Freddie Mercury Gorilla Returns After Facelift

(hennemusic) The Freddie Mercury gorilla has returned to Norwich following a facelift requested by the estate of the late Queen singer. The gorilla has retained his original clothes but his face has been changed to resemble that of a real-life gorilla, according to Norfolk Eastern Daily Press.

The Freddie gorilla was removed last week after organizers of Go Go Gorillas! were contacted by the Freddie Mercury Estate; the two parties have since been in discussions to resolve the situation.

"It will be nice to have him back out there," said organizer Martin Green. "We have worked with the Freddie Mercury Estate to make some alterations.

"Our artist has carried out the work and design which was agreed by all parties, and we have got the best outcome possible which considers the wishes of the Freddie Mercury Estate." Check out before and after photos here.
