On this day in music history in 2005, Queen’s 1985 Live Aid performance is voted the best rock concert ever.
When it comes to live performances, Queen may be one of the greatest to ever do it in the history of music. In terms of entertainment value there weren’t many that could even be in the same discussion as them. Especially, with the voice of the legend himself Freddie Mercury.
In the 1985, Queen’s Live Aid performance probably didn’t seem as legendary as it ended up being in the future. In 2005, Their Live Aid performance was voted the best rock concert ever by over 7,000 UK Sony Ericsson music fans.
Obviously, that puts the band in elite company in terms of music history. The day Queen took the stage at London’s Wembley Stadium on July 13, 1985 ended up being an unbelievable show and was remembered for many years to come.
On this day, lets’s relive that unforgettable show! Rest in peace Freddie Mercury!
