Queen - 20 minutos que cambiaron la música

Quen en Live Aid 1985,La mayoría de los mejores artistas de la época estaban presentes en este famoso mega festival y Queen, por supuesto, tenía que estar allí. Cada artista recibió de diez a veinte minutos de su show, nadie tuvo oportunidad de hacer pruebas de sonido. Queen dudó, porque subirse en el escenario sin una prueba de sonido es siempre un riesgo. Pero entonces ellos aceptaron las reglas y sus 20 minutos, se convirtieron en los 20 minutos que cambiaron la música. 

Freddie Mercury con su banda Queen deslumbraron y le robaron el show a artistas de la talla de U2, Elton John, Madona, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan... Tocaron Bohemian Rhpsody (sin la parte de la opera), Radio Ga Ga seguido de We Will Rock You....

Most of top artists of that time were present at this mega-famous festival and Queen of course had to be there. Each artist got from ten to twenty minutes for their show; no playback or soundcheck were allowed. Queen hesitated because playing without a soundcheck is always a risk. But then they accepted the rules and their 20 minutes of fame came on at 18:44 GMT.

Queen were on top form and not only according to Bob Geldof and Elton John, they stole the show. They played only the intro to Bohemian Rhapsody (the opera part couldn't be played from the tape as playback was forbidden & there wasn't enough time anyway). Instead of the opera part, Radio Ga Ga followed. We Will Rock You was reduced to the first verse (and the final guitar solo) only. Is This The World We Created was performed by Freddie and Brian only later in the evening.
