September 5 would have been legendary frontman Freddie Mercury‘s 65th birthday. To mark the occasion, QUEEN will stream its historic 1986
concert “Queen Live At Wembley Stadium” for 48 hours on YouTube.
The concert can be viewed at this location starting at 12:00 a.m. EST on September 5. This is the first time QUEEN has allowed an online stream of this watershed moment in the band’s career. The concert captures the group’s historic July 1986 two-night performance at London’s Wembley Stadium, where they gave an electrifying performance to 150,000 frenzied fans. The footage features stunning live renditions of many of QUEEN‘s classic songs, including fan favorites such as “We Will Rock You”, “We Are The Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

One year after their triumphant appearance at “Live Aid”, QUEEN (vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon) returned to Wembley for two consecutive sold-out concerts. “Queen Live At Wembley Stadium” documents the second night, July 12, 1986. The footage highlights QUEEN‘s dazzling performance, which blended older classics like “Seven Seas of Rhye” and “Tie Your Mother Down” with new audience favorites such as “Radio Ga Ga” and “Hammer To Fall”.

“Queen Live At Wembley Stadium” showcases the legendary rock band’s versatility, musical range and showmanship on their most successful
tour. “The Wembley concerts were the pinnacle for us,” says May. “We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None us realized that this would be almost the last time we would play together.”
