Queen have announced their plans to stream the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert this week.
The event, which took place on 20 April 1992 at Wembley Stadium, was devised to celebrate the late frontman's legacy and raise money for AIDS research, after Mercury tragically died of complications from the disease the year before.
Now, the gig - which featured everyone from Guns N' Roses to David Bowie, is now getting an exclusive screening for two days from Friday 15 May to help raise funds for the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 relief fund. Find out how to watch it here.

It's not the only thing the legendary rockers have been doing to support coronavirus relief efforts.
Brian May and Roger Taylor recently released You Are The Champions, along with their touring singer Adam Lambert.
The classic anthem, originally titled We Are The Champions, was released with some subtle changes, with all funds going towards the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organisation.
At the start of the video, the artists pay tribute to healthcare workers and those on the frontline, with words which read: "To all you frontline warriors fighting coronavirus around the world..."
The video itself sees them interspersed with shots of empty streets and landmarks across the globe, frontline workers and those social distancing from all walks of life.
