Is has been announced that a recording of Queen‘s Christmas Eve 1975 tour finale at Hammersmith Odeon is to be screened in March for one night only.
Showing at various cinemas across the country, Queen: One Night in Bohemia will screen at 200 different cinemas across the country on March 7 from 7pm, in conjunction with Fathom Events.
The fabled gig – considered to be one of Queen’s finest – was part of their sell out ‘A Night At The Opera’ album tour, with the footage originally appearing on BBC music series The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1975. You can watch the official trailer for the film below.
“Christmas Eve 1975 marked an important moment in the history of the Old Grey Whistle Test and Queen,” Old Grey Whistle Test host Bob Harris said to Rolling Stone. “The band were in party mood at the Hammersmith Odeon that night and no wonder. 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.”
