STILL ON YOUTUBE - Special YouTube screening of Queen's 2008 Ukraine concert - fundraiser

Last edited Sat Mar 19, 2022, 08:16 PM - Edit history (3)

I heard this mentioned on ABC's morning news show. YouTube link below.

From Queen's website, where you can also find the track listing:

Editing because the link to Queen's website has been changed to this:

Queen + Paul Rodgers: Live In Ukraine 2008 YouTube Special - Raising funds for Ukraine Relief


In support of Ukraine, Queen is returning to its historic Kharkiv concert with a YouTube special screening aimed at raising funds for Ukraine Relief.

Special YouTube Premiere Screening - Saturday, March 19th at 10AM PST / 1PM EST / 5PM GMT @



In September 2008 Queen + Paul Rodgers answered a call from Ukraine’s Elena Pinchuk AntiAids Foundation to reach out to the youth of the country with the message “Don’t Let AIDS Ruin Your Life” by playing a free Life Must Go On Aids awareness concert performed in Ukraine’s second-largest city Kharkiv’s historic Freedom Square to a live audience of over 350,000 – and a television audience of more than 10 million.

Today, with millions of Ukrainian refugees in need of urgent humanitarian relief from a different affliction, Queen is returning to that historic moment with a YouTube special screening aimed at drawing donations for UNHCR relief efforts.

Please make your donations to UNHCR - The UN Refugee Agency.

I'd planned to go shopping later today, but finding out about this YouTube screening changed those plans.

announced yesterday, and I sometimes check Paul Rodgers' Twitter account since he's one of my favorite singers, but I've been so busy checking Twitter for news on Ukraine that I hadn't looked at any of his posts for weeks.

I wish I'd known yesterday. Might've set an alarm to get up earlier and take care of that shopping before the concert airs on YouTube.

Btw, the reviews I've seen of the concert DVD have been really good.

I will enjoy the concert. I'm glad I was watching ABC this morning at that moment (I channel surf a lot during morning news shows). Probably wouldn't have found out in time otherwise.

I've been wondering for a while now, wth happened to globally-focused music?

It's all "I-me-gimmie," from what I've heard of newer music.

Maybe it's the market I'm in. Redneck hell. 😓

So I'm relying on the TV.

Great start to the concert...

at the end, looking at how happy the thousands of people -- 350,000 there for the concert -- were, and thinking of the hell they're going through right now.

They ended the concert with "We Are The Champions" -- and nothing could fit the people of Ukraine more.

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world
