Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out, yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time

Of the many milestones belonging to the band Queen throughout their legendary career, their performance at Live Aid back in 1985 is without a doubt one of the most iconic. Recently, Rami Malek, Joesph Mazzello, Allen Leech and Gwilym Lee suited up in their finest Queen-wear to recreate one of the most unforgettable moments of the band's history for the upcoming film BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

After taking the stage located in Buckinghamshire, England, those in attendance caught an eyeful of Malek rocking out in a white tank top, tight, blue denim jeans complete with a studded black belt and a stylishly studded armband. As he marched about the stage, Malek was seen swiveling his hips and raising his fist high above his head – transforming himself into a near-perfect mirror image of the late Freddie Mercury. Additionally, original and current Queen guitarist Brain May was there to witness the performance, as he looked on at the band's display from off-center-stage. There was even a point in the shoot when Malek sat at a piano, where he keyed out sections of "Bohemian Rhapsody," one of Queen's most memorable tunes.

You can check out the photos of Rami Malek rocking out as Freddie Mercury below:

Would you just look at the face Brain May is making? What a trip it must have been to see that show recreated right in front of his eyes.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, which recently added comedian Mike Meyers to the cast, will chronicle the years leading up to Queen's timeless performance at Live Aid 1985. The film is expected rock n' roll its way into theaters on December 25, 2018.
