Queen: one of the biggest bands the world has ever seen. Sell-out tours, chart-topping records and stunning success for five decades. Hundred of millions of CDs, videos and DVDS sold all over the world. They have broken records constantly: biggest ever paying crowd, longest number of weeks in the charts, headliners at the biggest festival ever and more. They have received accolades too numerous to list in full, but suffice to say 'Best Band', 'Best Album' 'Best Single', 'Best Video' and 'Best Live Act' feature again and again.
They were indicted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and given their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. The Queen musical We Will Rock You has been shown in Australia, Spain, the USA, Russia, South Africa, Germany and Japan and has been seen by more than 5,000,000 people. And the phenomenal success of the Oscar-nominated biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, has helped attract a whole new generation of Queen fans. This is their story.
