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), has only been partially found on video.

Background

Then United Nations secretary general Kurt Waldheim approached Paul McCartney in the hopes of staging a reunion concert of The Beatles in order to raise funds for the citizens who were affected by the wars raging in Cambodia as a result of the reign of Pol Pot.[1]. Although McCartney was dismayed by the idea of reuniting with his former band-mates, he organized the chain of concerts with appearances of such notable musicians and acts as Queen, The Who, Wings, McCartney's group; Elvis Costello, The Clash, and others.

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

Wing's performance on December 29th would end the group's final tour and mark the group's final concert.[2]
