Free exhibition Queen: The Unseen Archive starts today in London, 30th July
Posted: 30th July 2009
The Unseen Archive is the must-see of the next coming weeks.
What is it exactly? Well, no less than a retrospective collection of exclusive pics of the (late) national treasure that is Freddie Mercury and his world widely-acclaimed outfit, Queen.
The Unseen Archive was shot by Peter Hince, who, from meeting the band in the early 1970s, worked his way up from the position of roadie, to becoming their head of crew until their unexpected demise. These candid and personal shots, which span over a decade (1973 to 1986), will virtually grant backstage access to all Queen fans.
"The Show Must Go On", Freddie once sang and it surely does as The Unseen Archive opens today, July 30th (exactly 23 years since Queen's final live appearance) for the duration of six weeks, until September 13th, at Proud Central gallery, which sits just minutes from Trafalgar Square. All free of charge.
