NME Festival blog: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ sing-a-long experience launched in cinemas across the UK


Now you can be your own version of Freddie Mercury

Fans of Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody can now sing-a-long to the movie in cinemas across the UK.

The film, which sees Rami Malek playing the late Freddie Mercury, was released at the end of October and has now grossed over $600 million (£478 million) at the box office worldwide. $175 million (£139 million) of that figure was made in the US alone, meaning the film has now raked in more profits than The Greatest Showman.

Now in these new sing-a-long screenings, lyrics will be shown on screen and attendees are encouraged to join in with hits such as the movie’s title track, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘We Are The Champions’ and more.

Cineworld, Vue, Showcase and Everyman cinemas are just some of the locations hosting the event, starting January 11. You see the full list of participating cinemas and book tickets here.

Last month it was revealed that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is the most streamed song from the 20th century.

The iconic 1975 song, taken from ‘A Night At The Opera’, surpassed a staggering 1.6 billion streams globally across all major streaming services on December 10. The song has enjoyed enduring success in over 40 years of release, but it received a huge boost in late 2018 after the release of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie.

The British rock icons are also able to boast that the famous track is the most-streamed Classic Rock song of all time.

Queen guitarist Brian May said: “So the River of Rock Music has metamorphosed into streams! Very happy that our music is still flowing to the max!”

Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, said: “‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one the greatest songs by one of the greatest artists in history. We are so proud to represent Queen and are thrilled to see the song still inspiring new fans around the world more than four decades after its release.”
