5 Feb. For one day only, the Barberini cinema in Rome is screening "Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest", one of the last Queen concerts to feature the band's legendary frontman Freddie Mercury.
On 27 July 1986, Queen held a major concert at the Nepstadium of Budapest in front of 80,000 fans. It was the first time a Western band had played behind the Iron Curtain, three years before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Aware of the historic event, the Hungarian authorities decided to record the concert.
The result is Hungarian Rhapsody, now remastered and in high definition. The concert includes Queen classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, A Kind of Magic, I Want To Break Free, Under Pressure, Who Wants to Live Forever, and We Are the Champions. It also features backstage images and footage of Queen's tour of Hungary.
The film will be screened in over 100 cinemas across Italy on 5 Feb, and follows the successful showing on 20 November, which attracted more than 40,000 spectators in Italy.
See the Cinema Barberini website for more details.
