They even hummed out the guitar solo.
As 65,000 Green Day fans eagerly waited at London’s Hyde Park on July 1 for the punk rock band to set up the stage and start playing, the stadium blared out Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody on the speakers.
The inevitable happened – all 65,000 fans passionately broke into song, matching Freddie Mercury’s voice note for note. The best part is, many of the audience even hummed out the guitar solo.
The video recorded from the stage perfectly captured the crowd’s enraptured rendition of the song. A cult song, Bohemian Rhapsody has earned a name for itself as one of the most popular numbers in the world, especially for its sing-alongs (which have been referenced frequently in pop-culture and memes).
For anyone who knows the song or loves singing it, the video is sure to have them covered in goosebumps – many viewers teared up. As someone commented, “It’s just so emotional because all those thousands people who don’t know each other, are just unified by music,” while another wrote, “Only Queen can rock an entire stadium without even being there.” A third joked, “Imagine standing there not knowing the lyrics.”
A similar scene occurred in 2013, at the Emirates stadium, also before a Green Day show. Watch the video:
