: The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for Aids Awareness

Live from London's Wembley Stadium, a special concert dedicated to the memory of Freddie Mercury.

The lead singer of the rock group Queen died from an Aids-related illness in November 1991. John Deacon, Brian May and Roger Taylor, the remaining members of the band, announced this tribute to one of pop's most flamboyantly popular performers at the Brit Awards ceremony earlier this year, when they collected a posthumous award on his behalf. Among tonight's acts are opera singer Montserrat Caballe whose duet with Mercury, Barcelona, was a no 8 hit in 1987, David Bowie, Roger Daltrey, Def Leppard, Extreme, Guns 'n' Roses, Ian Hunter, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Metallica, George Michael, Robert Plant, Seal, U2, Paul Young and Zucchero. Presented by Tony Wilson and Lisa I'Anson.

With just two months to get the concert off the ground, the organisers were overwhelmed by the response from performers, technical crews and the public - all 72,000 tickets were sold within six hours of the box office opening. Profits from tonight's performance are being donated to Aids charities worldwide.
Roger Taylor says: "We see this concert as a celebration of Freddie's life, and the fulfilment of his wish to get across the message that Aids affects us all."

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
