On December 1979, a series of concerts featuring Queen, The Clash, The Who, etc. were held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, England; for the benefit of the victims of war-torn Cambodia. These series of concerts were called "Concerts for the people of Kampuchea".

Background[edit | edit source]

The events were organized by Paul McCartney and Kurt Waldheim 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]

The concert was filmed and broadcasted on BBC 1, and multiple audio recordings were made by audience members that have since appeared on bootlegs.[2]

Wing's performance on December 29th would end the group's final tour and mark the group's final concert.[3]

Availability[edit | edit source]

Despite the concert being very well known, for the longest time, bootleggers had only partial footage at their disposal; lacking parts of some songs, some of which didn't even appear at all.

All of the footage from the concert was remastered and used in the film Queen - A Night At The Odeon, which was released to coincide with the release of the live album A Night at the Odeon – Hammersmith 1975.[2]
