Brian May has shared an image of the incredible staging of the 1985 benefit concert, which has been re-modelled for their forthcoming Bohemian Rhapsody film.
The Live Aid stage has been recreated for Queen's upcoming Bohemian Rhapsody film.
It was previously reported that the biopic - which will tell the story of Freddie Mercury and the We Will Rock You outfit - will be released in 2018, and now we've been given a sneak peek of what's in store.
Guitarist Brian May has taken to Twitter to post a picture, which is captioned: "LIVE AID LIVES AGAIN It's a Miracle ! IG'd for Bo Rhap the Movie !!! We are ON ! #queenwillrock#bohemianrhapsodythemovie#liveaid - Bri".
The 1985 dual-venue benefit gig, which was founded by Bob Geldof and Ultravox frontman Midge Ure to raise funds for the famine in Ethiopia, saw Queen play one of their most memorable and iconic performances at Wembley Stadium.
The concert - which also played host to the likes of David Bowie, The Style Council, Spandau Ballet, Sting, Elton John, Phil Collins and U2 - went down in history as the biggest charity show, and one of the largest scale television broadcasts of all time.
