Adam Thompson’s Bohemian Rhapsody concert updates 2021 due to covid-19 restrictions and border uncertainty

8 min read

With a run of dates planned from August through to December, Chocolate Starfish frontman Adam Thompson had plans to take his revered Bohmenian Rhapsody show around Australia. Sadly, due to the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, border closures and rapidly changing restrictions, the decision has been made to cancel some of the dates on the planned run.

For Adam, the plan going forward was always to ensure the shows that are on sale are the shows that go ahead. The team behind Bohemian Rhapsody have worked hard to sort the logistics behind the tour to ensure the remaining dates on the 2021 run will go ahead, restrictions pending. “We’ve tried to best minimise the disappointment that the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic and border closures have created, by selecting shows that we are most confident we can deliver,” says Adam. “Nonetheless, we all share in the disappointment from any cancelled shows.”

COVID-19 has hit the music touring industry hard, and Adam hopes the remaining dates will still be suitable for fans in the surrounding regions to come and share a night out. “In the words of Freddie Mercury, the show must go on…” says Adam. “… and these remaining shows will be more than worth the wait!”

Bohemian Rhapsody sees Adam Thompson showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury – owning the stage, channeling the music, and taking audiences on a journey they will never forget. The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson 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 left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an Australia Music Award for Most Popular Album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.
