Unseen Queen photos to be exhibited in London

Shots were taken by the classic rockers' head of crew

Queen are the subject of an intimate new photography exhibition in London set to run from the end of July to September.

The Proud Centralgallery in the UK capital will host ‘Queen: The Unseen Archive’: an exhibition comprised of photographs of the rockers taken by Peter Hince, who was head of the band’s crew at the height of their fame.

Most of the shots in the collection have never been exhibited to the public before.

Hince met the band in 1973 while working for Mott The Hoople, who Queen were supporting. He then joined their entourage as a roadie, becoming a close confidante of singer Freddie Mercury and co.

The show runs from July 30 to September 13, with the opening timed to coincide with the anniversary of Freddie Mercury‘s final performance with the band, at Knebworth in 1986.
