It was a concert event that would have thrilled Freddie Mercury.
On April 20th, 1992, the surviving member of Queen gathered many of music’s most talented people together at Wembley Stadium to honor their former bandmate Freddie Mercury.
And what a concert it was! Special guests include David Bowie, Gary Cherone, Roger Daltrey, Def Leppard, Joe Elliot, Extreme, Bob Geldof, Guns 'n' Roses, James Hetfield, Ian Hunter, Tony Iommi, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Metallica, George Michael, Liza Minnelli, Robert Plant, Mick Ronson, Axl Rose, Seal, Slash, Lisa Stansfield, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Young & Zucchero.
Eagle Rock Entertainment has just released the whole concert on DVD/Blue Ray/Digital. Even better, they’re staying true to the one of the goals of the concert, to raise money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust that fights AIDS all over the world. Net proceeds from the sale of this release will be paid to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
Not only can you pick a great concert video for yourself and maybe get some early holiday shopping done, you’ll be helping a worthwhile charity.
