A Night in Bohemia – QUEEN Live at Hammersmith 1975

 

Queen-A-Night-in-BohemiaFilmed live on Christmas Eve 1975 at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, and bringing to a climax the most eventful and exciting year so far in the band’s career, this ground-breaking concert was transmitted live on BBC Two’s Old Grey Whistle Test and captured the band firing on all cylinders as they performed breakthrough hits like Killer Queen, Liar, Keep Yourself Alive and Now I’m Here, as well as the now monumental classic Bohemian Rhapsody. This special cinema event includes a never-before-seen documentary featuring archive footage and interviews with all four members of the band, offering an illuminating insight into the game-changing year of 1975.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes this unique concert film to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia, available from 28 February 2016.

“This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TV … the Christmas Show,” said Brian May in a statement. “The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully.”

Says Bob Harris of that night: “Christmas eve 1975 marked an important moment in the history of the ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’ and Queen. The band were in party mood at the Hammersmith Odeon that night and no wonder. They had already spent the best part of a month at the top of the UK singles chart with the sensational ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the video for which had instantly redefined the presentation of music on TV.

“They were at the peak of their powers – confident and stage sharp at the end of a barnstorming UK tour. I donned top hat and tails to salute and introduce them before they played one of the best sets I had ever seen. It was an incredible night but it was more even than that. It was the moment Queen became superstars.”
