BBC Shows the Last Performance by Freddie Mercury


AlbumBritain's BBC has aired a special program with video from Freddie Mercury's final performance before his untimely death.

Mercury appeared on the BBC and performed a solo version of Queen’s These Are The Days Of Our Lives. The frail looking Freddie is seen in the footage having his make-up applied and checking his appearance before performing the song.

Comedian Rhys Thomas had the footage in his archive. He was the co-producer of the documentary Queen: Days Of Our Lives.

Freddie was yet to announce he was suffering from the AIDS virus when the show was filmed. He only announced his disease publically the day before he died.

The BBC documentary also features footage of the making of the Radio Ga Ga video and the band talking after the controversy that arose from their I Want To Break Free video.

The show aired in the UK on BBC 2.
