Popiconic Moments 2. Live Aid. ............................................................................................................................ On the 13th July 1985, after a few technical problems, mediocre performances from stars new and old, Queen were due on. Queen galvanised the stadium with some of their greatest hits Freddie Mercury at times led the entire crowd of 72,000 in thundering unison refrains. In their 20 minute set the band opened with "Bohemian Rhapsody" and closed with "We Are the Champions". Being true professionals they had extensively rehearsed their performance, and then before taking the stage Queen's sound engineer covertly switched out the limiters on the venue's sound system so the performance would be louder than the others. Queen's performance on that day has since been voted by more than 60 artists, journalists and music industry executives as the greatest live performance in the history of rock music. The painting is the moment that Freddie, with the Live Aid Logo behind him, turns to acknowledge the audience, and the Popiconic Moment when nearly 2 billion TV watchers knew that thousands of starving African people weren’t going to die after all.
