Arena di Verona
Arena di Verona - Lo Spettacolo Sta Per Iniziare
The show was opened by Brian May, Kerry Ellis and Vittorio Grigolo with a performance of 'Who Wants To Live Forever' featuring the arena choir and an orchestra. After an hour Brian May returned to the stage introduced by a video from 'Live Aid': with Kerry Ellis and the orchestra he performed 'No One But You' (he sang the second verse without his guitar and finished the song on his Red Special). After that (and with his acoustic 12-string guitar) Brian introduced 'Somebody To Love' and Kerry Ellis sang the entire song. They finished their performance playing 'We Will Rock You' (with the orchestra) and a beautiful version of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (Vittorio Grigolo on lead vocals, Kerry Ellis on vocals featuring the orchestra and a gospel ensemble). The performance was broadcasted on television two days later (on June 3). (Apart from some minor cuts at the end there was no other editing or overdubbing).
