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
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
CAREY and SIR Elton John.
