Queen will stream their historic 1986 concert Queen Live At Wembley Stadium for 48 hours on YouTube. The concert can be viewed at  www.youtube/queenofficial starting at 12:00AM EST on September 5th. This is the first time in Queen has allowed an online stream of this watershed moment in the band’s career. The concert captures the group’s historic July 1986 two-night performance at London’s Wembley Stadium, where they gave an electrifying performance to 150,000 frenzied fans. The footage features stunning live renditions of many of Queen’s classic songs, including fan favorites such as “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
 
One year after their triumphant appearance at Live Aid, Queen (vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon) returned to Wembley for two consecutive sold-out concerts. Queen Live At Wembley Stadium documents the second night, July 12th, 1986. The footage highlights Queen’s dazzling performance, which blended older classics like “Seven Seas of Rhye” and “Tie Your Mother Down” with new audience favorites such as “Radio Ga Ga”  and “Hammar To Fall.”

Queen Live At Wembley Stadium showcases the legendary rock band’s versatility, musical range and showmanship on their most successful tour. “The Wembley concerts were the pinnacle for us,” says May.  “We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None us realized that this would be almost the last time we would play together.”
