Dublin's Olympia Theatre to host Bohemian Rhapsody and The Greatest Showman sing-a-longs
Absolute heaven for fans of Queen and The Greatest Showman.
There's a scene in the Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody that captures the unique appeal of Queen and what made their stadium rock anthems such classics.
As the band convene in the studio to record their latest album, Brian May gathers the other members of the band to tell them about a song that he's been working on.
"I want to give an audience a song that they can perform," said the guitarist.
Two foot stamps and a clap of the hands follow. The seeds of 'We Will Rock You' were born.
From the moment that the song was recorded, Queen knew that they had a track that would unite fans all over the world. A Bohemian Rhapsody sing-a-long that's coming to the Olympia Theatre is further proof of just that.
The iconic venue will host a sing-a-long-for the movie on Sunday, 26 April, with tickets going on sale this Friday, 24 January.
A screening of the movie will take place where fans can belt out Queen's iconic track to their hearts' content.
Tickets are priced from €20 including booking fee and a €1 restoration levy.
"Sing-A-Long-A’s live host will warm up your voices in true Freddie Mercury style, teach you some iconic dance moves and show you how to use your interactive prop bags," the event listing reads.
"Then sit back and sing along with the on screen lyrics to 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' 'Under Pressure' and 'Somebody to Love' not forgetting you the audience becoming part of their famous Live Aid concert. We guarantee to have you walking out feeling like the 'Champions of the World!'"
As for fans of The Greatest Showman, due to demand, another sing-a-long performance is scheduled to take place in the same venue. Fans of the musical can belt out their favourite songs on Sunday 26 April for a 2pm matinee show.
Having sold-out six previous shows in September 2019 and January 2020, this particular event has proven to be quite popular with Irish audiences.
Fans can cheer on Hugh Jackman and company and experience The Greatest Showman in the greatest way possible - with lyrics on the screen to join in as loud as you want.
Tickets for this particular show cost €20 including booking fee and €1 restoration levy.
