Live AID was huge back on July 13th, 1985.

Phil Collins played both London and Philadelphia for the live event, he got there on the concord. (supersonic jet that is longer in service)

Many other bands played that day too including Led Zeppelin.

However nobody had a bigger experience than Queen. As portrayed in the film Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen had recently re-united and rehearsed for this once in a lifetime gig.

Freddie Mercury who had also recently discovered that he was HIV positive a few weeks before the show stepped up and delivered an amazing 20 minute set with his band which you can see below.

RiP Freddie.
