Queen: A Night in Bohemia will feature highlights from the famous show, including the first live recorded performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody," as well as a new documentary boasting archival footage and rare interviews with the band's four members.
The concert originally aired live on the British television show The Old Grey Whistle Test, and was released in various video and audio formats and configurations in November under the title A Night at the Odeon. Besides "Bohemian Rhapsody," Queen also performed songs like "Killer Queen," "Keep Yourself Alive" and "Now I'm Here" at the show.
The documentary tells the story of the group's rise to fame, and features outtakes of the recording sessions for "Bohemian Rhapsody," as well as recently rediscovered clips of Queen's first promo videos, for the songs "Liar" and "Keep Yourself Alive."
Tickets for the Queen: A Night in Bohemia screenings go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 12. The event will be shown at 7 p.m. local time on March 8. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit FathomEvents.com.
