35 Years Ago Today- Queen Owns the World at Live Aid

35 years ago today (7/13/85), Queen, performing to their biggest-ever TV audience of 1.9 billion, stole the show at the Live Aid benefit concert held at London’s Wembley Stadium. Led by the truly enigmatic Freddie Mercury, Queen played a note for note dominating set that had the 70k + audience turned into a sea of communal enthusiasm and rejoice. The 20-minute set included “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer to Fall” (Queen’s newest single), “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and the finale of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.” Of course, this set would form the backbone of the biographic film Bohemian Rhapsody and is still considered one of rock’s all greatest displays of showmanship and performance.
