Video Comparison Of Queen’s 1985 ‘Live Aid’ Show With The Remake In ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Hong Kong video editor This Game Is Easy edited the original video of Queen’s brilliant Live Aid performance with the new Bohemian Rhapsody movie’s version, and yet another reason why I love the internet. The editor writes, “I recently saw Bohemian Rhapsody in theaters and right as the Live Aid part started I was so surprised at how accurate it is to the original live performance. I wanted to compare it side by side but noticed it doesn’t work well as half the songs are cut and the songs are edited so I decided to make a comparison.”

According to Deadline, audiences remain in love with Bohemian Rhapsody, giving it an A CinemaScore, 88% overall positive, and four-and-half stars on Screen Engine/ComScore’s PostTrak, topped off with a super-definite recommend of 75%. Overall demos for Bohemian Rhapsody are 51% female, 49% male, with 77% over 25, 31% over 45, 52% under 35, with the single largest quad being 25-34 at 26%. Which means Queen just made a whole new batch of fans this weekend, including a large group who weren’t even alive when Live Aid happened in 1985.
