“Friends Will Be Friends” is a song performed by Queen and written by Freddie Mercury and John Deacon, included on the album A Kind of Magic. It was the band’s 30th single in the UK upon its release on 9 June 1986, reaching number 14 in the UK.
“Friends Will Be Friends” was performed live on The Magic Tour. It is remarkable that it was the first and only song that was sung at the end of concerts between “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” since the News of the World Tour in 1977.
