SEOUL, May 17 (Korea Bizwire) — British rock band Queen will hold its first solo concerts in South Korea, where the biopic film “Bohemian Rhapsody” was a sensation, next year, organizers said Friday.
Hyundai Card Co. said its “Super Concert 25 QUEEN” will take place at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Jan. 18-19.
The Seoul concerts will be part of the band’s “The Rhapsody Tour” set to kick off in July and its first performance in South Korea since their participation in the Super Sonic music festival in 2014.
Formed in 1971, the four-member British rock band led by lead singer Freddie Mercury has released a number of studio albums and numerous chart-topping songs, including “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions.”
Since Mercury’s death, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor have toured with vocalist Adam Lambert.
Along with its global success, the film “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which depicts the life of Mercury, has attracted more than 9 million moviegoers in South Korea.
