Daltrey fronts Queen AIDS benefit

The Who singer Roger Daltrey heads a lineup of rock and comedy big names for Queen’s annual AIDS benefit show at London’s One Mayfair on September 5.

The date would have been Freddie Mercury’s 67th birthday – and to mark it, fans are asked to dress as the late frontman to raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, set up in his honour after his memorial concert in 1992.

Organisers say: “From a simple moustache to a full head-to-toe ensemble, a fancy dress party to a Freddie flash mob, anything goes… as long as each person dressing up asks family and friends to sponsor them to do so to help raise funds for the cause.”

Hard Rock Cafes across the world will be involved in the initiative on the day. View comedian Matt Lucas’ Freddie For A Day message below – and find out more.
