Queen + Adam Lambert recreated the band’s legendary 1985 Live Aid set for the first time Sunday (Feb 16) at the Fire Fight Australia benefit concert. The concert benefited those affected by the devastating wildfires in Australia.

The band teased the set earlier in the day, writing, “The six-song set includes Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, Hammer To Fall, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest live performances of all time!”
