The Story of Queen: Mercury Rising

Queen, it can be safely said they were one of the worlds greatest rock bands of all time, having set records never before seen in the music industry, selling out tours like no tomorrow and topping all the charts. With frontman Freddie Mercury dead over 20 years, the band still remains incredibly popular with album sales having topped 300 million sales worldwide.

It all began in 1971, when Queen released their first two albums Queen (1973) and Queen II (1974). These were the catalyst for what was to follow but it wasn’t until of Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night at the Opera (featuring Bohemian Rhapsody) in 1975 that the band went on to achieve global stardom.

Through classic archive footage and some of their greatest hits and interviews with Brian May and the likes of Paul Gambaccini, their incredible and unique story is told. This is the story of Queen.
