About / Exhibition
A new exhibition capturing the history of Queen through Sir Brian May's own Stereoscopic (3-D) camera lenses.
From an early age Brian travelled with a stereo (3-D) camera in hand, so on Queen tours and during recordings he was able to capture rare behind-the-scenes moments of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Decades later these are now being shared for the first time to the public exhibition in an extensive exhibition.
Some of the pictures were taken on stage; others behind the scenes, including informal shots taken on the road and during leisure time, giving close-up glimpses of the band as never seen before. Freddie, an enigmatic character, fiercely protective of his privacy, usually shied away from being photographed off stage. However here we see how he interacted playfully and unselfconsciously with Brian’s camera, and we catch rare glimpses of this consummate showman as viewed by his band mate and close friend.
The exhibition also includes stereoscopic photos taken by fans of modern day Queen with the fantastic, flamboyant Adam Lambert as the frontman and captures the wonders of the hit musical We Will Rock You as seen through Brian’s eyes.
The magic of Queen Will Rock You in 3-D is that the images will be brought to life in three dimension with the ingenious OWL stereoscopy viewer designed by Brian himself.
About / We Will Rock You the musical
The hit musical returns, just down the road from Proud Galleries:
It has been 21 years since We Will Rock You premiered at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2002, where it was seen by six million people over 4600 performances during an astonishing 12-year run, becoming one of the most successful musicals in West End history and the longest runner at the Dominion by a margin of nine years. It also found unprecedented popularity around the world, playing to a global audience of 20 million across 28 countries. Featuring 24 of Queen’s greatest hits and a hilarious script by Ben Elton, We Will Rock You succeeds in its promise of delivering a rocking good night revisiting one of the greatest songbooks in history. Now Queen and Ben Elton’s sensational smash hit show returns to London for a historic, strictly limited 12-week residency at the London Coliseum from 2 June to the 27 August.
'I’m thrilled we finally have this opportunity to put We Will Rock You back on stage in London, where it was born. It will be a completely new production that will burst on to the prestigious London Coliseum stage. We WILL Rock You – again!!' Sir Brian May
