Queen and Paul Rodgers host online concert screening in aid of Ukraine


Queen and Paul Rodgers are hosting an online screening of their 2008 concert in Ukraine to raise money for the war-torn country.

The rock band have announced they will be sharing a special YouTube premiere of the former live event on March 19 at 5pm to raise funds for UNHCR – the UN Refugee Agency.

Queen guitarist Brian May described the 2008 Freedom Square concert in Kharkiv as a “historic moment” when they hosted a free event to more than 350,000 live viewers to raise awareness of AIDS.

Sharing a teaser video of the concert on Instagram, May wrote: “In September 2008, Queen + Paul Rodgers responded to a call from Ukraine’s Elena Pinchuk’s Anti-AIDS Foundation to reach the country’s youth with the message: ‘Don’t let go AIDS Ruins Life” by playing a free “Life Must Go On” AIDS awareness concert on Kharkiv’s historic Freedom Square to a live audience of more than 350,000 – and a television audience of more than 10 million.

The band remembers the event as “an unforgettable experience… one of those rare things in life that you know you’ll never forget.” A meeting in music, but also a coming together to fight against a common enemy…”

“Today, as millions of Ukrainian refugees are in dire need of humanitarian assistance from another ailment, Queen returns to her historic moment with a special YouTube screening to raise funds for UNHCR’s relief efforts.

Queen + Paul Rodgers Live In Ukraine will be broadcast on YouTube on Saturday, March 19 at 10:00 am PDT, 1:00 pm EDT and 5:00 pm GMT.

Rodgers, who has been the lead singer of numerous bands including Free and Bad Company, has worked with the remaining active members of Queen over the years under the moniker Queen + Paul Rodgers.
