About the project
When it comes to taking on logic-defying challenges, Queen have never fought shy: think Hyde Park, Latin America, Live Aid. All these years later, Queen are still living adventurously.Just weeks ahead of the start of the Queen + Paul Rodgers tour in 2008 Elena Pinchuk ANTIAIDS Foundation invited the band to visit Ukraine and to reach out to the youth of the country with the message: "Life must go on! Don't let AIDS ruin your life". In a country facing the highest rising rate of infection throughout Europe, it is a message which cannot wait. "We are coming in Ukraine to say: "We have suffered the great loss of our dear singer Freddie Mercury - we hope this kind of loss does not happen to you. Be kind to yourselves - be careful - be alive!" - musicians appealed to the Ukrainians.
The venue on offer was Kharkov, Ukraine's, historic Freedom Square, a place so big that during World War II it was used to land planes. Over 350,000 Ukrainians came to see them play and more than 10 million homes watched the show live on television. In all, more than 20 million took part in what the band recall as "an unforgettable experience... one of those rare things in life you know you will never forget. A meeting in Music, but also a coming together to fight a common enemy..."
Magic of that outstanding night at the Freedom Square conquer the Europe. On December, 1, at the World AIDS Day, the unique demonstration of the cinema version of the concert will take place in 100 cinemas of the Europe. Only in Great Britain concert will be demonstrated on more than 40 screens. In November special concert release was released on 300 screens in the USA. Cinema version of the concert screened over 30 Ukrainian cinemas equipped with HD-video system (E-Cinema, Dolby ProLogic 5.1)
