Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They've put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and I NXS's KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer - lover of life, singer of great songs - pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, slated for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson, with the We Will Rock You Band, announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept music fans demanding more dates. It was an opportunity that Adam couldn't resist.
