QUEEN A Night at The Odeon - The Before and After Moment

on

On December 24th, 1975 QUEEN recorded a live show at the legendary Hammersmith Odeon in London. The was not released until 2015 and it's a must listen and see for any QUEEN fan. The set is of course amazing with the first 2 albums featured heavily, but what is really captivating this show is the "before and after" moment for the band. They had peaked at #12 on the US Charts with Sheer Hear Attack and have just released the A Night at the Opera album. Bohemian Rhapsody is featured in a melody of song snippets with no particular fanfare, giving no hint of how the lives of the band would change over the next year. Once A Night at the Opera and the mania of Bohemian Rhapsody takes hold, QUEEN is not longer that super cool progressive rock band that early fans had to themselves....they become one of the biggest recording/live acts in the world. A bitter sweet before and after moment for the fans that were there at the beginning.

KnuckleBonz is currently working with QUEEN and are coming to the end of our initial Rock Iconz Statues for the band. As you know, all KnuckleBonz work are officially licensed limited edition. Check out Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon circa 1982 here.

We are beginning to design the new QUEEN Rock Iconz statues for tentative release late in 2022. KnuckleBonz is thinking of going back to this QUEEN A Night at The Odeon era for inspiration. Sound off here and let us know what QUEEN fans would like to see.

Rock Hard!
