Queen, ‘We will Rock You’ (LR6)
Over 40 Years of Regal Rock! It’s a ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’! (PM) Afternoon Tour on select Wednesdays
Queen still rule! Over forty-years from their foundation the band are being discovered by yet another generation who have seen the Oscar-winning, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ bio-pic starring Rami Malek, and their popularity with original fans is undiminished.
Queen are a London band. Formed here, cut their teeth here, recorded their music here, played their seminal gigs here, lived, partied and in Freddie’s case, died here. Our memorable tour focuses on landmark sites and locations in the band’s history. It’s a real life journey through the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ film. Of all our tours, this one probably takes you through the prettiest and wealthiest of London’s neighbourhoods, and following their journey from college kids to ascending rock royalty’s throne. Fittingly, this takes us past a lot of London’s real royal sites like Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace.
Kensington is home to the university where the band was formed; studios where they recorded; band member’s homes, including the house where Freddie lived and died. Pass famed gigs sites like Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall, locations where some of the great videos were shot, and the site of the last ever Queen performance.
