Freddie Mercury as a film !
Latest News - Music News

PR-inside.com reports that Freddie Mercury's life story is being turned into a Hollywood film.

The legendary QUEEN frontman — famous for such hits as "We Are The Champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" — tragically died of AIDS in 1991 and now his former bandmate Brian May has revealed a biopic about his troubled life is on the way.

The guitarist told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "There is a film in the pipeline and we're all involved in it. I'm not allowed to say much about it and casting isn't finalised but we've had some incredible offers to play Freddie. Really incredible."

May has also lifted the lid on his next project, a new album with QUEEN drummer Roger Taylor. It will be the first QUEEN record of new material since Mercury's untimely death.

May said "It's going really well. Is there a track which will be a tribute to Freddie? Well, we're just writing what we want at the moment but it's all a tribute to Freddie. I mean, without him, we wouldn't be here."

The rock band's back catalogue is already the inspiration for long-running West End musical "We Will Rock You" and recently a TV documentary, "Freddie Mercury: A Kind Of Magic", was aired to commemorate what would have been the singer's 60th birthday.

College Park Now Has an Opera to Call Its Own
Pittsburgh-Based Players Squonk Globally And Act Locally

Next week marks the debut of "College Park: The Opera" at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Dempsey and O'Hearn, artistic directors of Squonk Opera, created the work for their 14-year-old troupe, which is based in Pittsburgh. And while U.S. 1 is no Venetian canal, O'Hearn says the home of the Terps provides plenty of artistic inspiration.

"What the national media gives you are all these stories about [expletive] New York and L.A., like we care about what's happening on Mulholland Drive or Manhattan," O'Hearn, 48, says. "We can do this about College Park, and that's a good and healthy thing to do."  more below........

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford of the iconic band Genesis unveiled the dates for their first tour in 15 years. Turn It On Again - the tour, will see the band play a series of stadium concerts in Europe in the summer of 2007. Kicking off in the Olympic Stadium, Helsinki on 11 June, the tour will hit twelve different European countries, ending in Rome on 14 July. At a Pan-European press conference staged today at London's exclusive Mayfair hotel and hosted by comedian and lifelong Genesis fan, David Baddiel, the band took questions from international media about their reasons for reforming and thoughts on the tour.

European tour promoter, John Giddings, commented:
"It is a privilege to work with one of the greatest rock bands of all time, and to see their musical talent together again onstage will be incredible. The live shows are as famous as their music."

The "Turn It On Again" tour will be travelling to all the biggest stadiums as it treks across Europe in 2007 through Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Germany, France, Holland, UK, Monte Carlo and Italy. For all European tour dates, please go HERE.

Tickets will be on sale for UK dates on 24 November and for dates in Germany on 10 November. Other on-sale dates to be announced.

Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford will be joined on stage by long time Genesis sidemen, Chester Thompson on drums and Daryl Steurmer on guitar. Two of the world's greatest show technicians, award-winning lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe and acclaimed set designer Mark Fisher are working on plans for the 2007 Genesis tour.

Genesis have sold over 130 million albums, it is one of a small elite of British bands who have achieved global success and sustained it over four decades. Genesis was formed in 1966 by Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips, while still at school, but its most successful incarnation was the late 70's early 80's line-up of Phil Collins taking on lead vocals and sharing songwriting, with Rutherford and Banks. The Duke album topped the UK charts in 1980 with the hit single, Turn It On Again monopolising the airwaves.
