Green Day concert goers in London united in song.
As news comes from the world of cinema that a Freddie Mercury bio-pic is in the works, the impact of the prolific singer was exemplified to a chilling degree at a Green Day concert on July 1.
A crowd of over 65,000 people were eagerly awaiting the stage arrival of Green Day at London’s Hyde Park.
During the wait, organizers began piping in Queen’s classic song “Bohemian Rhapsody” over the sound system, and as expected concert-goers joined in with a goosebump raising tribute.
From beginning to end, the spectators raised their voices in unison and even hummed the signature guitar riffs.
Almost a week ago, Queen’s official website announced that they had approved the making of the band’s history including a stamp of approval on Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek to play the legendary Mercury.
Said the band, "Rami has great presence and he’s utterly dedicated to the project. He’s completely living and breathing Freddie already, which is wonderful.”
Helming the project is X-Men and Usual Suspects director Bryan Singer.
Queen members Brian May and Roger Tyler will produce the film although there is no word yet on who will play their parts.
