The 72,000 people who were fortunate enough to see the concert live, did so in glorious spring weather in front of a stage 370 ft wide and 90 ft deep. The stage was flanked by scaffolding towers over 80 ft tall, and a giant phoenix - the symbol of the charity formed to distribute the money from the event - crowned the centre of the proscenium arch.

At 6pm, John Deacon, Brian May and Roger Taylor, the remaining three members of Queen, took stage to announce the start of one of the biggest events in rock history and to pay tribute to their former colleague - the incomparable Freddie Mercury. The atmosphere of emotion, mixed joy and sadness, shared by stadium audience, worldwide television viewers, and performers alike, was an experience that will never be forgotten. The event is now captured here on video, a lasting tribute to be shared by all. ALL profits from this video will be donated by the Mercury Phoenix Trust to AIDS charities worldwide.

"I can honestly say that the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert was the biggest musical event of the 90's (and perhaps -and to my own judgment-, the greatest concert in music history). Besides, where else were you able to find artists like Metallica, Roger Daltrey (The Who), Def Leppard, George Michael, David Bowie, Guns N' Roses, Robert Plant(Led Zeppelin), Elton John, and of course Queen. All in one bill!!"
