 Queen and Adam Lambert played the band’s setlist from their iconic 1985 Live Aid concert for Fire Fight Australia, the massive Australian bushfire benefit concert held in Sydney today (February 16).

This was the band’s first time performing the original 22-minute set “for the first time in its history”, Queen noted in a social media post earlier today.
At Fire Fight Australia, Queen even broadcast footage of late frontman Freddie Mercury to replicate how Mercury encouraged the 1985 Live Aid audience at Wembley in an energetic singalong, only to light-heartedly tell them “Fuck you” afterwards.
Brian May had previously described Fire Fight Australia as a benefit concert “a bit like Live Aid” when he initially revealed that Queen had been approached to play the event.
Fire Fight Australia is being broadcast live in Australia via Channel Seven and Foxtel. Viewers in the UK will be able to watch selected highlights on Sky One HD from 8pm on Monday, February 17.
Besides Queen, other acts playing Fire Fight Australia included Alice Cooper, k.d. Lang, Ronan Keating and Michael Buble.
Aussie artists playing the massive event included Olivia Newton-John, Daryl Braithwaite, Hilltop Hoods, Icehouse, Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Peking Duk and many more.
