WATCH Queen with Adam Lambert perform 1985 Live Aid set for Fire Fight Australia benefit concert

LAS VEGAS, NV – SEPTEMBER 01: Singer Adam Lambert (L) and guitarist Brian May of Queen + Adam Lambert perform as the group kicks off its 10-date limited engagement, “The Crown Jewels,” at Park Theater at Park MGM on September 1, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

Queen‘s Live Aid show is one of the most legendary concert performances in history.  So, it’s fitting that the current incarnation of Queen with Adam Lambert would perform that set to support a cause they are passionate about.

So, the audience at Sydney’s ANZ’s Stadium got to see the first time that memorable set was reenacted.  “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer to Fall,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Will Rock You,” and “We Are the Champions” composed the 22-minute set with archived footage of Freddie Mercury encouraging the audience to sing along.  Assuming you weren’t in Australia this weekend, you can check out the show for yourself…

The concert raised funds for the National Bushfire Relief, which is in desperate need after months of wildfire throughout Australia.
