Queen has announced that their documentary film, "Bohemian Rhapsody" will premiere on 23rd Oct at London's SSE Arena, adjacent to the original Webley Stadium where Queen performed their legendary set for Live Aid Show in 1985.

In the statement, they stated, “Guests and fans will be welcomed to the iconic venue to celebrate the highly anticipated release of Bohemian Rhapsody, walking the red carpet alongside stars of the film Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello, Allen Leech, Aidan Gillen, Mike Myers and producers Graham King and Jim Beach. Joining the cast on the red carpet will be Queen legends Brian May and Roger Taylor. Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises are pleased to announce that the premiere will benefit the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the organisation founded in Freddie’s name which supports HIV/AIDS initiatives globally.”

In a recent interview, Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury, says that they filmed the Live Aid scenes first. He said that their very first shot was of them as Queen members coming out onto Wembley Stadium stage.

Last week, Queen has also announced that the soundtrack album for the feature film will hit the stores on 19th Oct, a few days prior to the premiere. It is also said that the album will include several previously unreleased tracks.
