Considered one of the most memorable on stage concert performances of all time, Queen stole the show at Live Aid in 1985 with their performance of multiple hits.
Over three decades on, Bryan Singer’s biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” now re-creates that memorable moment with Rami Malek showing up in character as the late Freddie Mercury and doing a pretty spot on accurate version of his performance.
Photos and video from the filming of that scene have popped up online on social media and in the British tabloids, including one shot where original Queen member Brian May can be seen watching the action and smiling broadly.
Check out a sampling below. The film itself opens December next year.
