‘The Simpsons’ To Recreate Queen’s Iconic Live Aid Performance

This weekend’s episode of “The Simpsons” will be a very special ones for fans of Queen.

According to rock music website Blabbermouth, the Oct. 6 episode will pay tribute to what is arguably the band’s most iconic performance by recreating Queen’s explosive set at Live Aid.

A still from the episode (above) depicts a moustached Homer Simpson, decked out in the same duds frontman Freddie Mercury wore for the benefit concert, standing onstage in what is presumably Wembley Stadium.

While Fox’s synopsis of the episode — titled “Go Big or Go Homer” — doesn’t make any mention of Queen, it does offer a brief description of the plot

“Homer is demoted to supervising interns, among whom is go-getter millennial Mike, a 35-year-old who asks Homer to be his mentor,” the synopsis reads. “However, when Homer inspires Mike to start a business of his own, the two find themselves being chased by the mob.”
