Queen share Freddie Mercury We Will Rock You live montage across four epic shows
Brian May performs at We Will Rock You musical revival
The latest episode of Queen The Greatest Live continues the exploration of the band’s iconic encores.
For over 40 years the original foursome, through to the collaboration with Adam Lambert today, have concluded their shows spectacularly with a double-bill whammy of We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.
In the new video below, Queen’s team have mashed together four epic 1980s concerts of Freddie Mercury and group performing We Will Rock You.
Songwriter Brian May had always intended the track to involve audience participation with the ubiquitous stomp-stomp-clap to “bring people together”.

The video includes the caption: “At the Milton Keynes Bowl in ’82, the singer emerges from the wings in a traditional wide-brimmed hat to greet his countrymen. At Hungary’s Népstadion on the 1986 Magic Tour Freddie salutes the audience with its national white, red and green flag colours.
“At 1985’s Rock In Rio, he appears swaddled in the colours of the Brazilian flag with its famous motto Ordem e Progresso (‘Order and Progress’), while most flamboyant of all, the singer slowly walks to the lip of the stage in Japan ’85 – before spinning to reveal that the reverse of his Union Jack cape bears the crimson dot of the Hinomaru.”
