La legendaria banda británica Queen se convirtió el lunes en el primer grupo de rock que es homenajeado con una moneda de coleccionista, que incluye todos los instrumentos de sus componentes, incluido el piano de su difunto cantante Freddie Mercury.

Queen, “una de las bandas de rock m√°s emblem√°ticas de todos los tiempos”, inaugura as√≠ una serie de monedas dedicadas a las leyendas de la m√ļsica, inform√≥ la Real Casa de la Moneda.

En el dise√Īo de la moneda figuran los instrumentos de cada uno de los miembros fundadores del grupo: la guitarra de Brian May, el bajo de John Deacon, la bater√≠a de Roger Taylor y el piano de Freddie Mercury, cuyas teclas tocan notas del principio de su popular canci√≥n Bohemian Rhapsody.

“Es realmente un momento en el que piensas ‘¬Ņqui√©n podr√≠a haber imaginado tal cosa?’. Cuando empezamos, incluso el primer pelda√Īo de la escalera de la fama parec√≠a inalcanzable”, afirm√≥ Brian May en un comunicado difundido por Universal Records.

“Tener nuestra banda y nuestra m√ļsica reconocida de esta manera es muy conmovedor y un verdadero honor”, agreg√≥.

The Rhapsody Tour is the latest astonishing chapter in the story of rock’s greatest band. After record-breaking dates in the US, Queen + Adam Lambert are now taking their even most technically and musically ambitious touring production which puts a brand new, highly distinctive spin on three decades of Queen music to Korea, Japan and Australia and New Zealand. The tour kicked off Thursday January 16 with a packed to the rafters press conference in Seoul, South Korea where their Bohemian Rhapsody film became a national phenomenon, sparking a sing-along screening phenomenon where audiences returned time and again making it the second highest international box office figure in its release. Queen + @adamlambert play two Seoul @gocheok_skydome_official concerts this weekend before moving on to play four Japan shows in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, then heading to shows in New Zealand and Australia, including a special appearance at the Sydney Fire Fight Australia concert for Bushfire Relief at Sydney Anz Stadium Olympic Park on Sunday 16 February. #QAL2020 #RhapsodyTour
