The Global Citizen Festival looked to be a fantastic day, broadcast by MSNBC. The lineup was stellar and the crowd was over 60,000. If anyone was there, please chime in!
As headliners, Queen + Adam Lambert showed everyone why they still wear the crown. They performed 13 songs, giving the audience more than half of their regular concert. They also played more than twice as long as any other band yesterday, going 20 minutes overtime. Thank goodness MSNBC covered it all. It was so cool to see how excited some of the people in the crowd were, watching them!
I’m posting the videos straight from Global Citizen’s YouTube channel, including their intro by Rami Malek. You could tell how excited Rami was to introduce these legends. So excited he pulled the microphone away from his mouth right when he says QUEEN, but he covered it up! Global Citizen posted all but one number, Don’t Stop Me Now which another fan posted a short segment of it, so I’ve included it. We’re also missing the Ay-Oh audience response with Freddie.
Hope you watched and loved it like we did!

The encore came now, starting with a film of Freddie Mercury doing a round of Ay-Oh with a past audience. I couldn’t find that so we’ll move on to their 2 iconic show closers!
