Queen played their iconic set list from “Live Aid 1985” at yesterday’s Fire Fight Australia Benefit.

The performance occurred on February 16 in Sydney, Australia and also featured sets from Alice Cooper, Olivia Newton-John, and more. Queen decided to play their six-song medley from “Live Aid” for the first time since that classic 1985 performance. An animation of Freddie Mercury was featured on-screen during his famous “Ay-oh” call while current Queen singer Adam Lambert sang all of the songs.

The show generated $9.5 million to benefit the communities that were affected by Australia’s brushfires.
