Queen will premiere the 1992 tribute concert to their late frontman on YouTube for 48 hours TODAY, Friday 15 May.

The gig – which featured everyone from Guns N’ Roses to David Bowie, is getting an exclusive screening to help raise funds for the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 relief fund.

The band announced their plans to stream the concert on Instagram and say Google will donate $2 for every $1 contributed by fans watching from 7pm Friday Dublin time.

The event, which took place on 20 April 1992 at Wembley Stadium, was originally devised to celebrate the late frontman’s legacy and raise money for AIDS research, which Mercury tragically died of complications from the year before.
