News > Q+PR 'Live' In Vue Cinemas - Next Monday Dec 1st

Added on 28-Nov-2008

Vue Entertainment are giving fans across the UK the chance to see a

spectacular one off charity concert featuring Queen + Paul Rodgers in

support of an AntiAids campaign.



‘Let the Cosmos Rock’, will be screened at 39 Vue sites across the country

for one night only on World Aids Day, Monday, December 1st, 2008.



Tickets for Vue cinema screenings are on sale now and can be bought from

www.myvue.com/queen by calling 08712 240 240, or directly from

participating cinemas. See list below.



The concert drew a record audience of 350,000 people and was captured for

the big screen by award winning film-maker David Mallet. Filmed in high

definition with 5.1 surround sound, the sound and visuals are of the

highest quality available in cinemas today.



Queen and Paul Rodgers made a special trip to Ukraine on September 12th

2008 to play a two and a half hour free concert in Kharkov’s Freedom Square

in partnership with The Elena Franchuk ANTIAIDS Foundation. The band wanted

to support the cause whose message “Don’t let AIDS ruin your life” has

special meaning for them after lead vocalist Freddie Mercury lost his

battle with the virus.



Concert director David Mallet said:

“The big screen setting is an ideal medium in which to feel a sense of

participation in the Kharkov event. This was by far the biggest show of its

kind ever staged. The equipment needed two Antonov 124 aircraft – the

world’s biggest cargo planes – to get it into the Ukraine, and it is almost

impossible to imagine the scale of it once it was built. You would never

get a sense of that on television or DVD, which is why it had to be made

for the biggest of screens.”
