The soaring success of Bohemian Rhapsody – the Freddie Mercury/Queen movie which now stands as the highest grossing music biopic of all time – has proven that the public’s love for Queen remains as strong as ever. In particular, Bohemian Rhapsody attracted an audience of 9.94 million in S Korea, becoming the most popular music film ever in Korea and given a phenomenal boost to Queen’s music on streaming services. Long-time fans and recent converts will be thrilled to discover then, that Queen – original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, teaming up once more with longtime front man Adam Lambert on lead vocals – will come to Korea next year, to play <Hyundai Card Super Concert 25 Queen>.

영화 <보헤미안 랩소디>가 세계적으로 큰 공을 거두면서, 세기를 관통하는 음악성을 가진 전설적인 록 밴드 퀸이 그 건재함을 다시 한번 입증했다. 특히 우리나라에서는 영화 <보헤미안 랩소디>가 약 994만 관객을 동원하면서 신드롬에 가까운 폭발적인 인기를 얻었다. 역대 음악영화 가운데 흥행 1위를 차지했으며, 이후 퀸의 명곡들이 차트를 역주행해 현재까지도 상위권에 머물러 있는 등 한국의 팬들은 누구보다 이번 <현대카드 슈퍼콘서트 25 퀸(Queen)>의 내한공연을 고대해왔다. 

The band’s brand new larger-than-life Rhapsody tour which will first debut with 25 sold-out shows across North America this summer will arrive in S Korea in 2020 with two concerts on 18th & 19th January billed as”Hyundai Card Super Concert 25 Queen> to take place at Seoul’s Gocheok Skydome.

이번 ‘THE RHAPSODY TOUR’는 2019년 7월 캐나다 벤쿠버 로저스 아레나를 시작으로 로스앤젤레스, 워싱턴 DC, 뉴욕 매디슨 스퀘어 가든 등 북미 지역 전역을 일주하였으며 25개 공연에서 매진을 기록했다. 우리나라에서는 <현대카드 슈퍼콘서트 25 퀸>으로 2020년 1월 18일과 19일, 두 번의 공연이 고척스카이돔에서 이루어질 예정이다.

Since Adam Lambert first shared the stage with Queen for the 2009 American Idol final, his dynamic performances have reinvigorated the band and delighted fans worldwide. Their first full show together – starting as they meant to go on – thrilled a half-a-million-strong crowd in the Ukraine capital city of Kiev in June 2012. Since then May and Taylor’s musical fireworks have been matched by Lambert’s vocal prowess and stage presence, making for an explosive combination. Over 180 gigs later, the partnership has proven a commercial and critical triumph, playing to enraptured full houses in every corner of the world.

Completing the tour line-up are long-term collaborator Spike Edney on keyboards, Neil Fairclough on bass, and Tyler Warren on percussion.

Never known to rest on their laurels, Queen’s Rhapsody tour will unveil a stage show as experimental and rule-defying as the hit-packed Queen back catalogue. The band have worked with the creative partners behind the eye-popping News Of The World 2017 tour – Ric Lipson, Rob Sinclair– to develop an unmissable show

. Set designer Ric Lipson says: “Queen + Adam Lambert’s Rhapsody tour will, once again for them, expand the parameters of what a live music experience can be. This new show promises to be their most spectacular yet, an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen’s music.”

Then along came 20th Century Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody in October, 2018. The movie has topped the cinema box office in more than 35 countries around the world since its late October release, drawing worldwide box office receipts in excess of $900 million. “Bohemian Rhapsody” won four Oscar awards including best actor as well as the best actor and best film awards at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles.

In Korea, the movie, Bohemian Rhapsody screened for 140 days, attracting 9.94 million audience, recording number one as the best music related film, breaking a 6 year record. The movie now is the 6th most popular foreign film in South Korean history and created a new culture of audience singing along in movie theaters.

With the request from the public, some of the theaters opened the movie as “Sing-Along” showings. The tickets were sold-out as soon as they were opened. The atmosphere at these sing-along showings was that of live rock concert. With the legendary band’s explosive performances and years-long masterpieces, the upcoming performance in Korea will be the first must-see-event of 2020 for rock fans. They proved their stature as the 25th artist of Hyundai Card’s cultural marketing brand “Hyundai Card SUPER CONCERT”, which has been supporting the world’s best artists’ performances in Korea.

When Freddie sang The Show Must Go On all those years back, even he couldn’t have guessed that Queen music would still be thrilling audiences.

After blowing everyone away on the eighth season of American Idol, Adam Lambert went on to release his debut album ‘For Your Entertainment’ which included the international hit ‘Whatya Want From Me’ and earned him a Grammy Award nomination. Adam followed this success with his second album ‘Trespassing’ which became the first album to reach the number one spot in the US and Canada by an openly gay artist. His highly anticipated third album ‘The Original High’ was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback and included the smash hit ‘Ghost Town’. Adam joined the cast of Glee for a six-episode story in 2013 and performed the role of Eddie in Fox’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He went on to judge on The X Factor Australia where his artist, Isaiah, won the show. Last year Adam made a cameo in film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody” and begun recording his new album. 2019 will see Adam star in his first animated-live action hybrid movie ‘Playmobil: The Movie’ voicing character ‘Emperor Maximus’. He has just released track ‘Feel Something’ from his upcoming fourth album and has announced more new music will be coming in May.
