Days Of Our Lives – Part Two

Part two of Days of Our Lives follows the incredible, emotional roller coaster ride that Queen embarked on over their second decade – once again full of stunning musical performances, previously unseen and rare footage (including Freddie’s last filmed moment), and intimate interviews. With the ultimate showman in Freddie Mercury and a string of rock anthems to their name, Queen smashed attendance records with a series of stadium shows across South America. But the band quickly learned that if reaching the top is tough, staying there is the biggest challenge of all.

A loss of focus in the studio, the decline in popularity with North America, increasing internal tension and a blossoming desire to pursue solo projects, it seemed as if the band had had its day. Then came that performance from Freddie at Live Aid, and their record breaking ‘Magic’ tour in 1986. Queen were rightly propelled back amongst the very best. Rejuvenated, the world was once again at their feet, but then tragedy strikes and threatens to tear the band apart.
