"Music legends Queen and Elton John will give a show in Kiev to support people with AIDS on June 30 in the run-up to the EURO-2012 finals hosted by Ukraine. This comes from the head of the Anti-AIDS foundation Elena Pinchuk who met with reporters in Kiev on June 7.
According to her, the performers will sing for free."

Why is Queenonline so far behind with announcements like this, still nothing on the bands official website yet it's in the forum :?

Elton's going to be doing half of an approximately 4 hour show. I assume he will close.

He did sound like he was still fairly ill at the Jubiliee, his nose was totally conjested and you could tell in his enunciation. True, he's not the singer he used to be, but still a great entertainer. And this is a great cause.

I agree! Adam had a nice connection with Elton at Elton's Academy Awards party in L.A., sitting at his table with Katy Perry. There were lots of pictures of all of them hugging each other, so I would say that Adam and Elton are pretty good buddies at this point in time.

Good buddies may be a little hyperbolic, but Elton seems to like Adam. IIRC, Elton is supportive of young performers that he likes.

For 65, he is one seriously busy man. Concert in Germany the night before. And Elton daily lists his annual White Tie Ball on the 28th.

This makes quite a lot of sense now. Isn't this the same Lady / Ukrainian Aids charity that organised the Queen + Paul Rodgers concert in Kiev at the start of the 2008 tour.

Hopefully this means it might also get a DVD release at a later date like the Q+PR gig.

Now it makes sense why they moved the Moscow date.

Queen + Elton John to play in Kiev on June 30th

Legendary singer Elton John and a British rock band Queen will hold a charitable anti-AIDS concert on the Independence Square before the Euro 2012 European Football Championship final.

"Elton John and rock band Queen will play to support the fight against AIDS, here, on Independence Square," Head of the ANTIAIDS Foundation Olena Pinchuk said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

The ANTIAIDS Foundation, with the assistance of UEFA, will organize the concert. The concert will be entitled "Your Life is Not a Game. Let's Stop AIDS Together!" It will begin on June 30 at 2000 and will last until midnight.

According to Pinchuk, Elton John and Queen refused payment for the performance.

The concert will take place on the stage in the fan zone on the Independence Square.

"We will not build anything special," she said.

The concert will consist of two parts, admission will be free of charge, and in addition, the concert will be broadcast live.

Pinchuk assumed that Elton John and Queen could attend the final match of Euro 2012 and said that she did not know whether they would attend the closing ceremony of the championship.

During the concert, the foundation will raise funds for a new joint project of Elton John's and Olena Pinchuk's anti-AIDS foundations.

This is more like it! :bigups:
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Yes, I do, I was hoping for ages for another concert of this nature. Long overdue if you ask me.
I'm not against Q+AL, but I still don't think he can sing rock...that is my main issue.
