Queen Performing “Bohemian Rhapsody” Live At The Old Montreal Forum In 1981
A video that will send shivers down your spine.
Anyone who is anyone (or anyone who watched Wayne's World) knows every single lyric to Bohemian Rhapsody. If you don't, well sir/madam, I am truly sorry, but you don't qualify as a functioning person in society. That was a half-joke, because if you can't go Bohemian, bro, you got problems.
Queen was, and in many ways still is, one of the most culturally influential rock groups of all time. Their wild energy and ecstatic performances earned them their place as gods of rock, and while you can never hope to hear them live today, we can still enjoy recordings of their epic sets.
In 1981, on November 24th and 25th, Queen took Montreal by storm and played at the Montreal Forum, almost exactly ten years to the date before lead singer Freddy Mercury passed away. If you loved, still love, or never even heard of Queen, watch the video below to see all the magic. At least this way you can partially sing along the next time this some drunk people sing this song at a party.
