Queen rocked the Live Aid show back in 1985 to raise money for the Ethiopian famine, and now, guitarist Brian May believes the group should play another benefit gig to fund climate change.
According to UK’s Mirror, he believes that many people would want to follow-up with 2007’s Live Earth benefit shows, and if so, Queen would be available. While he said the group would help in any way they could, he thinks the younger generation needs to “take that bull by the horns.” Since the issue is “so enormous,” he thinks the concert might even need to be bigger than Live Aid – which raised £150 million.
“People have seen so many concerts since Live Aid purporting to be solving the problems of the world so it’s not quite as easy as it seems,” he said.
Longtime Queen members May and Roger Taylor are heading out on a North American run this summer with rockstar Adam Lambert on the Rhapsody Tour. The trek, which will kick-off on July 10 and run through August 23, follows the release of the 2018 film Bohemian Rhapsody, which outlined the group’s formation with frontman Freddie Mercury.
Queen, a rock phenomenon, is best-known for iconic smash-hit songs like A Night At The Opera’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” News of The World’s “We Are The Champions” and “We Will Rock You,” The Game’s “Another One Bites The Dust,” and Hot Space’s “Under Pressure” with David Bowie. Throughout their career, they garnered a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
