Queen was formed 1971 and since those days sold millions of records. The band has won all the greatest rock awards and is considered one of the all time classic artists. From all Queen’s greatest songs We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions have entered the Grammy Hall Of Fame.

Queen has made music history being the first artist whose record has been sold in excess of six million copies in the UK. This Greatest Hits album achieved another record by remaining in the UK album charts for 1,422 weeks. In Finland Greatest Hits still remains the most sold foreign album with sales nearing 150,000 copies.

Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Radio Ga Ga, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls and Bicycle Race are great examples of Queen songs which Finnish audiences can enjoy at Kaisaniemi Park next summer.
