Queen To Perform At Live 8 Via Satellite!Legendary British rockers QUEEN will perform at London's LIVE 8 concert thanks to a live satellite link-up.
The WE WILL ROCK YOU legends - who starred in the original LIVE AID extravaganza 20 years ago 1985 - are busy performing in Portugal on July 2, 2005 when the Hyde Park charity show takes place.
But Queen are 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 are playing an outdoor concert on the same day. They are discussing featuring at Live 8 on a big screen."
BRIAN MAY, ROGER TAYLOR, JOHN DEACON and PAUL RODGERS - the ex-FREE and BAD COMPANY singer who is currently fronting for the band's late frontman FREDDIE MERCURY - will 'virtually' perform alongside other A-list celebrities including SIR PAUL McCARTNEY, MARIAH CAREY and SIR ELTON JOHN.
