THE WHO star ROGER DALTREY and former SPICE GIRLS singer MELANIE CHISHOLM were among the famous faces who turned out to honor late QUEEN frontman FREDDIE MERCURY at a charity gig marking his 67th birthday.
The Queen AIDS Benefit in support of The Mercury Phoenix Trust took place in London on Thursday night (05Sep13) and a host of stars turned out for the event to help raise money to fight AIDS, including Monty Python's Eric Idle, funnyman Stephen Fry and singer Pixie Lott, as well as Queen star Brian May.
Daltrey and Chisholm were among the performers, along with classical star Alfie Boe.
The evening also included an auction to raise money for The Mercury Phoenix Trust, the charity set up after Mercury's death in 1991, and prizes sold off included a signed photo of Katy Perry dressed up as the famous singer, a guitar owned by Taylor Swift, and a trip to New York to meet Robert De Niro.
After the event, Chisholm tweeted, "I feel such a lucky girl having the chance to honor the great Freddie Mercury last night... Thank you!!!" while May posted a picture from the gala and added, "Freddie's party tonight in Mayfair. Thanks to all!"
He adds in a message to Chisholm, "Thanks so much for tonight, dear Mel. You sure DID do Freddie justice !!! You're just great. Respects! And love (sic)."
