Twentieth Century Fox, New Regency and GK Films will expand “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Golden Globe winner for Best Picture (Drama), starring Rami Malek, Golden Globe winner for Best Actor (Drama), to more than 1300 theaters in the U.S. and Canada this Friday, January 11. More than 750 of the locations will be playing a never before experienced “sing-along” version of the foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Chris Aronson, Twentieth Century Fox President of Domestic Distribution said, “We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to see this outstanding Golden Globe-winning film featuring Rami Malek’s amazing Golden Globe-winning performance in theaters all over the US and Canada in both its original form and in a never-before-experienced “sing-along” version.”
“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the highest-grossing musical biopic of all time, has amassed a worldwide box office total of over $734.4 million to date. In addition to its Golden Globe wins, the film has received SAG nominations for Outstanding Male Actor (Rami Malek) and Outstanding Cast; PGA nomination for Outstanding Producer (Graham King); and Broadcast Film Critics Association nominations for Best Actor (Malek), Best Costume Design and Best Hairstyling and Makeup.
On top of that, to celebrate the fans that made Bohemian Rhapsody the number one music biopic of all time, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites them to join the ultimate Queen celebration at events across the country, in their own homes and on social media. Are you ready, Freddie?
Rock Like Queen Tour Bus
Fans in New York City (January 25), Austin (January 30), Las Vegas (February 5) and Los Angeles (February 12) will have a chance to hop on board the double-decker Rock Like Queen Tour Bus and sing-along to their favorite Queen songs from “We Will Rock You” to “Radio Ga Ga”. Fans can sign up for a spot via Rock Like Queen Tour registration site www.rocklikequeen.com. Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
“Get Loud” Extravaganza
The Rock Like Queen Tour will culminate in the ultimate Queen fan experience at the legendary Whiskey A-Go-Go on the famed Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. This Bohemian Rhapsody super-fan celebration will include musical tributes to Freddie and Queen, a performance by Queen Extravaganza and more. Free tickets are available online on a first come, first served basis at gofobo.com/getloudwithqueen.
“Alexa, play Ay-Oh live!”
For fans in the US who can’t make the Rock Like Queen Tour or the Los Angeles event, they can join the fun at home via a new Amazon Alexa skill that will enable fans to sing “Ay-Oh” with Freddie when they call out “Alexa, play Ay-Oh live!” Freddie will sing “Ay-Oh” with you just like Queen’s audience did during the band’s iconic Live Aid 1985 performance. US Fans can activate the skill via Amazon Alexa devices starting January 22 through March 31.
