'Killer Queen' Photography Exhibition Celebrates the Life of Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury fans will have plenty of opportunities to celebrate the late icon in November. Following the release of the Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody on November 2, the Morrison Hotel Gallery is launching a photography exhibition celebrating the legacy of the singer and Queen at both its Los Angeles and New York City outposts.
Opening on November 2 in Los Angeles and November 5 in New York, "KILLER QUEEN" will showcase photographs taken by legendary British music photographer Mick Rock. Rock worked with the band during its heyday and produced some of its most memorable imagery, including the Queen II album cover.
"In the early days of my friendship with Freddie, he said to me, 'The most important thing is to have a fabulous life. As long as it's fabulous I don't care how long it is,'" Rock said of Mercury in a press release. "His is generally regarded as the greatest voice to be spawned by rock n roll."
Rock's more recognizable pictures of the band will be accompanied by prints that have never before been displayed to the public. The photographs will also be available to purchase.
If you're interested in viewing some historic Queen photography and potentially taking some of it home, you can visit the exhibit in either Los Angeles or New York through November 10, 2018.
