“When you’re through with life and all hope is lost;
Hold out your hand ’cause right till the end
friends will be friends”

35 years ago, 15 May, 1986 – Queen shot their incredible ‘Friends Will Be Friends’ video. It was directed by Rudi Dolezal and Hanness Rossacher (DoRo Productions) @ JVC Studios, Wembley, London.

The Official International Queen Fan Club invited approximately 850 Queen fans to make up an audience for what is, in essence, an amazing performance video.

During the show, Freddie Mercury “high fives” audience members, and at the end cuts the mic and sings along with them, letting them lead. Because of this, this performance was nicknamed “𝐐𝐮𝐞𝐞𝐧’𝐬 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐒𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐍𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐞𝐝”.

A beautiful song about friendship, written by Freddie Mercury and John Deacon, it is one of the last of Freddie’s piano ballads.

All of the fans were given a t-shirt printed with the slogan “I am a Queen Friend”. To have been part of that special audience and having fun with Freddie and the boys, Seriously, how exciting!

‘Friends Will Be Friends’ is the fifth track from Queens twelfth studio album, ‘A Kind of Magic’ which was released in June 1986. The fabulous album was an immediate hit in the UK, going straight to number one and selling 100,000 copies in the first week. It remained on the charts for an impressive 63 weeks!
