Queen + Adam Lambert performed the exact same setlist Queen + Freddie Mercury performed at Live Aid in Sydney last night.

Queen performed the Live Aid 22 minute set in 35 years ago 1985. The performance was replicated with actors for the recent ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ movie.

In a statement Brian May said, “We’re very happy to be able to do our bit to help Australia to fight back against the terrible fires. This is Australia’s pain but it’s Humanity’s problem. My heart has broken seeing the plight of the animals. I hope the concert will help them too. We all need this tragedy to never happen again. “

Roger Taylor added, “This would seem to be not only Australia’s problem but a climate change problem that affects the whole world. We are here right now and anything we can do to help in finding Australia a way to recover is the least we can do as musicians. We are all in trouble.”

“It’s terrifying to see what is happening to our world, and we need to take responsibility now. To be able to be part of ‘Fire Fight’ which is doing just that, is a real honour,” says Adam Lambert.
