Last weekend was just a perfect weekend to be in Kiev. On Sunday they celebrated the final of the Euro, which by the way i want to take advantage of this post to congratulate all the people and players from Spain. But it is not only Football or “Soccer” (how they called it in America), its also good old Rock and Roll in the streets.
Queen returned to the stage Saturday (June 30) in Kiev as part of the ANTIAIDS benefit with Adam Lambert in the fold.
The performance of the band as usual was outstanding, and we will be hoping for a tour and have the opportunity to see this live.
Meanwhile here is the complete show of last Saturday. Enjoy the show.

The 25th anniversary of Queen’s two-night stand at Wembley Stadium in 1986 is being celebrated in a new DVD release. The two-disc set, Queen: Live at Wembley Stadium, will present both the July 11 and 12 concerts in their entirety, for the first time, according to BraveWords.com.
The shows feature some of the rock legends’ biggest hits, with Freddie Mercury leading the boys through “We Will Rock You,” “We are the Champions,” “Under Pressure” and “Another One Bites the Dust.” Both the video and audio have been restored for the new edition, which features a new 5.1 mix. The set also includes a behind-the-scenes featurette that includes new interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor discussing the concerts.
“The Wembley concerts in 1986 were the pinnacle for us,” May said in a press release. “We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None of us realized that this would be almost the last time we played together…”
Queen: Live at Wembley Stadium will be released on September 5, which would have been Mercury’s 65th birthday
Queen guitarist Brian May, a longtime animal-rights activist, is protesting the Peterculter Golf Club in Aberdeen, England, because of its failure to ban a member who bludgeoned a fox with a golf club.
“It’s evident that the vast majority of the British public are disgusted by cruelty to animals, as shown by the public outcry against this particularly senseless piece of brutality,” says May.
Donald Forbes clubbed the fox after it stole his chocolate biscuit, and the animal had to be put to death by another member to put it out of its misery. Forbes was fined $1200 by a court but was reinstated by the country club nine months after the incident.
“The members of this Aberdeen club have the opportunity to show their disapproval in an appropriate way — by banning this unsavory character for life,” adds May. “But they seem to be unready.”
A lawyer for the country club said, “The committee took account of his previous unblemished record over many years of membership. This decision in no way condones Mr Forbes’s actions.”
