QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS headed a massive outdoor concert on September 12 in one of Europe's biggest public squares ahead of the start of their European tour to support Ukraine's Anti-AIDS campaign.

Promoting the message "Don't let AIDS to ruin your life!", QUEEN performed a free concert in Kharkov's historic Freedom Square. The concert attracted more than 100,000 to Europe's second-largest city-centre square.

Watch professionally filmed video footage of the show below.

Supported by QUEEN's own HIV AIDS charity, The Mercury Phoenix Trust, the free concert was organized by the Elena Franchuk ANTIAIDS Foundation and is being devoted to the fight against AIDS in the Ukraine.

Coming just a week after the birthday of their lost lead singer — Freddie Mercury, who died of AIDS in 1991 — the concert aimed to reinforce the message of the Ukrainian ANTIAIDS Foundation that the need to protect ourselves and our families remains as urgent as ever.

The concert was broadcast live on Ukraine's Noviy channel which reached into homes right across the country. It was a prelude to the launch the following day on the national channel of a new five year ANTIADS campaign, "On the Edge" being fronted by the Elena Franchuk Foundation which aims to tackle head-on the growing threat of HIV AIDS infection in the country.
