Freddie Mercury died 30 years ago this year and just a few months later Queen members Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon put on a charity gig in his honour. The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness featured a whole host of rock stars performing with Queen from George Michael and David Bowie to Elton John and Robert Plant. The filmed version was on Sky Arts over Christmas and May was rewatching the memorable occasion.
May posted clips on Instagram, commenting: “I‘m watching our Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert - so strange for so many reasons.
“Already so long ago now - we look so young - and all those lovely performers with us…many of them now gone to the place where Freddie went before.
“And of course we were only just beginning to get used to the fact that Freddie would no longer be able to do this wonderful thing with us any more. Of course, it felt like he was with us on this amazing night.”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
But there was one particular performance that the 73-year-old said he would take to his grave.

Right near the end of The Freddie Mercury tribute concert, Queen performed Bohemian Rhapsody with Elton John and Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose.
May posted a clip of the latter, writing: “A moment to take to my grave !!
“Axl Rose explodes on to our Wembley Stadium stage in 1992. Paying tribute to Freddie. —— Bri.”
The performance featured the same light show from Queen’s final set of concerts with Freddie and bassist John Deacon, 1986’s The Magic Tour.
