Classic Queen Concert Hitting Movie Theaters (Top Story)

On Friday Classic Queen Concert Hitting Movie Theaters was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Queen's concert film, "A Night In Bohemia", will be screened in US theaters on March 8. The project - released last November as "Queen: A Night At The Odeon - Hammersmith 1975" - captures the group in concert at the famed London venue on the final night of a UK tour in support of their fourth album, "A Night At The Opera."

Originally broadcast live on BBC Two's Old Grey Whistle Test, the show features early hits like "Killer Queen", "Liar" and "Keep Yourself Alive", as well as the first ever live recording of "Bohemian Rhapsody."

"This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TVů the Christmas Show," says guitarist Brian May. "The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully."

"The band were in party mood at the Hammersmith Odeon that night and no wonder," explains Old Grey Whistle Test host Bob Harris. "They had already spent the best part of a month at the top of the UK singles chart with the sensational 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' the video for which had instantly redefined the presentation of music on TV.

"They were at the peak of their powers - confident and stage sharp at the end of a barnstorming UK tour. I donned top hat and tails to salute and introduce them before they played one of the best sets I had ever seen. It was an incredible night but it was more even than that. It was the moment Queen became superstars." Read more and check out the trailer and a video from the concert - here.
