Legendary British rockers Queen will perform at London's Live 8 concert thanks to a live satellite link-up.The legends - who starred in the original Live Aid extravaganza 20 years ago - are busy performing in Portugal on July 2 when the Hyde Park charity event takes place.
But Queen is so keen to play at the historic event; they are arranging a spectacular satellite connection to join British fans at the star-studded line up.
Live 8 spokesman Phil Symes says, "The band is playing an outdoor concert on the same day. They are discussing being featured at Live 8 on a big screen."
Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon and Paul Rodgers - the ex-Free and Bad Company singer who replaced the band's late frontman Freddie Mercury - will 'virtually' perform alongside other A-list celebrities including Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey and Elton John.
