Queen To Perform At Live 8 VIA Satellite

Legendary British rockers QUEEN will perform at London's LIVE 8 concert thanks to a live satellite link-up.

The WE WILL ROCK YOU legends - who starred in the original LIVE AID extravaganza 20 years ago (85) - are busy performing in Portugal on 2 July (05) when the Hyde Park charity show takes place.

But Queen are so keen to play at the historic event, they are arranging a spectacular satellite connection to join British fans at the star-studded line up.

Live 8 spokesman PHIL SYMES says, "The band are playing an outdoor concert on the same day. They are discussing featuring at Live 8 on a big screen."

BRIAN MAY, ROGER TAYLOR, JOHN DEACON and PAUL RODGERS - the ex-FREE and BAD COMPANY singer who replaced the band's late frontman FREDDIE MERCURY - will 'virtually' perform alongside other A-list celebrities including SIR PAUL McCARTNEY, MARIAH CAREY and SIR ELTON JOHN.
