About the Band
Various members of Queen began playing together in 1968 under the name Smile,
but as members cycled out the band decided to switch their name to Queen after the suggestion of lead singer Freddie Mercury.
For a while the group had a hard time finding a bass player that fit into the band but they finally played their first show
with what is known as their classic line-up on July 2nd 1971 just outside of England. The following year they went on to sign
a management deal with Trident/EMI and released their self-titled debut in 1973, followed by Queen II which was released in
1974 and features the iconic photo of the band on its cover. The band went on to release 15 albums: Queen, Queen II, Sheer
Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, A Day at the Race, News of the World, Jazz, The Game, Flash Gordon, Hot Space, The Works,
A Kind of Magic, The Miracle, Innuendo, and 1995's Made in Heaven. In late 1991, lead singer Freddie Mercury died of bronchial
pneumonia complications brought about by AIDS, but the band's legacy had already been cemented. Their song Bohemian Rhapsody
had been voted the favorite single of all time in the U.K., and Queen's Greatest Hits compilation had become the best selling
album of all time in their home country. Countless bands have been influenced by Queen, and the band continues to tour despite
having lost their iconic front man a few decades ago. These days Queen is fronted by Adam Lambert, the runner-up of the 2009
American Idol contest who performed an amazing rendition of a Queen song in front of millions. Now the band and the superstar
have teamed up to tour all across North America.
In 1975 Queen released their fourth album,
A Night at the Opera, which was a huge hit. The smash single Bohemian Rhapsody is featured on the album and spent nine weeks
at the top of the British charts. A Night at the Opera has gone on to be recognized as one of the best rock albums of all
time according to several publications including the Guinness Book of World Records and Rolling Stone Magazine.

Mercury's real name is Farrokh Bulsara who began using the English name Freddie while he was attending Ealing Art College.
After they had already formed Queen, Freddie changed his last name to Mercury after the song My Fairy King which contains
the lyric, Mother Mercury, look what they've done to me.
