July 13, 1985. Live Aid is staged at Wembley Stadium in London. $127 million is raised for famine relief in Africa. And Queen steals the show.
Since the release of Bohemian Rhapsody last year, tens of thousands of words have been spilled on the internet about the brilliance of Freddie Mercury and how the Live Aid performance has gone down as one of the greatest rock gigs of all-time. I won’t belabor the point with any more flowery phrases. All I’ll do is ask, on the anniversary, for you to revisit and be dazzled by Queen at Live Aid.
