This is the moment a brother and sister in COVID-19 lockdown recreate Queen’s iconic Live Aid performance from their balcony to the cheers of their neighbours.

The mock concert was performed by siblings Toni and Laura Alemany in the city of Palma in Majorca in the Spanish Balearic Islands and the footage has been widely shared on social media.

In the video, Toni and Laura are seen recreating Queen’s legendary Live Aid performance, considered one of the greatest concerts of all times, on their balcony.

They also recreated other famous Queen moments such as the ionic music video for ‘I Want to Break Free’.

Laura told Newsflash: “Toni has always been a lover of rock music and, thanks to UK radio, he knew a lot of Queen’s hits, however he fell in love with the band after watching the movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and the real Live Aid concert.

“During the lockdown, and after seeing so many people performing shows from their balconies, he decided to recreate the legendary concert at home.”

She added: “Our main goal was to have some fun with the neighbours who we have got to know very well since the lockdown.

“There was a lot of applause and we saw many neighbours dancing and enjoying the music who are not seen in the video, but they are there.”

However, despite going down a storm with their neighbours, the siblings said that they do not plan to follow up the show.

According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Spain has registered 184,948 cases of COVID-19 and 19,315 related deaths.
