A Great Tribute
25 December 2000 | by abababab41See all my reviews

Not many have sold out Wembley Stadium for a tribute concert. This is a concert in memory of a dynamic performer of the name Farok Bulsara (otherwise known as Freddie Mercury). Freddie is the greatest Asian star the world has seen. On top of that, he is one the greatest voices in rock history. The concert is filled with lots of treats. If you're a fan of any of the artists featured on this video, then go out and rent it, you won't be dissappointed. For Queen fans, it's a "must-view" video. What more can I say, it's a truly spectacular event.
