In 1985 Freddie Mercury and his colleagues made headlines around the world with a 22-minute set that featured classic tracks “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer to Fall,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.” You can watch the performance below.
All six tracks were delivered in the same format at the ANZ Stadium, Sydney, as Queen helped generate cash to help deal with the aftermath of Australia’s record bushfire season, which raged out of control for weeks.(ultimateclassicrock)

Upon his arrival in Brisbane, Australia, Queen guitarist Brian May took exception to a cameraman for a TV news crew filming him as he signed autographs for fans. Despite repeated requests to stop, the man continued, even switching to his phone after shutting off the camera, and May began to move towards the man until he was led away.
May later issued a statement where he thanked the fans who supported him. He added that he regretted getting angry, but he considered the act to be “severe provocation, and to me the behavior of the camera guy and the Channel 7 News Team is shabby and shameful. I’d like an apology from them all, but of course the chances of that are small.”

Always in defense of animals
It must be said that with animals Brian May plays at home, having for years been involved in the defense of animal rights, to the point of having founded, in 2009, “Save Me Trust”, an English organization that deals with the care and the recovery of animals in difficulty.
