SEOUL, Dec. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — “Bohemian Rhapsody”, a biopic based on the true story of the legendary Freddie Mercury and Queen, is gaining popularity not just at movie theaters, but also in concert halls.
Stomp Music, a production company, will host “Bohemian Rhapsody – For Queen”, an orchestral concert, at Lotte Concert Hall in Seoul on March 17.
The concert will feature orchestral rearrangements of Queen’s all-time favorites, including ‘Love of My Life’, ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘We Will Rock you’, and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
Yoonhan, a pianist and singer/songwriter, will also make an appearance.
“The concert will bring together the popular appeal of pop and the grandeur of classical music,” said Stomp Music. “Spectators will be able to enjoy the heat of a rock concert at a classical music hall.”
The Bohemians, a Queen tribute band, will go on a tour of South Korea starting next January. The Bohemians is a British band with over 20 years of experience recreating songs by Queen.
The success of singalongs for “Bohemian Rhapsody” at the theater had others adopt similar practices. “The Gwanghwamun Love Song”, a South Korean musical, recently did singalongs with the audience during the curtain call.
They sang famous songs by Lee Moon-sae, a popular singer in South Korea.
