News > Queen at Mandela concert

Added on 27-Jun-2008

The last act of the night - Queen with Paul Rodgers - proved they really saved the best for last. After rip-roaring renditions of One Vision and The Show Must Go On, they brought out the big guns.

Nearly 50,000 pairs or clapping and outstretched arms synchronised to the drum beat of We Will Rock You. It really was a sight to behold.

They ended their set of Queen songs with the anthemic We Are the Champions. Everyone was singing at the top of their voices and swaying their arms.

The night sky lit up with lights from flashing cameras at the end of the song - these guys really know how to rock.

They finished up with Free's All Right Now, with the crowd jumping around singing their hearts out.

I've never been to an event before where 50,000 people all sing in unison, but it really was breathtaking
