Rock legends QUEEN in an exhibition of photographs – some previously unreleased – from 28th September until 20th October at the renowned Gasteig Concert Hall in Munich.
Since its opening on 9th September, the glamorous rock musical “WE WILL ROCK YOU” thrills the audience at the “Deutsches Theater” in Munich
A second highlight is now presented to all QUEEN fans in the renowned Gasteig Concert Hall: “ONE VISION – THE MAGIC OF QUEEN”.
The unique exhibition assembles around 60 exhibits documenting the vision and development of this extraordinary band. The impressive photographs, some of which have never been published before, come from various private collections, the QUEEN archive, and several music publishers, and were curated and exclusively made available by the legendary QUEEN manager Jim Beach for this spectacular exhibition.
The photographs in the exhibition are by renowned photographers Terry O’Neill, Neal Preston, Peter Hince, Lord Snowdon, Denis O’Regan, George Hurrell, Simon Fowler, David Bailey, Richard Young, Jill Furmanovsky and Arthur Edwards, who all accompanied the band at different stages of its career and whose cameras captured crucial moments in the band´s history, preserving them for all eternity.
Formed at the beginning of the 70s, the band – consisting of guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor, bassist John Deacon and lead singer Freddie Mercury – developed an idiosyncratic, progressive style that was to become an influential and unmistakable sound in the history of rock music. Their concerts were glamorous and spectacular, their costumes extravagant, their lighting and set grandiose and gigantic.
Munich was a second home to these musicians for much of the 80s: four albums were created here, and some of the band’s first concerts took place in the Bavarian capital.
This extravagant and bombastic sound makes out of WE WILL ROCK YOU a veritable rock spectacular! With worldwide over 16 million spectators, WE WILL ROCK YOU is one of the most successful musicals of all time performing until 13th December at the “Deutsches Theater” in Munich.
Rosenheimer Str. 5
28th Sep – 20th Oct, Monday – Sunday 8am – 11pm
The exhibition is situated in the “Glashalle” on the first floor, the entrance is free!
