1985 – Mr. Bad Guy
Freddie’s first solo album,
Mr. Bad Guy,
was released on April 19th whilst the band was on tour in Australia.

Live Aid

1985 – Live Aid
July 13th 1985, was a day that went down in history
as the Live Aid Global Jukebox took the world by storm
from London’s vast Wembley Stadium and from Philadelphia in the USA.

Queen were just one of a multitude of top bands
who all performed a short, 20-minute set.
The world was watching, and Queen were unanimously voted
– by press and public alike – as the band that stole the show.
That event was a turning point for Queen.
