Queen live at Hammersmith.jpg

A photo taken from the concert.

Status: Partially Found

On December 1979, a series of concerts were held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, England for the benefit of the victims of war-torn Cambodia. This series of concerts was called "Concerts for the people of Kampuchea". Queen's performance (which opened the concerts) is only partially available in video form.

Background[edit | edit source]

Then United Nations secretary general Kurt Waldheim approached Paul McCartney in the hopes of staging a reunion concert of The Beatles to raise funds for citizens affected by the wars raging in Cambodia under the reign of Pol Pot.[1] McCartney was put off by the idea of reuniting the group, though, and he instead organized a chain of concerts with appearances of such notable musicians and acts as Queen, The Who, Wings, Elvis Costello, The Clash, and others.

The concert was filmed and broadcast on BBC 1 and multiple audio recordings were made by audience members that have since appeared on bootlegs.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Despite the concert being very well known, for the longest time, bootlegs didn't account for much of the concert; some songs were only partially available, and others were missing in their entirety.

Not all footage is available. Jailhouse Rock, Mustapha, and Bohemian Rhapsody only have a few seconds of video. However, audio sourced from audience recordings do exist.[3][4] There is one official release of this concert, however, it's not a video release and it only has Now I'm Here.[5] Though multiple videos are being used in documentaries (primarily Don't Stop Me Now) the chances of one soon are very good.
