Is this the real life, or is it just fantasy!?
Back in January we were asked by long time Rockaoke fan, Dexter Fletcher (film director) if we could come along to The Bloomsbury Ballroom and play at the wrap party for Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ biopic.
It was a slightly surreal night, what with us being in the same room and playing in front of total rock legends Brain May and Roger Taylor. This was made even more surreal by Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury in the film, slaying through Queen songs ‘Tie Your Mother Down’ and ‘Under Pressure’ with all the Freddie mannerisms down to a tee.
And come the end of the night, when the grand finale was upon us, it could only have been one song………Bohemian Rhapsody, led by Oscar winning film producer Graham King. The perfect way to sign off from one of the craziest nights in Rockaoke history.
The official film trailer is out now. From what we saw on the night, it’s going to be amazing.
